JOE’s Song Of The Day #566: Eve Belle – ‘Boy From the Blue’
Eve Belle has released her latest single and news of a live show.
Eve Belle is a young singer, songwriter and chronicler of sorrows from deepest Donegal. In 2016, One of her early songs, the aptly-titled, achingly beautiful ‘Too Young To Feel This Old’ came to the attention of Irish independent label Rubyworks.
Around the same time, her evocative cover of Coldplay’s ‘Violet Hill’ found favour with Chris Martin & Co., and was widely shared online.
There's a lot of heartache in her songwriting and as she says, “I try to create emotional portraits of my own experiences through my lyrics. I think the best songs come from the most earnest emotions, so I try to put minimal filters between what I feel and what I say in the song.”
On signing to Rubyworks, Eve worked with London-based producer Fred Cox, best known for his work with Billie Marten and Lion Babe, and Simon Aldred of Cherry Ghost and Birdy fame. The first fruits of their studio labours is her new single ‘Boy From The Blue’.

Eve says of the song: ‘Boy From The Blue’ was inspired by that sense of surreal giddiness that comes with being infatuated with someone new, when the lines between physical things and emotions become a bit blurred and there are symbols everywhere, that we like to read meanings into.”
Drawing on influences as diverse as Julien Baker, Cigarettes After Sex and Conor Oberst, Eve Belle has recently played live in Ireland with Frightened Rabbit, Wyvern Lingo and Rodrigo y Gabriela and enjoyed festival appearances at Electric Picnic, Indiependence and Sea Sessions.
She'll be performing live in Dublin at the Project Arts Centre on 13 April and tickets are on sale now for the measly price of a tenner.
In Eve Belle, it's time to believe.
