Irish Singer-Songwriter Cormac Looby Releases Bittersweet Track "Angel, Baby"

Meet Cormac Looby, the talented Irish singer-songwriter whose new single, "Angel, Baby" is an exploration of life's complexities. The track is a soul-stirring narrative woven from threads of nostalgia, candid reflections, and bittersweet melodies.

Drawing inspiration from luminaries like Mitski, Phoebe Bridgers, and Sam Fender, Cormac's music possesses a rare depth that resonates with listeners. With accolades from RTE Radio 1 Recommends, Hot Press, BBC Introducing, and IMRO under his belt, Cormac Looby has already carved a niche for himself in the competitive music scene. His debut single, "I Don't Need Your Love", garnered over 20,000 streams and caught the attention of industry tastemakers, setting the stage for a meteoric rise.

As Cormac prepares to unleash his debut album, 'A Perpetual State of Irony', upon the world, "Angel, Baby" serves as a beautiful prelude - a glimpse into the soul of an artist unafraid to confront life's most profound truths. The song delves into themes of grief and anxiety, inspired by Cormac's personal experiences grappling with loss and longing. As he was being born, a relative of his was battling cancer and this served as the inspiration behind the song.

"She affectionately referred to me as her "baby angel," sent to save her. The track grapples with the painful realization of my inability to alleviate her suffering. This experience causes me to reflect on my own internal struggles with mental health issues and the profound sense of helplessness that accompanies them. Through the song, I navigate the complex emotions of longing, loss, and the profound desire for salvation." - Cormac Looby
