What If

What If

Monday, 1 March 2021, 9.00am

For Release March 1st. Tipperary, Ireland.
Contemporary folk band Strings & Things are set to release an upbeat, lively new song,
“What If.” The song is the third single off of their upcoming album The Unsolicited Dance.
Opening with a descending banjo part, the song explodes into a driving groove
complete with rhythmic guitars, intricate banjo, and an unshakeable rhythm section. The song
asks a series of questions about the world and ponders on what it would be like if certain
aspects of our history hadn’t come to pass.
Eoin Shelly (percussion & vocals) says, “I wrote these lyrics coming home on a flight
from a concert in Birmingham. Inspiration strikes in the strangest places and being on a plane
I was pondering the concept of flight itself. I started jotting down questions, and wondering if
certain things were different, would we be where we are now? How would the world work?
While introspective, the song has a hopeful tone. It’s like how a child would contemplate the
world, they’ll ask questions, but with genuine wonder and curiosity.”
Eoin brought the lyrics to the band, who came up with melodies and arranged the song
