Welcome to this week’s round-up of new Irish music. And what a week it’s been with another successful Ireland Music Week – Hats off to Angela Dorgan, Liza Geddes and all of the crew for making the best of a less than ideal situation. We look forward to hearing all the good news regarding deals struck filtering out over the next few months, but no doubt we’ll be seeing lots of the 50 acts added to big Spotify playlists in the coming weeks.
This week’s playlist features the brand new EP from Tolü Makay and a pile of collaborations from: Loah & Bantum; Nealo, Molly Sterling, Adam Garrett and Jehnova; Erica Cody & Hare Squead; WetPatch & Froys Yard and Villagers throws down some trumpet on a brand new remix of Wallis Bird’s ‘Communion’.
M(h)aol drop their first new single in 5 years, while James Vincent McMorrow delivers a stripped back version of his latest single ‘I Should Go’. Fresh from a successful IMW performance Fia Moon delivers the latest track from her upcoming mixtape ‘Let This Go’, and Eve Belle continues to morph from folk to full-on pop with ‘Bluff’.
Northern Ireland’s Lucy Gaffney returns with another breezy slice of guitar pop, while Berlin based Lydia Ford lays her pulverised heart onto tape in ‘A Year’ and Jordan Adetunji continues to showcase why he is one of the most versatile artists on the island with ‘Real Ones’.
Meanwhile, Bicep and Synthia Nixon deliver excellent instrumentals, Flynn’s collaboration with Lost Frequencies who is currently the 365th most popular artist in the world on Spotify – no big deal – and Love Harder gets the remix treatment from Honey & Badger.
All this plus new tracks from Sprints, Alex Tierney, Nylophone, Me Auld Flower, Gary O’Neil, Arcwords, Drew Makes Noise, Lewwab, Lauren Ann and Rachel.
As ever, if you want to send us your music fill in the form here. Until next week, stay safe, don’t listen to ageing popstars and wear a mask x.
