Megan Nic Ruairí – The Woods

Megan Nic Ruairí’s darkly lit offering ‘The Woods’ is a tracked tempered by atmosphere and reverberations. Pulled into focus by Nic Ruairí’s commanding vocal acrobatics, the song unfurls in a slow-burn of building textures.

Toria – Touch Me

The bewitching air of Toria’s ‘Touch Me’ has an instantly captivating effect, as the music sways to a slow-burn atmosphere and a truly inspiring vocal performance that captures the imagination. 

John Francis Flynn – Mole In The Ground

The entangled milieu of ‘Mole In The Ground’ (taken from his Look Over The Wall See The Sky) finds John Francis Flynn weaving a track of deep mood and tone, angular passages, and deadpan delivery. 

Chubby Cat – Kissing In The Valley-O

A myriad of sounds cut and clipped out of the speakers throughout Chubby Cat’s sonic collage pop track ‘Kissing in the Valley-O’ as the artist expresses the frustrations and fears of a generation.
