County Galway

Daithi. A fiddle-playing, house music-making, loopstation-tweaking, button-pushing, hair-flicking bundle of energy.

You might recognise him from his brushes with TV talent shows (TG4’s The All-Ireland Talent Show). Or his appearances the length and breadth of Ireland (to crammed festival tents, or supporting the likes of DJ Shadow, Santigold, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, De La Soul and Todd Terje). Or you might have heard some of his studio excursions with various members of the country’s close-knit underground community (Elaine Mai, Liza Flume, Monto, the Breaking Bread collective). But it’s unlikely you would be expecting ‘Chameleon Life’. The new single is a result of unlikely coincidences and chance encounters. A series of studio sessions with like-minded producer and pal Ian Ring (Young Wonder) followed by another friend’s trip to an Icelandic festival, which led to a meeting with Raye, an Irish singer based in London. The result is ‘Chameleon Life’, the new single – a direct blast of electronic pop with its hands raised high to the summer sun.

"I don’t think I’ve ever went to post a song before and thought to myself “this song should be number one EVERYWHERE” before but that’s how I feel about Daithí’s new single ‘Chameleon Life’ and it feels like the kind of song that could well do just that." - Nialler9

"Chameleon Life has a sophistication that sets it apart from the tsunami of identikit EDM bangers that are out there, riding a wave of euphoria that barely lets up throughout its three and a half minutes." - The Guardian
