Irish indie/post-rock/lo-fi band NewDad have unleashed their new single “Let Go” and its accompanying video.
The track another taste of their highly-anticipated debut album ‘MADRA‘, produced by NewDad’s long-time collaborator Chris W Ryan (Just Mustard) and mixed by Alan Moulder (The Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, Wet Leg), due out on 26 January 2024 through Fair Youth/Atlantic.

Speaking about it, singer/guitarist Julie Dawson says: “Let Go is about not being able to get better, and how you can’t shield yourself from your demons; it’s about people trying but failing to pull you out of those thoughts and feelings. Saint Brigid’s crosses were believed to bring protection from evil, so we felt having them included in the artwork and video was representative of people trying to save and protect you. We wanted to bring a level of Irish mysticism into the visuals as well. Making them for the video was nostalgic because we used to make them every year in school, back in Ireland.”
