The Last Mixed Tape adds to its Irish Mixed-Tape on Spotify with new music by Bitch Falcon, Paddy Hanna. James Vincent McMorrow, Kojaque, Tolü Makay, The Clockworks, Wyvern Lingo, ROE, Insideawave, and Carron X Kobina..
Bitch Falcon – Test Trip
The second single take from Bitch Falcon’s forthcoming debut Staring At Clocks, ‘Test Trip’ finds the three-piece adding a brooding tonally deeper side to their music that puts the large-scale dynamism of their sound into sharp perspective.
Paddy Hanna – Colosseum
Giving us a further glimpse into the sound of The Hill, ‘Colosseum’ finds Paddy Hanna delivering a retro-pop tinged noire-bop with Hanna’s signature lyrical twists and turns, ear for a hook and off-kilter sonic presentation.
James Vincent McMorrow with Kenny Beats – I Should Go
Sonically lush, melodically intricate and rhythmically rich, James Vincent McMorrow’s latest glimpse into his fifth studio album has a vivid colour palette to it brought to the fore by McMorrow’s ability to meld one genre into another.
Kojaque – Shmelly
‘Shmelly’ marks a giant leap in terms of stylism from Kojaque as the Irish MC dominates the foreground as the genre warping and minimalist backdrop beats punctuates each line.
Tolü Makay – Don’t Let Go
A deep, smooth sound surrounds Tolü Makay’s ‘Don’t Let Go’, as Makay delivers a lush vocal performance that takes centre-stage within the delicately woven soul-pop production creating a powerful listen.
The Clockworks – Can I Speak To A Manager?
A blistering and tense new offering from the Clockworks, the rattling sound of ‘Can I Speak To A Manager?’ speaks to the growing immediacy that emanates from the band’s recent output.
Wyvern Lingo – Brutal Lottery
The lowlight mood of Wyvern Lingo’s ‘Brutal Lottery’ finds the three-piece creating a harmony textured backdrop for the song’s pointed lyrical themes of racism, hypocrisy, and bigoted societal structures and attitudes, resulting in a compelling melding of the Wyvern Lingo’s depthful sound and songwriting.
ROE – A Quiet Place
Taken from ROE’s brand new E.P. Things We Don’t Talk About, ‘A Quiet Place’ is a full-scale offering from ROE brimming to the top with the songwriter’s heartfelt lyrical characteristics, big-choruses and a vibrant production.
Carron X Kobina – Even Sad Birds Sing
Featuring as part of Carron’s current remix series, Kobina’s reimagining of ‘Even Sad Birds Sing’ adds a contorted electronic layer to the music through short-cut, clipped vocal lines, intricate beat and full-screen production.
Insideawave – Tour Guides
A hazy, dreamlike sound is juxtaposed by the fuzzing foreground of Insideawave’s latest offering ‘Tour Guides’. A texturally contrasting track, the single works as an engaging work of individuality.
