A. Smyth is Dublin born Singer/Songwriter Aaron Smyth. Mixing Dream-folk with Indie Rock heart, his songs sit somewhere between Bruce Springsteen, War on Drugs and Big Thief.
With his debut record coming in '19 he released his first single "Fever" in January.
Smyth explains “Fever is a song about never giving up on someone you hold dear, or something you believe in. What I believe in is hope, and the human spirit. They're things that can never be destroyed. In today's weird and uncertain times, thinking of that is a huge source of comfort for me.
This song is a guide for our darkest moments, a song that says even if the world feels like it's closing in and the odds seem stacked against us - we'll persevere. And the light will always break-through”.
