Discovery: Tara Nome Doyle

Tara Nome Doyle is a Norwegian-Irish folk singer songwriter whose ethereal style caught my attention. She’s on the verge of releasing her second album Værmin (Vermin) from which her latest single Snail I is taken.

Much like its namesake animal, Snail I starts slow. Yet, as the track progresses, the “snail” becomes supercharged and it builds to a big, exciting conclusion. Through it all, Tara weaves natural imagery into her lyrics and her voice will cause the arms on the back of your neck to stand on end.

Though new to us, Tara has already been making her name known in the music industry, and has even written for film. If you’ve seen the film Munich – The Edge of War, you’ll have heard one of her compositions. Her new album Værmin is set for release 28 January and you can hear Snail I below.
