TLMT counts down the latest additions to its Irish Mixed-Tape on Spotify with new music by Dermot Kennedy, the Murder Capital, SOAK, Zaska & more.
Dermot Kennedy starts off 2019 with the powerful new single ‘For Island Fires and Family’. Backed by a suitably start indie-folk production that allows Kennedy’s voice to convey the emotion behind the track, the rising songwriter’s latest outing is a striking one.
The much-anticipated debut single from the Murder Capital arrived this week. Taking the shape of the dominant vocal driven post-punk of ‘Feeling Fades’, the track is a solid, scene-setting start from a band who could have a breakout 2019.
The sonic sea change that SOAK has undergone since her acclaimed debut outing has become clearer in the lush indie-pop banger ‘Knock Me Off My Feet’, a heart-warming powerpop ballad.
Talos returns with the characteristically far-reaching sound of ‘The Light Upon Us’, filled with soaring vocals, widescreen harmonic backdrops and an ambitious production the song exudes atmosphere.
Darkly edged electro-pop, Sylk’s ‘All In Ur Head’ is constructed from augmented vocals, undulating electronic pops and clicks and unrelenting beats.
Lousie Gaffney teams up with Zaska on the soulful ‘It’s Ridiculous’, juxtaposing the laid back funk that lies at the centre of the track the social frustration conveyed in the lyrics adds the sense of authenticity that flows through the music.
The Mixed-Tape: A sublime slice of lush indie-pop, the hazy aesthetic of Peachface’s music is brought to the fore on the group’s debut single, the harmony-laden ‘You Never Saw Me Dance.
Big, bold, ambitious pop from True Tides. ‘The Answer’ swings for the fences on every level, with a sound brimming to the top with hooks, beats and sing-a-long choruses.
