Not only this new remix of Moments Passed by Mike Dean a beautifully haunting yet atmospherically electrifying affair, but it also serves to remind us how excited we are that Dermot Kennedy will be making his way out to SXSW next month. The Irish singer songwriter totally floored us a few months ago with his raw storytelling and sensational vocals on the original. Re-visit our feature of the track, here, where we compared his sound to a combination of Rag’N’Bone Man, Ben Howard, and Maverick Sabre. Houston producer Mike Dean’s remix maintains the original’s haunting beauty but adds a shadowy spaciousness to the track. You can also stream or purchase the remix, here. Alongside his SXSW appearance, Dermot Kennedy is also playing a string of shows in the U.S. this March, all of which have been sold out, including his stop in San Francisco at the Independent.

If you’re unfamiliar with Irish singer songwriter Dermot Kennedy, prepare to be stunned by his sensational vocals and raw storytelling as we dive into the music video for his latest single, Moments Passed. The tour de force alt single has been creating a huge buzz since its release a couple months ago. Moments Passed’s soulful inflection and gritty delivery are reminiscent of Rag’N’Bone Man and Maverick Sabre, with some of the dynamic intensity and emotive power of Ben Howard. Its visuals, directed by Nabil Elderkin (Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean, Kanye West) brings to life the song’s impassioned symbolism framed by Dermot’s heart wrenching lyrics. The short is described as a “tale of long lost love weaving between the past and present…” You can grab the single, here.
