With another Friday comes a fresh new batch of Irish releases, including the return of one of the country’s premier songwriters Ronan Kealy AKA Junior Brother with his latest single ‘The Men Who Eat Ringforts’, a track he describes as “a twitch of frustration, spat into modernity’s hollow wheel before it clears the way. Sacred things unseen to the suits are still there for them willing to look.” 

Elsewhere, Thumper’s Oisín Leahy Furlong returns to his solo moniker Anamoe Drive for ‘Out Like A Light’, Dublin-raised, London-based alternative artist SPIDER breaks new ground with ‘straight out of the oven !’ which is accompanied by news of a forthcoming project, an object of desire, which is due out next year. Belfast’s Chalk announced their signing to Nice Swan Records with ‘The Gate’ which they discussed with us earlier this week.

Dublin’s The Psych’s dropped their latest single and video ‘Sweet Tooh Outlaw’, Tiz McNamara is ‘Ready For Love’, Will Troy wants to ‘Tell You More’, Lemonade Shoelace go psych-pop with ‘Soul Syndrome’ and Annika Kilkenny continues to raise the bar on ‘Taken Out By The Wind’.

And if that’s not enough there’s new tracks from the likes of Uly, Picture This, Le Boom, ARXX, Jeorge II, ericakate, Ciaran Lavery, Anna Leah, DYVR, Alex Konchar, Jeff Russo & Lisa Hannigan, James McVey, Molly O’Mahony, James Shannon, Laura Elizabeth Hughes and Four Faces
