15 new Irish songs you should hear this week

A lot of Irish music comes Nialler9’s way and there’s little time to feature everything we think is worthy of a thumbs up or more ears. Every week, we collate the songs that pass our writers that deserve to be heard by you. For more extensive Irish, and Northern Irish coverage, follow our Spotify playlist or hit up the Irish section for individual track features.

1.

Arvo Party

Kyoto


Belfast producer Herb Magee is one of those unbearably prolific people who seems to make an album every few months. Upcoming album Inheritance is his FIFTH full length of the year – and I’d tell him to calm down – but you know, ‘Kyoto’ with its evocative synths and bright Eastern tones is as chill as they come.

2.

Telephony

Rockätansky

Mix And Fairbanks’ Rob Smyth made a remix of Man Power as Telephony recently, and now producer has returned the favour with a new release on Paradiso Records. The original is a slice of body-pumping low synth new beat.

3.

Bobbi Arlo

Signs

Fresh R&B pop from the 22-year-old Irish artist Bobbi Arlo.

4.

Luz

‘The Author’

The 19-year-old Irish Argentinian artist Luz continues her run of accessible reflective pop with ‘The Author’, a song about “falling in love with your best friend.”

It was recorded in her home studio in Offaly, (which really doesn’t feature here much as a county for music) with producer JMAC.

5.

Bitch Falcon

Martyr

The third single from Bitch Falcon’s album Staring At Clocks debuted today. Big bass, vocal and drum energy here. The album is out November 6th on Small Pond.

6.

A92 Collective

A92 Linkup

Clocking up 125K views since debuting on GRM Daily last week, Drogheda drill collective A92 (Offica, Ace, Nikz, Dbo, Trapboy, Kebz & KSav) come through with a posse cut with a beat by Navan  17-year-old producer JBJ. There’s a lot going on in Irish music that most people will never see.

7.

Adam Garrett

Casual

All round music talent Adam Garrett drops a disco-tinged indie pop song on Uly’s AndFriends label.

8.

Tomike

Whisper

Some neo-soul vibes from Tomike who just wants to express her desires without repercussions.

9.

nicetry

‘Willows’

New Dublin band nicetry released their debut single last week, a shoegazey throwback Mazzy Star-esque guitar tune with vocals by Eunice Saraiva anchoring the band’s atmospherics. Cian McDaid, Danilo Ward and Cam Teehan make up the band while this song was recorded at The Meadow, in Wicklow, with Rian Trench and Chris Con.

10.

Skripteh

115

After repping the East Coast, Wexford’s Skripteh is back and active with a new solo track.

11.

Crome Yellow

Don’t Really Want to Know Ya

The Stone Roses meets King Gizzard The Lizard Wizard vibes from Waterford’s Crome Yellow, misspelling intended.

12.

Qwasi

inis

Dublin electronic artist Eric Fitzgerald aka Qwasi comes through with a downbeat song on Bad Soup Records inspired by a trip to Inis Oirr, on the Aran Islands with the percussion inspired by a heavy storm he experienced there.

13.

Patrick Hendrick

Wannabe

This reminded me of something that might have come out on Stones Throw if it was produced by Washed Out, albeit with some Irish humour. It’s from Cork artist Patrick Hendrick.

14.

Colm Key & Fuller Moon

Never Turning Back

Dungarvan, Waterford musician Colm Key impresses with this collaboration with singer Fuller Moon.
