This is an exclusive, secret preview of my upcoming EP called Hiraeth Vol.1 which will be available on all streaming platforms on the 10/01/2021.
I decided to share it with you before it sees the light.
Hiraeth is a Welsh word which doesn’t have an English, nor Polish equivalent. It is a word for an incredible homesickness or nostalgia, an earnest longing or desire, a sense of regret. The feeling of longing for a home that never was. A deep and irrational bond felt with a time, era, place or person.
Each songs tells a tale about a different “Hiraeth” – longing for a place to settle, longing for love, acceptance, friendship or understanding.
It was a difficult album to create – working remotely with Daniel Osmęda, my lead guitarist, without going into a studio we managed to produce something which we are both immensely proud of.
We hope you will enjoy it too.
This album is dedicated to our friend Irek Zamęta, who passed tragically at the beginning of December this year being just 35 years old.
Irek, to dla Ciebie…
Moni i Daniel.
