Tir Nan Og’s fifth studio album is an absolute blast. The project fuses the energy & confidence of punk with the raw creativity & hypnotism of Celtic folk. Captivating story telling & stunning musicianship.
Bringing together a distinctly dreamlike array of songs driven with an emotionally connected leading voice, presenting each concept & melody in a way that really opens the music up to a string of new audiences.
The song is beautiful & would settle in confidently as the ‘our song’ for any number of couples in love. It’s personal & emotional, but the imagery & ideas are quite vague – so these instances can be applied to many listeners.
A totally unexpected EP for so many reasons. The music alone makes for something you rarely come to experience anymore. As things progress, you’re introduced to more & more intricacies & traits of the character behind it all.
You’re likely to find these tracks popping back up in your mind repeatedly for the foreseeable future – the peacefulness of a subtle, gentle ear worm is far more enjoyable than that which forces its way into your consciousness. These are brilliant songs.
X-Rated is the jaw-droppingly explicit new single from artist & songwriter Jamar Germain. The title is undeniably true to the concept, and this is the perfect RnB-Pop crossover song to see music fans through to the upcoming brighter seasons.
There are numerous times throughout this project at which something completely surprises, really helping keep it appealing & enjoyable. This is an extremely personal, characterful album that also presents a lot of skill & thoughtfulness.
The lyrics offer a notably poetic string of images, a story that is slightly distant seeming, but that grabs your attention regardless. Certain lines stand out & further the haunting feeling – ‘I come to watch you die’ is a perfectly fitting example.
Hazzy E is an artist crafting her own unique take on pop & hip hop that is soaked in a certain sense of identity & originality. There’s a touch of the familiar in the style & swagger of Bitter – the rhythm, the pace, the passion & confidence.
The artist’s now familiar & comforting leading voice delivers the sentiment & the various stages of the song in a perfectly delicate, genuine way. The soundscape showcases a lightly upbeat rhythm & folk-rock energy.
Marcus Christ returns in 2018 to bring audiences a deeply personal track with multiple layers of vocals that help bring out the emotional intensity of its subject matter.
The musicianship is superb, as is the creativity. It’s the perfect meeting of the bizarre & the skillful, the unknown & the ever-impressive. The journey the audio takes you on is wonderful, weird, powerful & impossible to predict.
