Music Review: Reevah – Hummingbird
Reevah is a fairly new, up and coming artist from Derry/Londonderry with a unique sound. She describes her ethereal singer-songwriter sound as “Dreamy Folk” and, in my opinion, she’s got it spot on.
Reevah has been greatly received by audiences in Ireland and beyond. Most recently Reevah was involved in a collaborative ‘Civil Rights’ project with the Ulster Orchestra, performing live in concert on May 12th 2018 at The Nerve Centre, Derry/Londonderry.
The release of Reevah’s debut EP ‘Hummingbird’ is almost upon us and will be available from all major digital online stores and streaming sights from June 1st 2018.
The EP showcases what Reevah can do with 3 quite different songs all with their unique sound. Beginning with their trade “Dreamy Folk” sound Hummingbird has a slow, relax tempo that glides through the song like honey.
When listening to Night’s, I noticed that it is a very immersive song. I could just imagine a boat in the middle of the ocean swaying with the current. It has a very calming melody that would send you off to sleep in a trance (in a good way, of course).
Run Away is very different to the other songs in the EP. The first obvious difference is the tempo, this time it is a lot more up beat. The tempo of the song is apt for this tune as she keeps asking if you want to run away. If I could pick out of the 3 songs, this would be my favourite however, it is a close call.
Overall, ‘Hummingbird’ is a great EP and I look forward to hearing more from Reevah in the future.
