about

Revolve is a haunting introduction to the talents of young Irish musician Adam Geraghty. With diverse influences from Rory Gallagher to Neil Young to the National, Geraghty’s solo project demands attention. Intimate and introspective, Revolve captures Geraghty’s search for identity as a young musician in a small Irish town suffering from recession. A dark urban landscape lurks beneath each song, as Geraghty explores the tension between his rural Irish home and the vitality of the cities that lure him away. This tension is reinforced by Geraghty’s vocals where multiple voices compete, echo and contradict; and by songs that continually build, twist and crash. The result is a unique, emotional and confident collection that continues to echo long after the music has stopped.

Revolve was written, recorded, and produced at Geraghty’s home in the Irish midlands. All vocals and instruments by Adam Geraghty.

Track Name: Oval Mirror
Dressed in my nightgown I'm holding my knife in the dark
Rest by the window my window looks out to the park
Red lights are on me no signposts tell me where to go
Sirens ring loudly and signal a sign i don't know

Rain falls outside
I hear my life call in the rain
Rain falls outside
I feel myself fall in the rain

An oval mirror reflects the light and brings my picture back in black and white
An oval mirror reflects the light and brings my picture back in black and white
An oval mirror reflects the light and shows me the difference of wrong and right
Of wrong and right
Of wrong and right
Of wrong and right

So my head goes
So my head goes

Engines running in a thousand gears
in reverse
Shine a street light on my face and show my fears
I fear the most

Rain falls outside
I hear my life call in the rain
Rain falls outside
I feel myself fall in the rain

An oval mirror reflects the light and brings my picture back in black and white
An oval mirror reflects the light and brings my picture back in black and white
An oval mirror reflects the light and shows me the difference of wrong and right
Of wrong and right
Of wrong and right
Of wrong and right
Track Name: Watch it Grow
You can paint the water
Crashing on the land
Would you leave your daughter
Without feet to stand
You cured a million destined
To go inside and rest in peace

Watch it grow
Watch it grow

Close the door behind you
And the curtains too
Sun will leave you blind soon
Never mind the view

Close the door behind you
And the curtains too
Sun will leave you blind soon
Never mind the view

They say this place is all being lost

Left without a hope
When you find a steeping slope
Climb out with a rope
And seal your envelope

Watch it grow
Watch it grow

Close the door behind you
And the curtains too
Sun will leave you blind soon
Never mind the view

Close the door behind you
And the curtains too
Sun will leave you blind soon
Never mind the view

What do you want me to be

Hold the phone for the caller
Buy some time with a tune
Hold the phone for the caller
Buy some time with a tune

Find a clue

Take your hand from off of your face
Show a smile
Track Name: Sticks and Mud
I wonder if its gone
Why does it take so long why does it take so long
A bird can sing a song
But for it to belong he must sing it loud


It's just sticks and mud so don't cry about it
It's all dead and gone so don fight about it
Whatever's done is done so don't lie to me now

I feel the cold air on my skin
I think its creeping in i think its creeping in
A long night brings a day to an end i did not intend to condescend

From treble highs to deep bass lows
My beating heart your gentle soul
A dying whisper from a fallen tree
A swollen blister thats left on me
Just sticks and mud is what you get
When you knock on wood and the lose the bet

It's just sticks and mud so don't cry about it
It's all dead and gone so don fight about it
Whatever's done is done so don't lie to me now

How do I stop these satellites from falling
Track Name: Silence to the Flames
So my melancholy
Floats like water in the sea
As ashes roam
All alone
Seem to find there way to me

Through the trees I run
Trying to hide away from everyone
Im lost and weak
The things i seek
Cannot be done

Go and raise the smoke the smoke that sparks a fire
Go and take the hope the hope that I desire

Wake up with my head on the side of my bed
Seems that its here but i guess its there
Trees blow and i know it must be in my head
Gather my things and go and see my friend

Light a fire to acquire my body heat
My hands are shaking
I can't sleep
With elastic bands tied around my feet
Hold up my hands and admit defeat

Find my things on the swings where they burned them down
My clothes are heavy i think that i might drown
