Sinead Lohan: No Mermaid
Earlier this week, our own Boyhowdy presented a cover version of No Mermaid here. He did an excellent job of introducing Sinead Lohan, so I will not repeat his comments here. Suffice it to say, her absence from the music scene is sorely felt.
The song itself presents a portrait of tension in a relationship between a risk-taking woman and a play-it-safe man. This tension is represented musically by a setting which evokes the ebb and flow of the tide. Lohan’s use of percussion particularly enhances that effect, and really puts the whole thing over.
