Even though you may not recognise the words you will know the air. ‘Song To The Siren’ was originally recorded by Tim Buckley, was masterfully reworked by This Mortal Coil a decade later and now here is an interpretation from one of Ireland’s most overlooked singers Nina Hynes. Nina has been somewhat overshadowed by Gemma Hayes which is a shame because she has a stronger set of songs in her locker. With a new album called ‘Really Really Do’ on the way there is still time for Hynes and her numerous Husbands to make a bigger impression. ‘Amhran Na Sireana’ is a big test but she captures the mystique of the music superbly. Allied to this is the magic of the Gaeilge that flows so naturally in time with the sparse and affecting instrumentation. Who said French was the language of love? KD
