jetsetter promo

Clocking in at little over two minutes, the new single from Dublin four-piece Jet Setter doesn’t overstay its welcome. A super surf-pop song, it finds Ross Hamer in a passive, indecisive mood. “First time I didn’t know what to do, I just sat there stupid…”. He still doesn’t know what to do second time round. […]

girl band

On the closest thing we get to a chorus on Girl Band‘s new single ‘De Bom Bom’, premiered on Thursday morning by Noisey Music (how apt), ‘singer’ Dara Kiely says that he “tried to get it up – can’t get it up!” It’s screamed over what sounds more like a chainsaw trying to ride a […]

girl band lawman

Girl Band have been off the radar for a couple of months, re-emerging today with the six-minute-plus ‘Lawman’.

Following the release of a new track on Monday, today brings the premiere of the new Girl Band EP. The Dublin band have only released a single to date – the excellent In My Head – but if you’ve seen them live over the last year you’ll notice a couple of tracks on France 98. […]

Hired Hands hail from Dublin and release their debut album tomorrow. It’s called My Heart Hung and it’s out on Any Other City records, which has a pretty good hit rate. And their quality control is rather excellent too (James runs the label and is in Villagers. Their first EP came out on Any Other […]
