Singer songwriter Maria Kelly Returns With New Music

Music Review | 23rd May, 2024 Maria Kelly Maria Kelly

Irish singer songwriter Maria Kelly has been crafting her own world of delicately woven indie-folk that packs a punch and cuts to the bone while soothing like a balm.

The latest track from the singer, Drive, deals with longing for closure, and grappling with the reality that it may never come. It's a rose-tinted story of 'what-ifs', fueled by the desire for forgiveness, and the need for permission to finally move on.

Discussing the track Maria says;

I wrote - Drive - as a sort of comforting daydream as I looked back on my past relationships. I've always struggled with the fact that people who once meant so much to you can suddenly become a stranger again.
I know that growing apart is natural, but I've never been able to move through that loss with ease - especially when so much is left unsaid at the end of it. 'Drive' is a yearning to go find them now, explain, and have them ease the guilt - and an attempt at accepting that it won't ever happen.

Drive is featured in the trailer for the film Ezra, starring Bobby Cannavale, Rose Byrne, Whoopi Goldberg, and Robert De Niro.
