2012: Top Story: Faces of 2012: Digital Magazine and Compilation

All this week we’ve been bringing you our annual pick of new Irish musical talent, featuring the twenty acts that State feels will come to define 2012. From hip-hop and electronica to quiet acoustic sounds and loud guitars, we think it’s our best list yet. Now you can enjoy the Faces of 2012 in sound and vision, with our download compilation and gorgeous digital magazine – including many shots taken exclusively for this feature by our wonderful photographic team and lovingly laid out by State designer Simon Roche. We hope it showcases not just the musical talent blooming out of Ireland at the moment but also the energetic, young talent behind the cameras.

Until next year and the Faces of 2013, enjoy.

    Gorgeous photos and production. Really well done! Would love to see some Metal or Hardcore or Rock on there, but I guess that folk ain’t as pretty
