Subscribe to TPOE’s New Irish Music playlist on Spotify It’s a jammers week of new releases – just as well cos I’m off to Barcelona and Primavera next week. I’m spending an inordinate amount of time trying to decide between Solange and Broken Social Scene, embroiled in a direct clash on Thursday. It’s a very […]

Subscribe to TPOE’s New Irish Music playlist on Spotify It’s a relatively quiet week for new Irish releases, maybe just as well because all I really want to do is listen to New Jackson‘s debut album. The roundup of best new Irish music this week also includes Loah – debut EP out next month – […]

Powered by McMuffins, Dublin duo Bad Sea return with second single ‘Tell Me (What I Mean)’. I loved their debut single, released last September – while that reminded me of indie-pop duo Tennis, the 3.31-minute ‘Tell Me (What I Mean)’ is powered by Angel Olsen. It’s a confident slice of pop music that contrasts with […]
