Miles Graham – Let It Shine

Miles Graham

Dublin musician, Miles Graham, isn’t one that you would usually associate with electronic music, but his recent collaborations with L’Tric and Don Diablo suggest otherwise, but we are not here to discuss his electronic endeavours, but rather his new track ‘Let It Shine’.

The visuals for ‘Let It Shine’ are by Peter J Cooney, and follows the theme of the track – a beautifully down to earth narrative following the pain, anguish and ultimately, elation that we all experience in day to day life, perfectly demonstrated by Mile’s apt lyrics laden over very radio friendly gospel melodies.

Sounds like: James Morrison, Jack Savoretti, Ben Howard, Foy Vance, Ed Sheeran, Van Morrison, Alex Clare

Ivy Nations – Disintegrate

Ivy Nations - Disintegrate

Ivy Nations – Disintegrate

A suitable track for a day made in history.

80’s inspired indie rock band, Ivy Nations share ‘Disintegrate’.

“If there is one song that demonstrates the lengths the band has reached to create a sound – it’s Disintegrate. The song was rewritten and recorded many times during attempts to get it right. The result, all of our energy and emotion captured on a track that is cathartic, driven by collapsing structures and farewells to the past.”

Funeral Suits

Ivy Nations – You Are The Centre Of Me

Ivy Nations - You Are the Centre of Me

Ivy Nations – You Are the Centre of Me

Ivy Nations are a fun rock band from Dublin, comprised of Darragh Faughey, Brian Sinnott, Joe Kiernan, and Paul Donohoe.

Following the success of ‘The Mile Road’, Ivy Nations have released a foot-stepping catchy pop number, ‘You Are The Centre Of Me’.

According to the band, “It’s about control – a possessive relationship. One person yielding control over the other long after the relationship has ended. An addiction, that eventually paralyses both. The result, an inability to truly love another. An inability to forgive, to accept ones fate, that is, bound by fears, loss and anxiety. Lusting over the possessed partner. An unhealthy desire to be with them at any cost.”

Its out today.

Premiere: Cut Once – Playing With Fire

Cut Once

Cut Once

Irish electro band Cut Once is comprised of Aisling Browne (formerly of Solar Taxi) and Michael Heffernan. The pair met at Temple Lane Studios, where Michael is also Head Engineer.

Bringing a darker side to techno, Cut Once is starting to develop a bit of a cult following in Dublin and further afield.

The old school-inspired video starts by following a girl singing and dancing along to their new track ‘Playng With Fire’. Upon first glance, this could easily be a 90’s pop video, however the video soon delves into something a little darker, as the girl enters a Cut Once show in an industrial venue.

It’s a perfectly fitting video for what is a really cool track.

Blooms – Love

Blooms

Blooms

Some serious talent. Blooms is Louise Cunnane.

The Hackney based, Irish born artist began writing music as a child, but crippling stage fright meant putting dreams on hold while finding another path. Her initial tracks were born out of heartache as a relationship with her then boyfriend came to an end. Moving out of their home in Dublin and back to her family home in Mayo, Cunnane used her feelings of loss and despair to create her debut EP, ‘If’, a collection of tracks which is described as “the story of a relationship from beginning to end”.

‘Love’ is the second track taken from her second EP, ‘Still’. Produced by PNUT (Amy Winehouse, Holychild).

Speaking on the track, Cunnane states:

” Love is a reflection on my first EP; remembering all of the great parts – which is so easily done after the breakdown of anything – but then strongly reminding myself that I have come too far to come back. I have been locked in this weird little personal battle and I refuse to be defined by it. ”

Also developing her own label, Skin On Skin Records, we can’t wait to hear more!

Sounds like: Banks, Evvy, London Grammar, Broods, Dominique, Ellie Goulding, July Child, Sasha Keable
