Alt folk: Dowry shares new track ‘Numb’


‘Numb’ is the first release of a handful of new songs Dowry has been working on in the studio with producer and friend Stephen Tiernan (Participant).

Dublin multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, composer, and graphic designer Dowry (aka Éna Brennan) is a veritable Renaissance woman. Her latest musical offering is the delicate new acoustic track ‘Numb’. Inspired by the gothic folk of the likes of Chelsea Wolfe and a swim in the Irish Sea, the song is a mournful and beautiful one that combines gentle acoustic, strings, piano, and the exploratory vocals of Dowry herself. It is immediately arresting through its strong sense of melody melded with its strong sense of experimentation. Fall in love with it below.
