Gnarkats – Something to Say

July 8th, 2017 by

Belfast quartet Gnarkats are something of a beacon of hope amongst an increasingly over-saturated wave of new alt-rock outfits. Having been around the block for the past few years, the outfit bring to minds the likes of Pavement, whilst remaining staunch purveyors of their own brand of fuzz-soaked noise. Listen to new offering ‘Something to Say’, below, […]


Rory Nellis – All I Ever Wanted Was A Chance

June 16th, 2017 by

We’ve featured the delightfully husky tones of Belfast singer-songwriter Rory Nellis before, and with latest single ‘All I Ever Wanted Was A Chance’, it’s easy to see why (or hear, really). Taken from his forthcoming album There Are Enough Songs In The World, the track marks a considerable progression from the introspective acoustic balladry Nellis has honed […]


Slouch Share Double Single, ‘Umbrella on the Empty Sea’ & ‘It’s Not a Man Abandons Post’

May 24th, 2017 by

Dublin based trio Slouch have previously likened their music to “the sound of gorillas caged in a polystyrene prison cell.” This self-analysis is slightly unfair as their sound is far from personifying primitive tendencies which is demonstrated in their latest release, a double single featuring ‘It’s Not a Man Abandons Post’ and ‘Umbrella On The Empty […]


Silverbacks – Sink The Fat Moon (EP)

May 23rd, 2017 by

Currently out galavanting across the digital ether (and available to purchase, wink wink), Silverbacks’ new Sink The Fat Moon EP is a work of fuzzed-out insouciance. Cool and uncomplicated noise-rock is the name of the game, and across its five tracks Sink The Fat Moon delivers in spades. Spearheaded by Daniel and Kilian O’Kelly, before […]


SKYMAS – BubbleDub

April 26th, 2017 by

Just seven months on from the weird and abrasive techno-punk of ‘No Easy Way Out’, Belfast duo Skymas have returned with a glitchier, more refined cut in ‘BubbleDub’ – an idiosyncratic slice of aggro-electro with an explicitly Belfastian bent. The duo, comprised of ex Alloy Mental-ist Martin Corrigan, and Nick Todd, have harnessed the axe tactics of Stephen Leacock […]


Kid Karate – ‘Redbone’ (Childish Gambino)

April 21st, 2017 by

In what feels like a further leap towards a new full-length release, Kid Karate have been back in the studio recording a rendition of Childish Gambino’s sonic treasure ‘Redbone’ and it’s a bit great. Following on from the release of  ‘No Way’ in February, the trio originally recorded this cover as part of a live […]


Autre Monde Share New Single, ‘New Recruit’

April 19th, 2017 by

Recently established Dublin-based band Autre Monde made their debut only a few weeks ago with the release of their excellent introductory single, ‘Customs’. The quartet have been more than considerate to their new legion of fans as they have promptly shared the follow-up single, ‘New Recruit’, a rambunctious four minutes that will have you involuntarily nodding your […]


Rory Nellis Shares New Single, ‘Crossed Out’

April 17th, 2017 by

“Getting sentimental over things that never really happened.” This is just one of many resonating aspects of ‘Crossed Out’, the new single from the exceptional Rory Nellis. The Northern Irish singer-songwriter has garnered praise from critics as well building as a solid fanbase since 2015 following the release of his beautiful solo-debut entitled, Ready For You Now. […]


Touts – Sold Out

April 4th, 2017 by

“A singer that can’t sing, a mod that can’t play bass and a drummer that can’t see” is how Touts modestly describe themselves and, while they’re certainly still a bit rough around the edges, the Derry trio more than make up for it with passion and energy. New single ‘Sold Out’ is as punk as […]


Le Galaxie Share New Single, ‘Pleasure’

March 30th, 2017 by

It has been two years since Le Galaxie, steadfast favourite of the Irish music scene, released their outstanding Le Club album. They are renowned for their energetic live shows and for being one of the hardest working bands in Dublin. Their music has an exuberance that will make you want to stop whatever you’re doing, […]
