Nuala Honan returns with a shimmering new single, “I’m Alright”; released on 2nd November, alongside the start of her national support tour with This Is The Kit, her new song creates a hopeful landscape for the listener to drift into a pop-dream.
Fans will find a new favourite in this persuasively all-enveloping track – a song of cacophonous fanfares and twinkling synths, that reveals a series of intimate confessions in the quiet between the messy rollercoaster of love.

Doubt & Reckoning: remixed
‘Doubt & Reckoning: Remixed’ is a complimentary companion piece to Nuala Honan’s dynamic second album, ‘Doubt & Reckoning’. Comprising remixes, reworks and audio collages from a talented line-up of indie artists including Jilk, Cephas Teom, Twin Siblings, Rainbow Slicer Daniel B. Truen, Yumi & The Weather, Hannah Moule (Moulettes), Jonny Mintaka (Soma Soma) and Nuala’s own album studio engineer Island Moves (Nicholas Dover), reflecting the high esteem in which Nuala is held by so many of her musical peers, not to mention the boundless potential of her words, voice and melodies for creative reimagining.
After a year promoting ‘Doubt & Reckoning’ in the bizarre online music industry of 2020, ‘Doubt & Reckoning: Remixed’ is an effort to connect and collaborate in place of touring, to relive and reimagine some of the magic of an artist in dazzling form.
The first few remixes to be revealed have already received strong radio support across BBC 6 Music from Lauren Laverne, Nemone, Stuart Maconie and Tom Robinson as well as plays from BBC Introducing on Radio 1 and ‘In The West’, with props from Radio X tastemaker, John Kennedy.

The video for 'Slow Down' was concieved and directed by Nuala, visually exploring the two intertwined stories within the song: her experience with a loved one and the Irish legend, 'The Children of Lir'. With Nuala as the creative director, Tommy Martin from Bandfilms as the director of photography and Linzy Nanakorn as movement director, it’s playfully collaborative, with further contributions from editor Simon Panrucker and paper swan maker Emma Powell completing the core team.
Much more than “just” a lyric video, the lively stop-motion animation piece was conceived and made by Honan herself while in lockdown, remotely collaborating with her friend, visual/FX artist PJ Wood.
Filled with colourful and characterful paper motifs, painstakingly crafted and photographed, to illuminate the vivid imagery in the song – which explores themes of memories and learned behaviour, particularly tapping into the terror, thrill and sensory overwhelm of a trip to the Great Barrier Reef as a small child.
