M Stevens & The Ghasts have announced that they will release Go Gracefully, the third single from the album Birds, with a launch party and accompanying video in the Workman's Cellar, Dublin, on April 6th, 2023. Special guest on the night is electro-pop wunderkind Neosupervital.

As a follow up to the first two singles released in late 2022 - Purple Heather and In the Garden - Go Gracefully is a contemplative offering, steeped in the singer songwriter tradition and featuring some of those unexpected lyrical detours for which M Stevens is known. Exploring themes such as Catholicism, alienation and spiritual paralysis, it opens with a simple, finger-picked guitar before working its way towards a grand emotional swell.

Reviews for Birds

“Birds is an exciting debut album that lives up to the experience and pedigree of the talent onboard … (a) blend of wit and thoughtfulness …. wonderfully produced and arranged” (The Goo November 2022)

“Strings, flutes, mandolins and music hall piano are all employed to build deftly appointed musical worlds for Stevens to populate with drunk gods, alien ejaculate and UV lit teeth” (Totally Dublin January 2023)

“ … oscillates between the delicate and driving while keeping the same mordant wit and tongue in its cheek … an earnest yet wry album that is made with such heart that it can’t help but charm” (The Thin Air, November 2022).

Neosupervital (aka Tim O’Donovan) has released two albums to date - ‘Neosupervital’ (2006) and ‘Battery Power’ (2010). The third album, aptly titled ‘3’, arrives later this year. It features all the hallmark. Neosupervital synths, beats, lyrics and harmonies, whilst adding new spacious textures, wonky guitars and some more laid back rhythms.

As well as fronting Neosupervital, Tim has drummed for Irish bands Bell X1, Join Me In The Pines and Keeley, and was one half of electro pop duo Buffalo Woman.

‘Back to What’ (2023 Mix) is the latest NSV single. It's a 3:11 pop tune about getting back to the simpler things like walking, riding on a train, sitting on a step, and other important things of that nature.
