Pandemic or not Irish music keeps producing and with no gigs and no cash on the horizon for many of Ireland’s best musicians why not cast your ear over our Fresh Fridays playlist on Spotify, follow the acts that you like and investigate their back catalogue and perhaps even make a purchase from their merch store.

On this week’s round-up of the best new Irish music we have albums from Hilary Woods and Cork’s First Class and Coach as well as new tracks from Bantum, JYellowL, 7th Obi, Wob!, Senu, Lenii, Adam Garrett and Jordan Adetunji.

Mr Irish Jam himself, Swimmers Jackson returns with Bliss, while Rosie Carney, Sylk, Jack Rua, INSIDEAWAVE, Columbia Mills and Sinead O’Brien showcase the diversity in Irish music right now. Otherkin frontman Luke becomes a Blood Donor with his debut solo single and last but not least Mr. John Cummins and Shakalak deliver a dose of what Ireland and the world needs right now, Kindness.
