From the moment Áine Cahill made her TV debut to millions in 2016, she was set for fame. Plucked from a pub stage at Glastonbury to perform live on the BBC’s festival coverage, before Coldplay’s set on the Sunday night, she mesmerised viewers who could scarcely believe that she wasn’t already a star. In fact, the then 21 year old was a naïve newcomer from a village in County Cavan, being managed by her postman.
This year will mostly be devoted to writing and releasing new material, although Áine continues to play live and a few festivals have been booked. She has been co-writing, but only on her own terms. “I’ve got here on my own songs,” she says. “I’m happy to have help and I won’t be a bitch, but I’ll never sing a song that isn’t me. I have to be myself.”
Forthcoming track Psycho is case in point. Produced with Courage, it’s a sassy, spectral beauty steeped in beats and strings.
