Portland-based indie-folk quartet, SnugHouse, have released their first radio single “Irie.” The song presents SnugHouse at their best, with a lively americana arrangement, rich harmonies, and poignant lyrics. Written by Alex Millan and arranged by Nikhil Dasgupta, “Irie” is a song for a changing world. The lyrics reflect on the time Alex spent nannying a colleague’s daughter.
“I spent my days following the whims of a curious toddler. My insecurities and anxieties about the world quickly became superficial,” she says. The song rapidly became an audience favorite at shows, and the band is excited to share it with the broader public. The single is a follow-up to SnugHouse’s debut, self-titled EP, an honest reflection of their live performances: a set of five sparse arrangements, painted in a pallet of muted colors, that holds a respect for songwriting above all else.
