Its been a while... We are super excited to welcome Maria Somerville back to Plugd on March 8th with Howlbux [Elaine Howley / Irene Buckley] on support

Building from a reputation of enthralling live shows Maria Somerville readies her debut LP, All My People, a self release on vinyl and digital formats coming out on March 1st 2019. The music is a collection of works recorded across Dublin, Cornamona and Inis Óirr - a tiny island sitting off Ireland’s west coast.
Somerville draws on conventional folk forms alongside post-punk, traditional Irish motifs, starry eyed pop and hypnotic drones to create wholly original music that is a product of its environment. Somerville channels the wilderness of the Irish landscape through dense, ethereal soundscapes and bare boned percussion interspersed with ghostly vocals that are ever present and all encompassing, like crystalline glints of sunshine peeking through dark stormy clouds.
The duality of darkness and light is at play throughout the releases seven tracks - comfort is found in heartbreak, solace in despair and quixotic wonderment in the infinite melancholia. Somerville lays her heart bear and invites you into it with tales of doomed romance, bittersweet love stories and longings of ‘home’, in both the physical and metaphysical sense. All My People is a luscious entry into the world of Maria Somerville.
