Jealous Of The Birds – Something Holy

18 September, Belfast-based Naomi Hamilton, a.k.a. Jealous Of The Birds, releases her second album Peninsula. In addition to recent single Young Neanderthal, she now serves up a second track ahead of the long-player.

Something Holy is a timeless tune with the freshness of a sea breeze. It’s got acoustic guitars, a tambourine, soft drums, a walking bassline and a gentle guitar melody.

Hamilton says of the new track: “Something Holy was written on a trip I took to Lisbon, Portugal after a burnout. My perception of things had become pretty stale, so the song articulates grappling with one’s artistic practice and trying to see the innate sanctity of simple images in all their concreteness. The particularity of things and the sheer marvel that they even exist is very grounding to me. Being present and paying attention to all of that brought me back around.”

Peninsula was produced by Marta Salogni (Björk, M.I.A.) and David Wrench (Jaime xx, David Byrne). The songs mark Jealous Of The Birds’ continuing progression from bedroom recordings to more expansive and inventive use of the studio.
