Excitement is building for the launch of Megan Nic Ruairí’s debut single, out this Friday 10th April.
‘Can’t Trust the Moon’ will be a taste of what’s to come from this experimental West Donegal artist after her year-long solo project.
The song is a powerful exploration of heartache.

While touring Scotland in 2014, Megan wrote the original song as a stream of consciousness poem and sent to a loved one. It wasn’t until 2016 that Megan adapted it into its current guise after the couple’s definitive breakup.
It deals with a romanticized love story and how we cope during the fallout of these relationships—a thread that weaves its way through Megan’s writings, forming a powerful and passionate collection of songs and stories.
‘Can’t Trust the Moon’ discusses how life can be so wonderful through the eyes of the swooning. How under the light of their moon the world seemed so perfect only to be washed away by the light of the morning sun.
‘When the light hit his eyes, how was I meant to know that for the rest of my life, I can’t trust the moon, like I used to, and it’s all because of you.’
This song was the turning point for Megan in realizing her creative integrity and the strength she exuded whilst appreciating her own company, ‘darling that’s hard to know, so I had to let you go.’
Her music is an honest narrative of romanticized love and self-exploration.
Originally from Rann na Feirste, Megan now lives in Dublin. She comes from a musical family, well known for their contribution to the Irish music scene having toured extensively throughout the world. Aside from performing alongside her family, she has appeared on many BBC productions—performing ‘Can’t Trust the Moon’ and has sung on national radio gaining her a vast universal following as a solo artist.
This has prepared Nic Ruairí with the appropriate experience and motivation to immerse herself in her highly-anticipated solo project which she has been working on for the last year.
Can’t Trust the Moon was recorded in Windmill Lane Studios, Dublin. Recorded and mixed by Cian Synnott with help from Daniel de Burca, mastered by Orri Mc Brearty of Attica Audio Recording, Donegal and filmed in Dun Laoghaire by Ryan Hoban with help from Stephen Bishop.
