Get festive with the new single from Wyvern Lingo

December 3rd, 2017 by

Partly written as a response to Simon and Garfunkel’s ‘I Am A Rock’, the latest single from trio Wyvern Lingo – ‘Snow II’ – is a delectable taste of what to expect from the band’s forthcoming full-length due out in early 2018. A fitting title given the time of year, ‘Snow II’ is a lilting, […]


Watch: Alien She – ‘Feed Me’

November 27th, 2017 by

Taken from their debut LP Feeler (out now via Art For Blind Records), get yer ears around the new track from Dublin garage-rock / punk trio Alien She. Firstly, because it rocks. Secondly, it rocks so much, we’re slightly concerned as to why we haven’t found and subsequently featured Aoife Mairead, Katie O’Neill, and Darragh McCabe before. […]


Listen to new music from Cork-based experimental electronic artist Trick Mist

November 27th, 2017 by

We’ve featured the ethereal electronica / folk stylings of Cork based Gavin Murray before, mainly because we were so enamoured by his unusual approach to traditional folk arrangements. As Trick Mist, Murray wraps his hauntingly beautiful compositions in an angular sheen, offering the listener a juxtaposition of tones that eschew the norm. Latest offering ‘Fraction’ […]


Watch the new video for ‘Cruelest Animal’ by Cork’s The Sunshine Factory

November 24th, 2017 by

Cork neo-psych five-piece The Sunshine Factory have just recently released the new video for rather stellar single ‘Cruelest Animal’, taken from their upcoming EP of the same name (Nov 30). A blissfully hypnotic concoction of spaced-out drone and motorik rhythm, the track comes equipped with kaleidoscopic visuals from For Eyes Creatives. With the EP launch […]

Watch: Rory Nellis – ‘Wild’

November 10th, 2017 by

The last single to be taken from his new album There Are Enough Songs In The World, which launches tomorrow evening in the MAC, Belfast (info here), ‘Wild’ sees singular NI singer-songwriter Rory Nellis applying his familiar motifs of emotive chord progressions and atmospheric crescendos to proceedings. A continuation of sorts from previous efforts we’ve featured, musically, the track […]

Watch: Malojian – ‘Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home’

October 31st, 2017 by

Taken from his recent, most excellent new full-length Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home, Malojian (Northern Irish singer-songwriter treasure Stephen Scullion) has shared the video for the title track and it’s really quite beautiful. Shot and directed by Belfast filmmaker and photographer Colm Laverty (who also filmed a documentary with Malojian around the recording of the latest album), […]

Listen: Tuath – ‘Cuz Why?’

October 16th, 2017 by

Droning, melodic, hypnotising – all attributes that the experimentally driven psych-rock outfit Tuath have deftly displayed throughout their blossoming career so far. Taken from their upcoming Youth EP, latest offering ‘Cuz Why?’ offers the listener a spiralling hodge-podge of deep and vibrant guitar lines and sombre, bittersweet vocals, all lovingly stirred in the technicolour pot of Rob […]
