“But that never happened, so I decided the best I could do now is to just release it and move on to new work. I was just like, ‘I’m going to put it out and see what the response is’. And it’s been really good so far.
An introspective record, focused mainly on a dichotomy of self-knowledge and escape, Loud Demure is a Ronseal title, according to O’Mullane: speaking clearly about the thoughts that inspired the record’s creation, while allowing a minimum of sonic distraction from its message.
O’Mullane took the opportunity to compare and contrast processes. “I don’t even know how it happened, really. I just got into my head that I wanted to, to release these songs, and I was doing the Luunah stuff with Brian Casey the whole time. I said I was doing stuff, would it be okay if he helped me out with a few songs and he was, like, ‘absolutely’. I was comfortable working with him and I knew how he’d worked as well.
