TLMT counts down the latest additions to its Irish Mixed-Tape on Spotify with new music by Laoise, Lisa Hannigan & Stargaze, Grainne Cotter, Sive, Third Smoke, Old Hannah, and Tim Chadwick.
Laoise – Mad
Laoise makes her return, stepping into 2019 with her new E.P. Mad. The title-track serves as another giant leap as Laoise’s pin-point pop sensibilities are honed into a track brimming to the top with electro-pop hooks, slick beats and a production to match the ambition.
Lisa Hannigan & Stargaze – Bookmark (Live)
As dreamy and enchanting as you’d expect. The live collaboration between and Lisa Hannigan and Stargaze is unbound by convention through a music that twists, weaves and turns with a turbulent undercurrent of harmonic texture and Hannigan’s inviting vocal.
Grainne Cotter – Shadows
Awash with glistening textural backdrops, ‘Shadows’ finds Grainne Cotter delivering an enigmatic sound that adds a dark undertone to the indie-folk foreground, one that Cotter rests an enthralling vocal upon.
Sive – Do It All The Time
Sive’s recent run output has delivered on all the early promise. With ‘Do It All The Time” her singular voice both musically and lyrically comes to the fore in a track that creates a world in and of itself through building layers.
Tim Chadwick – I Need To Know
Lush pop music is the order of the day with ‘I Need To Know’. A sharply stylish new single from Tim Chadwick, the single is an instant earworm that begs to be played on loop.
Third Smoke – We Run In Bare Feet
Alt-rock with a widened-scope, Third Smoke’s ‘We Run In Bare Feet’ has a persisntant rhythmic pulse to it that drives the crashing sound the strong textural backbone Third Smoke build beneath.
Old Hannah – The Way The Light Falls On The Water
A song of beauty and subtly, Old Hannah’s ‘The Way The Light Falls On The Water’ is simply gorgeous to listen to. From the deep of field, sweetly stacked harmonies and interwoven melodies, there’s an ethereal quality to the music that can’t be denied.
