Track of the Day: Fionn Regan – The Meetings of the Waters

Fionn Regan – The Meetings of the Waters 

Irish singer-songwriter Fionn Regan recently featured on Bon Iver’s album and has his own LP – of the same name as this single – due for release in April.

Meetings of the Waters is not a revolutionary recreation of the indie folk genre, but it is a rather pretty and delicate tale of love, tenderness and contentment. In the second verse he sings:

Your skin tastes of gorse flowers, as we lie in the dark

Mouth is of sapphires, when you speak there’s a spark across the room

It’s a gentle poetic ripple as two streams entwine. Elegant in its simplicity, and fragile in its construction, its long fade out only adds to the sensation that if you move too quickly, you could break this rather enchanting spell.
