Sitch Sessions: Aoife O’Donovan, ‘Magic Hour’

Jan 19, 2016


For her Sitch Session, Aoife O'Donovan takes to a rooftop in Los Angeles to lay out a lilting version of "Magic Hour," the title track from her new record, backed by a chorus of succulents and cacti. This sparse acoustic rendering stands in contrast to the snappy album version, putting a different spin on it all. "In the magic hour, when the moon is low and the sky's the kind of blue that you think you know, but you don't know," O'Donovan sings under a sunny sky that is the kind of blue we all want to know. 

As her new album rolls out, O'Donovan hits the road and the BGS will be right there with her. To win a prize package that includes a signed test-pressing of the 7-inch single for "Magic Hour," two tickets to any of Aoife’s 2016 headlining shows, a magnet pack, + BGS swag, just share the tour flyer on any social media outlet, tagging Aoife, BGS, and #inthemagichour.
