Metaphorest is the mythical moniker of singer/songwriter Sarah Daly and the umbrella under which she makes music (and writings).
Metaphorest is an Irish lady, currently residing in Scotland, who plays guitar and sings about things like capitalism and cupcakes.
Her influences include Kate Bush, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, Joanna Newsom and the infinite mystery that is life.
Metaphorest is the possessor of one of the most beautiful voices I have heard in a long long time. She also has an amazing knack at picking beautiful videos to illustrate her wonderful music.
And what music!!! Some of it is just too beautiful for words.
So kick back and enjoy the beauty of Sarah Daly aka Metaphorest.
Clocks Back Original song 'Clocks Back' by Metaphorest produced by and with instrumentation from Yousef Khalil
Video edited by Lawrie Brewster using footage from the film 'Aetas' by Shawn Nelson.
Wanderer Animated video for the track 'Wanderer' by Metaphorest with orchestration and arrangement by composer Yousef Khalil
Visuals produced by the uber-talented Maria Ivanova.
Weapon New video by Lawrie Brewster for Metaphorest's equally new track 'Weapon'- a hardhitting, dark, synthy dirge. The song was born out of a drum beat by Ben Wiley on HitRECord.org and produced by Robert J. Mills a.k.a Robo_J, Sarah's regular collaborator and friend.
Apocalyptic Love Song A video by Lawrie Brewster for Metaphorest's Apocalyptic Love Song - a track about the durability of love against all the odds which also features in the film White Out. The video uses public domain footage invoking the feeling of past and imminent wars and disasters.
Empire Empire is an experimental song built out of a reversal from a French lullaby I wrote called 'Le Petit Soldat.' It explores the suffering of children forced to endure the consequences of war, our supposed justifications for fighting and man's inhumanity to man.
Finally today a beautiful Kate Bush cover.
Babooshka Me, Metaphorest's upbeat, barebones acoustic cover of Babooshka from the album Never for Ever by Kate Bush, who just happens to be one of my fave artists of all time.
And I know you want more, so give a listen to her album right here.
