A tastemaker on the rise, Reevah resets the standard with her latest release ‘Call Me Up’, a vibrant alt-pop track threaded with a blitz of fun indie rock nuances. In this collaborative track, we see pop hook songwriting infused with virtuoso centric influence from live drummer Brian Doherty & producer extraordinaire Matt Weir (Tuesday Club) resulting in the emergence of a richly textured experimental pop banger.
Having achieved international airplay in Ireland, the UK, US & beyond, this track sets the tone for a series of incoming releases for 2023. With references like Phoebe Bridgers, Maggie Rogers, Florence + The Machine & London Grammar; it’s no surprise that Reevah sports an instantly magnetic vocal allure which will undoubtedly appeal to fans old and new.
With a songwriting focus on the frailties, confusions and vulnerabilities that come with everyday experience; Reevah (real name Aoife Boyle) seeks to place these topics in an empowering light to foster connection with listeners who are living similar experiences.
Supported by Bloom Records, a new imprint from Dublin’s Faction Records led by Irish music beacon Aine Cronin – McCartney (presenter @ BBC Introducing, artist manager & multifaceted A&R), we look forward to seeing Reevah build upon her already impressive achievements including an NI Music Prize nomination for Best Single, RTÉ Radio One airplay plus shows with The Coronas and SOAK.
When discussing the expansion of this collaborative project from the previous EP offering ‘Begin, Again’, Reevah explains, “We’re on the same path sonically, so that’s really exciting too. We’re trying to pick it up and let people know what the potential of Reevah is, especially as a live act. We’ve had some great things happen at home but we’re definitely looking to expand that further.”
“I don’t tend to write about soft subjects, Reevah concludes, ‘Call Me Up’ possesses a dogged determination to refuse to adhere to social expectations. “It’s basically about smashing the patriarchy. It’s about going through the motions, but trying to break away from them and away from what women are perceived to be. I’m worth more than this. I can do more than society expects me to do.”
“I feel like this is just the beginning.”
