Review: Marc Rigney-Exit

-PAXP-deijECurrently based in Derry/Londonderry, local singer songwriter Marc Rigney has been making his mark over the last few years. Having built up quite an extensive following and dedicated fan base Marc has seen his popularity surge throughout the past few months. Releasing his much anticipated first single ‘Exit’, from his forthcoming E.P ‘Daedalus’, fans were finally able to hear what the singer-songwriter has been working on. Recording his E.P at the famed Attica studios in Letterkenny, the space is known for their exceptional acoustic sound which is evident from the track.

Launching his single on the 24th of March, ‘Exit’ received exclusive airplay on Stephen McCauley’s show Electric Mainline. The song begins with a beautifully gentle intro before building into an intense and passionate chorus. This subtly atmospheric song is evocative with Marc’s fervent vocals permeating throughout. Weaving emotion through his lyrics we are taken on a journey with the song finally reaching a powerful conclusion. With Marc’s signature style of fast and folky picking his dexterous flair for playing the guitar is clearly highlighted throughout the track. Moving through the song with raucous and husky tones to more light clean singing helps to show Marc’s multifaceted vocal ability.

Playing the Society Sessions in Belfast’s ‘The Empire’ earlier this week, the night showcases the best of local singer-songwriters.  Having been featured on the extremely popular Music Crowns page as well as Roadie T.V, Marc has been extremely successful in building an audience though his videos. With many things lined up for the summer, Marc certainly has a busy few months ahead of him. If his first single ‘Exit’ is anything to go by, then I can be sure that the full E.P will be just as exceptional when it is released.

Exit is available via spotify and Itunes
