It’s been this way with Regan, give or take the odd detour into busier/band territory, since his 2006 album debut The End Of History. As it happens, Regan hears a link in Cala’s tone and setting to that first record. Both albums were written at Regan’s home in Bray, on Dublin’s coastal outskirts, which might partly explain Cala’s recurring imagery: stars, moon, ocean, sun... “The album does have fundamentally elemental, visual components,” he agrees. “I wouldn’t mind knowing why! It’s a mystery to me, how songs evolve. Thankfully, they do. But I’ve never got anywhere when I’ve tried to work it out.” Yet, as Regan concedes, “the place you’re from continues to resonate.”

Over the course of five sublime albums (Cala is his sixth), the man who has been nominated for Mercury, Choice, Meteor Ireland and Shortlist awards, sampled by Bon Iver, tattooed on actor Rhys Ifans’ arm (the lyric "Be good or be gone"), and made an honorary member of the Trinity College Literary Society knows that rewards and recognition don’t come close to what truly matters. “I’m just so lucky to play music,” Regan says.
