Conor Furlong, solo artist from Dublin Ireland announced the release of his new single “Alien”, the video for the song of the same name was posted on YouTube
Conor was quoted:-“I write, arrange, perform and produce music in my home I am often asked how I would describe my music. The best way I know how to answer that is to list my influences. Artists such as: A-ha, R.E.M., The Beach Boys, David Bowie, AIR, The Monkees, Phil Spector and Mercury Rev, among many others. Paintings and films often influence me as much as music. The works of Monet, Miro, Dali, Hundertwasser, Van Gogh and others are extremely inspiring. They have often made me want to create songs that could in some way compliment the visuals created by those geniuses. I am a huge fan of the films of Hitchcock, and the music Bernard Herrmann composed for his films. The score Herrmann composed for “Vertigo” is a major influence.”
The song “Alien” has a misty and hypnotic quality, quite mesmerizing and yet, there is sadness to it as well, like falling in love yet knowing it will end far too soon, yet doing it all anyway, like moving into a ghost town and hoping for company. It is both beautiful and melancholy simultaneously.
