Peter Broderick pays homage to Ireland with The Wind That Shakes The Bramble

19.7  2021


Ireland-based Peter Broderick returns with his new EP The Wind That Shakes The Bramble on September 10. Expanding on last year's Blackberry album, Peter pays homage to Irish poet Robert Dwyer Joyce’s ballad The Wind That Shakes The Barley. It sees Broderick share additional work from the Blackberry sessions, as well as a beautiful two-part rework from Bing & Ruth (4AD) and the 22-minute title track. 

Viewing the blackberry plant as a symbol of resilience, the song is an expansive and meditative ambient odyssey, a balm for the baffling chaos of the current era.

“It weaves itself all through our countryside, playing an important role in holding the soil together, and also makes its way into our cities, proliferating even in such hyper urban environments as London. And while most modern people have lost the ability to identify the wild plants growing around us, the Blackberry remains a commonly foraged plant all around the globe.”
