‘(It’s a Rare Thing) To Daydream)’ by Seamus O’Muineachain | New Album, ‘Liminality’

Exclusive video premiere of ‘(It’s a Rare Thing) To Daydream’ by Seamus O’Muineachain, taken from his upcoming album, ‘Liminality,’ scheduled for release on July 7, 2024, via Ghost Home Recordings.


Embark on a sonic journey as Seamus O’Muineachain, a nomadic Irish composer and producer, delves into reflections on liminal spaces drawn from experiences across Georgia, Thailand, and Ireland. From bustling airport terminals to unfamiliar cityscapes, his latest album, “Liminality,” captures moments of intimacy and solace amidst a backdrop of constant change and transition.

Featuring a diverse tracklist including the enchanting opener ‘Here,’ the dreamy ‘(It’s a Rare Thing) To Daydream,’ and the evocative ‘Rain on Samhain,’ each composition offers a glimpse into O’Muineachain’s captivating sonic universe.

‘(It’s a Rare Thing) To Daydream’ is an ambient instrumental track from O’Muineachain’s 7th album, ‘Liminality.’ The brief yet profound song, featuring bass guitar, piano, violincello, and synth, embodies O’Muineachain’s signature style of rudimentary composition. Exploring the theme of mental disengagement necessary for individual evolution, the title reflects our growing reluctance to let our minds wander.

Filmed by Phannarat Sukkarnka in Erris, County Mayo, and Athlone, County Westmeath, Ireland, the accompanying video features O’Muineachain braving stormy weather, symbolizing the album’s theme of liminality. The visual narrative unfolds with O’Muineachain seemingly locked out of a house, venturing to the shore, and encountering a young person feeding birds by a river. As O’Muineachain’s journey reverses, he re-enters the house, interspersed with rural visuals captured from a moving vehicle, further echoing the album’s exploration of transitional spaces.

Hailing from Belmullet, Ireland, O’Muineachain is celebrated for his ability to craft mesmerizing ambient and minimal compositions using a blend of piano, synthesizers, and guitars.
