Clonakilty-bred musician Míde Houlihan has released Idle Words, a co-write with Mick Flannery. Capturing the artist’s confidence with such simplicity, the Folk song is a beauty.
The co-write came about during lockdown through the IASCA (Irish Association of Songwriters, Composers, and Authors) songwriting initiative, with the track being made over video call.
Speaking on the track, the singer-songwriter said: “Idle Words is about taking someone for granted. Someone who’s not around anymore. You know when someone is in your life every day, and you start getting annoyed by little things they might say or do; it’s about wishing you could have those things back. What you once considered ‘Idle Words’, you’d give anything to hear again.”
