Portadown singer-songwriter Naomi Hamilton, aka Jealous Of The Birds has just released some visuals to accompany the track Goji Berry Sunset, taken from her debut album ‘Parma Voilets’, out on May 6th. Describing her music by saying “My only hope is that the songs sound like a real friend talking”, she walks a narrow path between acid and psych folk, but with pop sensibilities, not to mention chorus’.
Goji Berry Sunset shows this off perfectly, build on this gently rocking acoustic guitar figure, and this annoyingly brilliant whistled melodic fragment, with Hamilton laying down her DIY sway, nodding at the likes of Cat Power and even Laura Marling as she goes. Its thoughtful, poignant and beguiling.
Check out the video, shot in a Belfast Church, and reinforces Jealous of the Birds DIY aesthetic.
