sombre galway

Sombre is John Callagy, a producer from Galway in his early 20s. He sent me on ‘Good Tidings’ last week and I find myself returning to it almost daily. It probably suffers a little from the clich├ęs of making such music, for example the sound of the waves. Yesterday though, Callagy uploaded ‘Home’, which was grand… until it picks up after two minutes. I really enjoyed the song, which clocks in at well over five minutes. It’ll be interesting to see what he goes after this. He sounds very similar to Cork artist Reid, who I’m looking forward to hearing more from soon, but hopefully Callagy will head in his own direction for future tracks. There’s more on Sombre’s Soundcloud page.
