6 new Irish songs you should hear this week

Luke Sharkey

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 coverage, follow our Spotify playlist or hit up the Irish section.



Would You Let Me In?

There’s been a fair amount of buzz around Dublin-based artist April over the past couple of weeks. Take a couple of minutes to listen to her most recent track ‘Would You Let Me In?’ to find out why. A superbly soulful voice and some deft arrangements make for an R&B track as sweet as a nut. An exciting prospect.


Lisa Hannigan & Stargaze


Lisa Hannigan and s t a r g a z e - Bookmark (Official Audio)

Taken from the forthcoming Live In Dublin collaborative LP, Lisa Hannigan and Stargaze’s reimagining of ‘Bookmarks’ is sublime. Hannigan remains among the very top tier of vocalists this nation has ever produced. For their part, Stargaze masterfully handles the dynamics of their collective instruments, rising and falling in tandem with Hannigan’s words and voice.



Call Home (One Million Chapters Remix)

Heathers have been absent from the Irish musical zeitgeist for some time now, haven taken a hiatus. However, the group have promised new things in 2019. This remix of ‘Call Home’, sent into them by producer One Million Chapters, reimagines the track a summery EDM track – big drop and all.


Kodu ft. Rumi


This new single from Limerick native electronic group Kodu features vocals from Rumi. It’s a shimmering, warped piece of mellowed of electronica. The single is taken from the group’s forthcoming Maya. There’s some excellent synth work on this one.


Tim Chadwick

I Need To Know

Dublin native pop artist Tim Chadwick’s new single Know’ is exactly the sort of high calibre radio-friendly material you’d expect from an artist pushing for a wider audience. Chadwick absolutely knows what he’s doing and does it well, even if the end result is a little too sugary sweet for us at times.


Third Smoke

We Run In Bare Feet

Dundalk natives Third Smoke’s new single ‘We Run In Bare Feet’ got a fair few plays down this way this week. It’s well polished indie pop music. The group will be playing in the Sound House on April 26th. Event details are available here.
