An uplifting, flawless follow-up
Fionn Regan - The Shadow Of An Empire

Born of difficult times, following his split from Lost Highway Records and a retreat to a disused factory in Ireland for writing sessions, ‘The Shadow Of An Empire’ is a fighting comeback from Fionn Regan.

Taking the purist approach of composing the words in isolation, with Fionn finding his old Olympia typewriter’s rhythms also informing the phrasing of the material. Thankfully though, this isn’t a ‘listen to the words’ effort with rudimentary attention paid to the music.

It’s a fully realised, sprightly rocking album that proves that sometimes musicians are best left alone to do what they do best . An uplifting, flawless follow-up.
