FĒNIX is the solo project of Carlow (Ireland) multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer Darragh O’Connor. Describing his sound as “big beats and sexy synths”, FĒNIX leans heavily on Synthwave and 80's vibes to create melody-driven alt-pop.

FĒNIX 3rd single DRIFTING tells the story of the
breakdown of a relationship, and the struggle of one party to accept and come to terms with the reality of the situation.

"Drifting is a tale of 2 people where one has outgrown the relationship and is ready to move on, and the other hasn't quite accepted the situation yet and is clinging on in vain. Weirdly, it is loosely based on and inspired by Niamh and Paul in Fair City!"

DRIFTING was completed with friend and gold-certified producer Ross Fortune (Ed Sheeran, Burna Boy, A$AP Rocky, Ellie Goulding, Zara Larsson) at the helm, and is released on Youngblood Music on 27th March.
