Eoin Dolan – ‘The Most Important Thing Is Peace Within Yourself’

The Most Important Thing Is Peace Within Yourself is the sixth full-length from Eoin Dolan, a singer/songwriter based in Galway, Ireland. An affecting blend of folk and harmonious pop radiates across the release, which boasts an abundance of quality songwriting — from the tranquil, nature-set folk lushness of “Circle of Your Song” to the hypnotic, synth-touched mesmerizing of the finale “The Cave.” The album presents an intoxicating array songwriting that balances personal immersion with serene folk and psych-pop songcraft.

Calming organs and introspective vocals — reflecting a steady rainfall — compel on the opening “Don’t Ever Be An Architect of Misery.” A more expansive reassurance enamors on the subsequent “Everything Will Go Away In Time,” where the title-touting refrain engages amidst warming vocal layers; the track is enjoyably reflective of overcoming personal tumult, centering around the album’s focus as a whole. “The album is a celebration of resilience and an appreciation of the light and shade we all experience as we go through life,” Dolan explains.

“Don’t Ever Be An Architect of Misery” and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
