Lambent Flame

Lambent Flame is the debut album by Molly May O’Leary, with Fionn Ó hAlmhain on flute, whistle, uilleann pipes and accompanying vocals, and Liam Ó Maonlaí on piano, harmonium, synth, Hammond organ, and also guitar, harp percussion and accompanying vocals. Lambent flame means flickering fire. The songwriting was sparked by fire in the belly, and the shared charge and love of the studio keeps the flame alive with warmth, vulnerability and hypnotic glow. Lambent Flame is a spiritual expedition, a deep dive into pre-existing fairy tales, both local (Irish) and global (Disney), and an imperfect weave of deeply personal history and collective narratives, traditional music and contemporary sensibilities, top-down technologies and bodies sighing, laughing, singing, strumming.
