NEW SINGLE from
MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
OUT MAY 14TH 2021
"Her voice…we couldn’t stop talking as she was playing about how stunning it is!".
Phoebe I H
With playful lyrics, warm harmonies and her signature, lilting voice, Alannah Moar has cultivated a powerful rawness in her music that will stick with you. From the age of fourteen, Alannah has been writing and performing her own material; teaching herself guitar and later finding her footing in the local folk scene of Aberdeenshire. Since relocating to Edinburgh, Alannah has spent time developing her sound, working alongside the likes of Berta Kennedy, Matthew Alexander and Gus Harrower. Consequently, her music has matured into a rich amalgamation of folk, pop and rock music, reminiscent of Kate Bush, Orla Gartland and Annie Booth.
In Alannah's latest release, she wears her heart firmly on her sleeve. Middle of the Night reads like a diary, depicting an explosive revenge fantasy on a cheating partner. A truly DIY record, Alannah wrote, recorded and produced the track (which only took a few days to write) over two years - even playing strings in the song's opening sequence. The song is a confrontation never had, the visceral fury we dare not act upon. Middle of the Night is the unashamedly unpolished eye for an eye response. This is a song for those who are sick of "boys being boys" and want to scream at them instead.
