George Fitzgerald and SOAK join forces on ‘Rainbows and Dreams’

The pair have combined for a celestial new cut that plays out like the soundtrack to the last dance of the summer.

The most arresting collaborations often pull one out artist out of their own world into another. On George Fitzgerald’s ‘Rainbows and Dreams’, Derry’s SOAK supplies swaps tender guitar strings for glistening soundscapes and expansive production that stretches to welcome their transient vocals.

The track comes ahead of George Fitzgerald’s forthcoming album Stellar Drifting and

On the track, George explains, “The track is a real collage of different sessions. I was hanging out one day with a mutual friend of mine and SOAK, Joel Pott, and he played me a vocal that they had worked on. I thought it was beautiful, so I asked if I could try and reinterpret it somehow. In my head, I knew it would work perfectly with an instrumental that I’d been writing, which was an amalgamation of lots of improvised synth jams. Those two things came together perfectly over a couple of lovely days in the studio”  

Additionally, SOAK says, “I worked on some songs with Joel Pott (legend) a couple of years back, then recently enough this surprise song just arrived in my inbox out of the blue. It was an unreal surprise and not at all the life I’d expected those stems to have. I love what George has made out of them and I can’t wait to see this song out in the wild”.
