Klubber Lang - Make Amends (single)

Somewhat of a nineties supergroup, Dublin outfit Klubber Lang are made up of Revelino guitarist Ciaran Tallon, ex-(sic) bass player Ciaran McGoldrick on vocals and bass, ex-Mexican Pets drummer Fin O'Leary and producer Ronan McHugh on keyboards. With the two singles released to date, ‘There, There’ and ‘Not My Day’, Klubber Lang have made a real statement of intent and have created a real level of expectation about what is yet to come.

Afterbliss - Shout It Out (single)

Formed in 2019, Afterbliss' blend of melodic rock, hard riffs and indie synth pop have firmly cemented them as one of Dublin's most interesting and exciting acts to emerge in recent years. The origins of the band can be traced back to 2018 when guitarist/synth player Alex Burcea and drummer Ally Pender, who had played together in a previous band,  realised they had a strong creative spark. They pair up together a handful of early songs and co-founded the group. The current line-up was completed with the addition of lead vocalist Evan Cassidy, guitarist James O'Gorman and bassist Shane Waldron who helped shape the band's sound.

Sorcha Richardson - Archie (single)

Dublin artist Sorcha Richardson is releasing a new single 'Archie' along with a stunning cinematic video . ‘Archie’ is a coming-of-age tale based upon friendship rather than love, and those big open road dreams of where that naive, teenage love of music may one day take you. It’s also symbolic of Sorcha’s disregard for genre expectations. What starts as dusky, desert folk suddenly takes on a grander, majestic elegance. It is the highly anticipated follow up to Sorcha's debut album ‘First Prize Bravery’ and she has garnered almost 48 million streams on Spotify alone. Sorcha has just finished supporting Villagers on a European Tour in May along with a special showcase event in LA as part of the School Night Show and played the Barbican, London show on May 26th.

He has emerged as that rare modern act as integral to the worlds of hip-hop and textured R&B as he is the singer-songwriter roots of his early days.

Davie Furey - History (single)

Irish singer-songwriter Davie Furey’s new single, “History,” is an anthemic slice of Celtic-folk-infused, synth-bolstered jangle pop begging to echo off arena walls. It’s a sound as big as its carpe-diem call to action: Stand up straight with your eyes wide open … If you're not with me get outta the way … Now’s not the time for hard luck stories, now’s not the time for former glories …  It’s our time, to make a bit of history

Initially, Furey says, the song was written for his friend, Irish boxer Michael Conlan—the fiery former olympian who just challenged for the WBA world featherweight title.
