FĒNIX is the solo project of Carlow multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer Darragh O’Connor. Describing his sound as “big beats and sexy synths”, FĒNIX leans heavily on Synthwave and 80s vibes to create melody-driven alt-pop.
The release of his debut single ‘Alive’ is something of a new beginning for FĒNIX, as he explains:
"I just decided to finally back myself and start putting my own music out there. I guess that’s where the name FĒNIX (phoenix) comes from…. the idea of obtaining new life by rising from the ashes of a former self. With that in mind, I thought ALIVE was a natural first track for this project."
ALIVE was completed with friend and gold-certified producer Ross Fortune (Ed Sheeran, Burna Boy, A$AP Rocky, Ellie Goulding, Zara Larsson) at the helm, and is released on Aztec Records on 27th October.
