Dublin based pop/rocker Rachael McCormack has been bouncing around the scene for about four years now, building up a fervent fan-base in her homeland by touring alongside the likes of Mary Byrne and Paddy Casey as well as lighting up the stage at a number of well-known venues and events such as The Workman’s Club, No Tent Required and the illustrious Electric Picnic.

With one critically acclaimed album already under her belt, the proficient singer/songwriter recently returned to the studio to record a brand new compilation called Songs from a Scrapbook, which will arrive online in its entirety later this year. Right now though, we here at Pure M are pleased to present the premiere of the video for its vivacious lead single, “Come Back Home”.

The song itself is introduced through a salvo of sunny riffs and pleasant percussion ahead of the happy harmony of the hypnotically heartfelt first verse. This paves the way to a brilliantly buoyant chorus full of vibrant vocals and invigorating instrumentation at the end of the remarkably radiant opening minute. Another intoxicatingly cheery stanza bridges the gap from here to an endearingly genial breakdown before the whole thing culminates in one last onslaught of enlivening singing and mirthful music.

The result is a wonderfully warm and arresting aggregate of pop and rock, the appeal of which should be wide-reaching. Be sure to scroll down to investigate the video for yourself now. Directed by Aidan Farrelly of Bad Apple Films, it features Fair City star Rebecca Grimes donning Dorothy Gale’s ruby slippers and living it up in the Land of Oz.

All proceeds from “Come Back Home” single will go directly to Irish Society for Autism.
