Rising star Joey Donnelly, the man who is elkyn, continues his ascent with news that his debut album ‘holy spirit social club’ arrives on the 18th of March via Curation Records, the Los Angeles-based record label run by Brent Rademaker of GospelbeacH and Beachwood Sparks fame.
And in anticipation of his forthcoming album, elkyn shares his new single, ‘talon’. Speaking about the track, Joey Donnelly said: “talon’s about being thrown a bit more into adulthood and trying to form different relationships. It’s from a perspective from me now after finishing uni and the years before feeling pretty meaningless now.
“The song starts off from a place of feeling comfortable with someone whilst being pretty uncomfortable with everything else going on. Then moves onto losing that from not being able to speak or communicate anything and doing the classic of just pushing everything away instead.”
Listen to ‘talon’ here:
