This holiday season, rising Irish artists Craig Cooney & Rowlette are spreading the festive spirit with their new track " December." 2020 has been a big year for both artists. “December” marks indie-pop artist Rowlette’s fourth release this year, with previous singles being added to Spotify editorial playlists (including Fresh Pop, Pop Right Now and New Music Friday), performing alongside Jack L, being RTÉ Culture Tune of the Day twice and packing out her first headline show. Craig Cooney has been pursuing music professionally for the past three years and has multiple headline shows under his belt. His fifth ever show was in the Olympia Theatre supporting Gavin James. He is a unique artist who tells stories through his songs and has gained popularity through his freestyling. This year, Craig released multiple singles as well as founding a cypher series featuring local artists.
The track is a heartfelt, uplifting fusion of hip-hop and pop, that reflects on the past year and the ups and downs it’s brought. Rowlette’s smooth, melodic vocals compliment Craig’s honest rap verses.The combination works really well, Rowlette's delivery is confident yet consoling whereas the rap verses provided by Craig Cooney cut to the core, bring a realization of what you have, what you've achieved, what you're grateful for over the year that's almost gone. We all know it has been a challenging time in many ways and there are high hopes for the year to come so keep your fingers crossed and your head full of dreams.
