I saw Orquesta play a deadly DJ set in the Pavilion a couple weeks ago for Floating Points 3. In the interim he’s played Camden Crawl Dublin (at which that photo above was taken) and shared a new song, ‘Qingming’. It’s an instrumental jam that’s heavy on drums, clicks and summery sounds. You can download […]

Dublin three-piece Sounds of System Breakdown are gearing up for the release of their second album Nomad on Friday week. ‘Neon Contrails’ is the second taster we’ve had of it, following on from ‘Mayfly‘. Clocking in at just over four minutes, it’s an irresistible slice of dance-rock with a woah-oh-oh chorus that you won’t be […]

Seriously, where do you start? We got a taste of what not to expect from Simon Bird with the video for ‘All The Houses On My Street Look Exactly The Same’ last week. The artwork for Sport is weird, as you can see. And the album seems to have come from nowhere – Bird mentioned […]

I was reading a preview of the new Premier League season this morning while I pressed play on Echo for the first time. After a couple of EPs going back to 2010, it’s the first full-length for Niamh de Barra, a Dublin-based singer-songwriter. Nine songs long, Echo covers a lot of bases and brings to […]

Hailing from Cork and Laois, Waking Up Sunday make positively gorgeous music. ‘The Glass Bridge’ sways along ever so gently, wooing you with its softly spoken vocals. It’ll make you feel like you’ve died again. The vocals are provided by Briony O’Toole, and the production is the work of Cian Sweeney. They’re both students of […]

The singer and guitarist with Land Lovers, Padraig Cooney, has turned the fuzz up for his new band Skelocrats and their debut EP Whip Crack Away. It doesn’t sound too far removed from what’s gone before, but I just love his voice. Skelocrats also feature Bronwyn from We Are Losers, Michael from Groom and Paddy […]

Sad Soul Circus is 19-year-old Cork-based producer Finn Yowell – add him to the list of amazing electronica artists that have emerged from the city over the past 18 months and that’s one mighty impressive list: REID, Toby Kaar, Replete and Bantum to name just a handful. Yowell was born in New York, moved to […]

This is just such beautiful music. If you’ve been following any Irish music coverage over the past year you’ll have heard of MMOTHS (formerly Moths) AKA Jack Colleran. ‘Heart’ is taken the eletronica artist’s first official EP release – he did only finish his Leaving Certificate last year, after all. ‘Heart’ should also sound familiar […]

Dance duo (more later) Breton have been releasing quality tracks over the past 18 or so months and this week offered five new tracks for free download. The Blanket Rule EP can be downloaded on Facebook by clicking the like button. This year sees the band step things up, making their break for wider acclaim. […]

Get your woolly hats out folks, because Squarehead are feeling so Christmassy they recorded a song for the holidays. It’s a cover to be precise, of Darlene Love’s ‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’. I interviewed Squarehead singer Roy in the summer prior to the release of the three-piece’s debut album, Yeah, Nothing. Asked what was […]
