Irish Alternative Artist Freddy Black Releases Captivating New Single "Cloak and Dagger"

Freddy Black, the multi-talented and experimental artist from Dublin, just returned with a mesmerizing new single titled "Cloak and Dagger". Known for his boundary-pushing music and evocative lyrics, Black invites listeners to explore the depths of human experience through his unique sound.

Following his recent single "Drainpipe Diamond", which garnered attention from Hot Press, Near FM, RTE 2XM, and Ragged Cast, Freddy Black continues to impress with his distinctive blend of blues-infused lyrics and a carnival-like atmosphere of piano and slide guitar, all topped off with his signature half-spoken, half-sung vocals. He has performed at renowned venues such as the Button Factory’s Crow Bar Terrace and Smithfield Creatives.

"Cloak and Dagger" is a powerful track that delves into the interplay of grace and danger. It tells the story of a protagonist ensnared by a femme fatale, depicted with poeticism and emotional depth. This single is part of a seven-part song cycle exploring themes of luck, sin, and institutionalized abuse, drawing on the mystical power of the number seven.

Recorded live at Temple Lane Studios with producer Dan Wheatly, "Cloak and Dagger" represents Freddy Black's ability to confront life's harsh truths with unbridled creative expression.
