About Aoife Nessa Frances
Partisan Records have signed Irish artist Aoife Nessa Frances, who today has released a new single entitled “Emptiness Follows” with accompanying video. To celebrate this release, Aoife announces a headline Irish tour taking place in Dublin, Limerick, Galway and Cork this November.
The track is a mesmerizing, pastoral piece of psych-folk, the playfulness of Aoife’s instrumentation juxtaposed by her beguiling voice as she meditates on the pain of friendships drifting apart (“the weight of the water / it holds you and tortures time away from you”). It's also the first taste of the follow up to her much loved 2020 debut 'Land of No Junction'.
Aoife elaborates on the song’s origins: ‘Emptiness Follows’ is about the intimacy and deep emotional connection of friendship. The song captures these moments �" the water as the weight of the emotional connection we share, the small details we remember ‘the shape sits beneath your earlobe’. The movement and colour of the music, the harp constantly flowing throughout, are emphasising a profound importance in acknowledging an eternal kind of love. I wanted my voice to be close and up front and vulnerable like Serge Ginsberg’s ‘ Histoire de Melody Nelson’’.
The accompanying video was directed by filmmaker Zoe Greenway and was shot in the South of Ireland in Kinsale, Co Cork. Greenway contextualizes: "The video for Emptiness Follows emulates an impressionistic vision of memories. The juxtaposition of light and dark imagery replicates a feeling of fragmented remembrances. The evocative visual textures explore the distorted yet halcyon nature of memory." It's a perfect visual representation of Aoife's thrilling emotional and sonic landscape. Where Frances’ powerful voice lights a path through intricate arrangements and psychedelic flourishes.
Having just wrapped up a tour of Europe with the Weather Station, Aoife is currently on tour in America supporting Alex Cameron. She’ll tour Europe again this fall supporting Destroyer in addition to a run of newly-announced headline dates.
A cassette release of "Emptiness Follows" will include the B-side "Emptiness Follows (Dreams of Our Love)," an experimental alternative to the A-side. Both are available to listen to digitally now and out physically June 17th.
