Lemonade Marinade Release 3rd Single

 Lemonade Marinade are back with their third single during these uncertain times for the Irish mental health charity Pieta. Following on from their acclaimed singles ‘Good to See (That Some Things Still Shine So Bright)’ and ‘Venus and Me’, the Irish lockdown band release the joyeous indie pop song ‘Brilliant’ on Friday November 6th, 2020.

All the songs relate lyrically to the chosen charity and relay a message of encouragement and hope, with the risk of suicide spiralling since covid (especially in young men). ‘Brilliant’ offers lyrically an alternative to the darkness they feel with love and a wonderful future within their grasp.

With this new single Lemonade Marinade hope in some small way to help raise funds and ensure Pieta can continue their vital work.

Brilliant’ was written by songwriter and producer David Dee Moore. Vocals on this track come from legendary Nashville singer and Co.Down based Cathryn Craig (Righteous Brothers, Chet Atkins) 

The slick accompaniment comes from a band handpicked by David Dee Moore with years of musical experience and creativity. These include Nick Scott (Gilbert O’Sullivan, Mary Black) on bass, Colin and Janet Henry (Nancy Griffiths, Charlie McGettigan) on dobro and vocals respectively, Fintan Hanley(Vickers Vimy) on mandolin, Brian McAteer(Phil Coulter, Alisdair Frazer) on strings,  Brian Willoughby (Strawbs, Mary Hopkin) on nylon guitar and project producer, arranger David Dee Moore (Liam Clancy, Juliet Turner, Brian Kennedy) on guitars and keyboards

The track was mixed by Grammy nominees Chris O’Brien and Graham Murphy at The Production Suite Dublin and mastered by Richard Dowling at Wav Mastering Limerick.

lyrics

Venus and Me 

When you’ve got time, time to burn 
listening to the world 
Listen to it’s song 
Can you forgive, forgiveness is everything 
Heal it’s broken wing 
Help it fly again 

When you’ve got love 
so much love to give 
Reaching out to touch 
It doesn’t seem too much 
It gives so much peace 
With nothing in your wake 
A cold and honest truth 
We’ve so much more to lose 

High above the moon as we watch the night unfurl 
Lovely Venus shines on the lonely boys and girls 
She’s a sapphire, she’s a diamond,  she’s a pearl 

Feel the warmth 
And the still of the night 
The stars all shining bright 
and lovely Venus and me 

Theres no sound, no talk, no sermons heard 
no spiel, no song, no mockingbird 
No speech, no voices anywhere in the world  
Theres no sound, no talk, no sermons heard 
no spiel, no song, no mockingbird 
No speech, no voices anywhere in the world

Reviews

‘Leave Your Light On from David Dee Moore with Vickers Vimy is a dynamic, driving song. The addition of Mayo/Carlow band Vickers Vimy adds a great dimension to the track, ramping up the drama and harmony. I feel a lot of airplay coming on.’ Mary Green (Greenshine)
