Lisa Hannigan talks about 'Passenger'


Between writing her first album – 2008’s ‘Sea Sew’ – and its eagerly-awaited successor, Lisa Hannigan’s life has changed in oh-so-many ways. She penned her first songs in hope rather than the expectation that the wider world might find a use for them; knocked out at rehearsals in a freezing barn in the Irish countryside, the record was produced at a ...

5.0 out of 5 stars A little cracker and the craic... 13 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
I loved Lisa's first album, Sea Sew, but Passenger is much more upbeat and has a bit of humour scattered around as well - it just puts a smile on my face every time I play it. And it's a great disc for driving as the songs have a strange calming influence (Sea Sew had the same effect) - road rage never crosses my mind, no matter how rude or incompetent other drivers appear to be.

My favourite song is Knots as it is good ol' foot-stomping FUN! And check out the video on YouTube too (the one with Lisa in the white dress and the paint...) as this will just add to the fun - absolutely inspired, and done in just one take. Safe Travels (Don't Die) is very, very funny - bound to be a great crowd pleaser when played live! I'd not come across Ray LaMontagne before but he sings a fabulous duet with Lisa on O Sleep - their voices hardly need the backing music at all. Little Bird is a little cracker, too - clever lyrics and beautifully sung.

Could it be improved? Well, not much in my view, but I would have loved to have seen Braille on the album as well - another lovely upbeat song that would have fitted in well with the newer songs. I first came across Braille at the end of the enchanting Neil Jordan film "Ondine" - check it out here: Ondine [DVD] Ondine also features Lille from the Sea Sew album - beautiful!

Enjoy the craic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful cd from Lisa! 17 Oct 2011
By Just Me
Format:Audio CD
It would be hard not to love Lisa Hannigan. Her voice is so soothing that it never fails to quieten the busiest of minds. Passenger is a mixed bag of the sweet, simple styled songs that most instantly loved on Sea Sew cd and more intense tracks, that i can't help but wonder if there was a snow patrol influence to them. Whatever, they are all lush! Well done Lisa for another wonderful cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lisa Hannigan - Travelling a different path 10 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Those expecting a repeat of Lisa Hannigan's 2009 delightful treat "Sea Saw" will find this album on first listen a bit of a puzzle. Ironically very much like her former musical partner Damien Rice, Hannigan managed to produce a debut so deeply adored by its many admirers that it will cast a very large shadow on any of her subsequent output and it is a high benchmark that she has set herself. It is perhaps because of this that Hannigan's has wisely decided to move away in part from an exclusive focus on sprightly heartfelt balladry and the rather derogatory label of plinky plonk rock into something harder and with a much darker hue on this sophomore album. That's not to say that this album will disappoint for there is plenty on here to demand your rapt attention, The key point of this album is that it accurately fits the old football cliché of being a game of two halves with a largely rock orientated first part and a gentle acoustic return journey. Opener "Home" for example starts off sounding like a big bold Coldplay anthem with its pounding piano and familiar chords. Yet when Hannigan's breathy vocals kick in the song becomes a powerful vehicle with lyrics using the image of "melting snow" to carry its central message. It is perhaps "A Sail" the next song up that is the biggest departure on the album seeming to draw inspiration from either the Pixies or P.J. Harvey and starting with a dark sounding bass line. To fair it works well as does the more jazzy "Knots" which spookily echoes the styles on Laura Marling latest and finishes with a excellent crescendo of strings, where her band make a good old fashioned raucous racket.

All well thus far but then some problems creep in during the albums mid section.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerising 24 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD
I disagree with the reviewer who said "singing live, she sounds exacty like the CD" because she sounds so much better live!

I saw her recently supporting Richard Hawley & she puts wonderful feeling into her perfomance & her voice has a pitch & purety that is not quite replicated on any of the recordings I have heard. I purchased this CD in the foyer during the interval, where she was on hand to sign it for me..she seems a lovely person too!

Full of beautiful melodies & clever lyrics, there is not a weak track on this CD, I am so glad it is now in my life. She has a new fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Passenger" is a great follow up to "Sea Sew" 15 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
Lisa Hannigan's debut album "Sea Sew", released back in 2008, was quite a treat with some lovely Irish Folk creations such as "I Don't Know" and "Lille". The sophomore album can be quite tricky for a lot of artists who have acheived immediate success with their first offering but with "Passenger", Lisa manages to retain the subtle beauty of "Sea Sew" whilst adding a couple of twists.

The opener "Home" has a much heavier Rock influence than the other songs and is quite a powerful and confident start to the album. It is followed by the highlight of the album "A Sail", a beautiful and delicate Folk influenced track with a strong melody and an addictive bassline. "Knots" is nearly as good with some great string arrangements and "What'll I Do" is a fun song with a very addictive chorus. The duet with Ray LaMontagne "O Sleep" is very sleepy, but quite magical. "Paper House" is a very sweet song with beautiful soft vocals and flowing arrangements. The acoustic guitar led "Little Bird" is gentle and peaceful and it is followed by the Country music influenced title track "Passenger", which has a very infectious chorus and is my second favorite composition. "Safe Travels" has some lovely lyrics and is another pleasantly arranged Folk song. The final track "Nowhere To Go" ends the album on a beautiful and gentle note.

Lisa Hannigan does not move mountains on "Passenger", but there some very emotionally intense moments, some beautifully written melodies and some cleverly thought out lyrics. "Passenger" is a treat to the ears and a must buy album for the fans of her other solo work.

I love it. Lisa Hannigan has a way of presenting songs that make you feel she is confiding in you. At times it feels very personal, delicate and vulnerable. Read more
