Curfew - Declan de Barra - Song Of A Thousand Birds
There's an intensity and darkness which stems from the way he wraps his voice around the lyrics. Not since Jeff Buckley has hope ever sounded so desperate and wanting. Desolate and bare, it affords de Barra's voice the opportunity to soar. His phrasing, enriched by his country accent, only serves to highlight the vulnerability he sings about.
A passionate, intense and stunning record. Hotpress Magazine Ireland - Single of the fortnight - Hotpress single of the fortnight. Big words but just listen Sag Mir Wo Die Blomen Sind (Where Have All The Flowers Gone) - Irwin Goodman - Kellarissa Lavalla St 'Throw Your arms Around Me' or 'Blackbird Song' and you will feel like de Barra has just plugged himself directly into your psyche's shadow.
Cello, fiddle,piano and guitar adorn this hideously beautiful debut. Some singer songwriters take time to win the listener over. Others have voices so evocative that they carry you away at once. Declan de Barra's mesmerizing Falsetto has a strange, erie beauty that can stop the unsuspecting in their tracks. He comes from a trad background but his sparse and lonesome torch songs are closer in spirit to latter-day crooners Antony Hegarty and Rufus Wainright.
On his debut solo album, song of a thousand birds, the waterford native is careful to keep his melodramatic impulses in check. For all it's sweep and grandeur, this is a stripped down record at heart, often consisting only of de Barra's voice and a gentle piano note. Singer songwriters rarely stand out from the crowd at first inspection. De Barra takes your breath away from the very beginning. If the singles released thus far are anything to go by, Declan de Barra's forthcoming debut Song of A Thousand Birds should prove Curfew - Declan de Barra - Song Of A Thousand Birds cracker.
Again de Barra's fragile and emotive voice is to the fore, often bringing a spiritual quality to the track. This particularly shines through in de Barra's of t bewitching and poignant lyrics.
Another gem and another track to whet anticipation for Song of a Thousand Birds. Hotpress Magazine - Ireland - Hotpress- Ireland. To say that his former band, Clann Zu, was everything a band should ever be is absolute truth. To say that de Barra could never live up to the unbelievable expectations his previous works The New Symphony Orchestra Of London, Raymond Agoult - Overture!
Overture set is pure science fiction. On his first official solo album, Song of a Thousand Birds, DeClan shows that he may not have progressed mightily, but he also most certainly has not lost a step. At times minimalist, at others thoroughly drenched in instrumentation, Song for a Thousand Birds is a rare display, an album that allows de Barra's distinctly original baritone to shine, accentuating the positives and downplaying the negatives.
His phrasings, which have always been slightly off-kilter, are powerful, precise, and dramatic. His lilting, soaring voice fills space like few others. Whether it be pitted against guitar or violin, DeClan de Barra's voice always comes out victorious. Much like his voice, his first solo album, Song of a Thousand Birds, is a triumph.
