The dark and atmospheric video to Ciarán's new solo release, recorded and filmed over two weeks from December into January 2021, at the height of a third lockdown. In the rich tradition of protest folk, 'LANDFALL' is a song which explores one man's search for belonging.
The tune that follows it, 'MARCH OF THE DISPOSSESSED' , is a call to arms in the struggle for a place to call home.
