"Brilliant stuff. Sive is a real find.” - Hot Press

Ahead of the release of her self-titled EP, alt-folk songstress Sive - aka Sadhbh O’Sullivan - prepares to enchant listeners with her forthcoming single Do It All The Time, out on 15th March 2019 via Veta Records.

The single addresses the emotive subject of how difficult it can be to speak out or to bare your weaknesses. It manages to capture the frustrations that can arise when you lie about your feelings by reflecting its poignant lyricism in its intricate musicality, creating a sound that is both atmospheric and whimsical. Sive’s silk smooth vocal soars effortlessly throughout, sounding akin to the likes of Feist or Laura Marling.

Growing up, Sive was obsessed with time signatures, unusual chord progressions and the melodies that she’d hear in world music. She has since continued to hone her sound, playing an array of instruments and sharing stages with the likes of Lisa Hannigan, Cathy Davey, Mick Flannery, Christy Moore and Gemma Hayes along the way. Her critically acclaimed previous singles have received praise from the likes of Nialler9, Hot Press, Thank Folk For That and For Folk’s Sake to name a few. With Do It All The Time, Sive hopes to mesmerise and fascinate with her idiosyncratic blend of folk.

Do It All The Time, the third single to be taken from Sive’s upcoming EP, is out on 15th March 2019 via Veta Records.
