Tara Nome Doyle

SONG PICK: Tara Nome Doyle – Snail I

If you look at the song titles of the new album “Værmin” by Berlin-based, Irish-Norwegian singer/songwriter Tara Nome Doyle, they indeed almost all refer to vermin. Except for the crow, which is curiously a predator of all the other animals on the list. The album will be out on January[…]

She shares about the song: ‘There’s a fire in your mind[…]
