oday, Kieran O'Reilly and Ragga Ragnars release their debut single 'Broken Wings'. Ragnars and O'Reilly met during the filming of VIKINGS, where they became good friends. In late 2019 the pair decided to write music together, and began crafting their sound over the subsequent months.
'Broken Wings' is a delicate track, written by both O'Reilly and Ragnars, and produced by Kieran O'Reilly and Martin Quinn. The music video for the single was shot on location in Iceland, directed by Ragnars' brother Jonni Ragnarsson.
Hot Press reviewed the album in July 2019. Heres an excerpt of the review: “Telling tales of friendship, family, death, love, mental health struggles and rebirth, there’s much to love on this self-described soundtrack to the singer’s new life. ‘Run’ is a grandiose and gorgeous listen; ‘Porcelain’ is a soaring, stadium-ready slab of synth-y alt pop; and ‘Team’ harks back to his time as ringmaster for Empire Circus. Best of the lot is ‘The Dark Chromatic’: clocking in at nearly eight minutes, and built around a riff reminiscent of ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’, this marvellous labyrinth is worth the price of admission alone.”
