On this week’s round-up of new Irish music we bring you the debut album by Eve Belle ‘In Between Moments’ and brand new EPs from Flynn and Caleb Kunle.
Cork’s hotshot artist of the moment, Lenii, has entered US politics ahead of the election by allowing her new single ‘The Kids Are All Rebels’ to be used by Democrats. The Irish queen of slow jams, Biig Piig, is back with ‘Oh No’, RuthAnne returns with possibly her best single to date ‘Remember This’, while Imelda May has put her poetry aside for now with ’11 Past The Hour’.
Laoise is back and feeling ‘Healthy’ with her first release of the year. Fresh from the success of his collaboration with Lost Frequencies, Flynn is back in his own right with ‘Selling Me Love’, while St. Bishop is back with radio ready jam ‘Dreaming’.
For Those I Love follows up his impressive debut single with the ‘Top Scheme’ cementing his place as one of the most exciting new acts in Irish hip hop in 2020. There’s also hip hop from Johnny Climax, 7th Obi, wtr, Alicia Raye, Lemon Pie and JyellowL previews his upcoming debut album with ‘Tunnel Vision’.
Josh McClorey continues to re-establish who he is and who people think he is with his second solo single ‘Crazy’ while JC Stewart who McClorey sometimes provides guitar for releases an acoustic version of hit single ‘Too Many Night’ with 220 Kid. Also trying to step out of the shadow of people’s perceptions is Bray artist O’Sullivan, who has had a successful career in Eastern Europe throughout the last decade.
