Musician Rona Mac opens up in ‘Sense’ song

It has almost been precisely a year since songwriter Rona Mac released her poetic EP Shades of Ham, the project that followed her debut album Sheelah. With a strong independent attitude, she has graced listeners with another one of her deep-feeling singles, named ‘Sense’. The track is quickly gaining attention, having been premiered by the American tastemaker Under the Radar as well as the UK’s very own BBC Radio Ulster presenter Eve Blair.

In the song, Rona Mac questions what it means to lose one’s sense of reality. “This next body of work is themed around mental health, and this first track says it most blatantly. ‘Sense’ – what happens when we lose it? How does that feel? How do you hold someone who has lost it? And how long can that go on? When does it end?” She says. 

With this in mind, it is as if she is using music as the medium through which to explore the answers to these existentially challenging questions. The final product is as much an investigation as it is a lamentation, which leads us to conclude: Rona Mac makes music to feel to. And we’re glad she does.
