Sarah Buckley releases the enchanting ‘Wind Chimes’ EP

Emerging Cork-based artist Sarah Buckley debuted in 2019 with the radio hit ‘You’ve Got Me’, but has come into her own in 2023. The ‘Magic Powers’ EP released earlier this year, which, alongside relentlessly gigging across Ireland and competing in International songwriting competitions, has shown her as a star on the rise.

Now, Sarah returns with the sister EP to ‘Magic Powers’, a three-track project entitled ‘Wind Chimes’. Featuring her previously released singles ‘Always Trouble’ and ‘Puppet Show’, she releases the additional title track to join them. Her gentle alternative folk songwriting is showcased in full on the track. Reserved, heartfelt and ethereal, Sarah’s vocal performance entices you through a mystical soundscape of acoustic and electric instruments, blended for a lush atmosphere. With another strong project under her belt, it’ll be exciting to see where 2024 takes the artists.

Sarah shares, “The wind chimes EP for me is about acknowledging a tough time or relationships gone wrong but by the end of the three tracks being ready to set that tough time aside and move on.”
