Tracks of the Week playlist 1. Adebisi Shank – ‘Big Unit’ “It’s the sound of the Berlin Wall falling down.

Well here’s something a bit different. Dear Desert are a brand new Irish band, based in Dublin consisting of Brendan Millar (Futures Apart), Richie Fenton and James O’Donnell (Hush War Cry). Judging by their debut track, the ‘Give It Up’, this is a trio steeped in heart-on-sleeve ’80s pop. There’s an elegant lean to the… Read more »

UNKNWN gave us the floating electronic track ‘BBY’ as a preview of their upcoming Devil/BBY release on Champion Sound Recordings. Now, the flipside, ‘Devil’ has arrived and Chris Hanna and Gemma Dunleavy’s new track is a shuffling atmospheric garage-house groover with some rising piano and dub-style synth stabs underpinning Dunleavy’s impressive lead vocal. The track… Read more »
