You may well still be knackered from Electric Picnic last weekend but there’s no rest for Irish musician. This week’s round-up of the best new Irish music features Daithí’s brilliant new album ‘I’m Here Now’ and the return of one of Ireland’s most successful exports but somehow underappreciated at home artists Eden with their 5th album ICYMI. There’s also debut EPs from Jackie Beverley and shoegaze hotshot Cruel Sister.
Orla Gartland has shared the deluxe version of her debut album ‘Woman On The Internet’ featuring the SASAMI remix of ‘Over Your Head’. Following recent single ‘Fun’, Biig Piig continues to have an impressive 2022 with her latest release ‘Kerosene’ hopefully we’ll hear more from her ahead of her show in The Sound House this November.
The Narolane crew (Denise Chaila, Muli, God Knows) are back with ‘Rent Free’ featuring guitar from Bantum. Gavin James has hooked up with Dutch DJ Sam Feldt – who has one of those fancy blue ribbons on his Spotify profile – for ‘Better’. Fresh from drawing one of the biggest crowds at Electric Picnic, The Coronas are back with another slow-burning radio friendly affair ‘If You Let Me’ and Somebody’s Child return with their first single of 2022 ‘Broken Record’.
Aoife Nessa Frances previews her forthcoming second album with ‘This Still Life’ and Grave Goods continue to impress following their standout performance at We’ve Only Just Begun festival with their latest single ‘Die’ from their debut album ‘TUESDAY. NOTHING EXISTS’, which was released today.
All This plus new releases from John Gibbons, April, Scattered Ashes, Ciaran Lavery, Conor Furlong, Wild Love, Laytha, Kingfishr, Padraig Jack, Outsider YP, Kid V, Rezo, Eve Whelan, BArefoot Gypsies, Bright Falls, Weston Lonely, Lea Heart, Tara Nome Doyle, Beats Bakery and Jamie Toomey sounds more than a little like Neil Hannon on his latest single ‘Every Ocean’.
