AE Mak- Glow

AE Mak have become known for their energetic live performances that incorporate visuals and dance, mediums that enhance their bright style of music. ‘Glow’ is influenced by the emotions that surround arguing with those close to you and embodies a powerful energy with emotive synths, tribal beats and soul-stirring vocals from Aoife McCann. – This is the band’s first release since the departure of Ellie McMahon and it’s a dynamic return.

Fontaines D.C – Chequeless Reckless

Fontaines D.C are a band that reflect Dublin city in all its glory and defects through their own unique essence of rock and roll. ‘Chequeless Reckless’ is the first release from their forthcoming double A-side, a lyrically-focused and melodically infectious two-minute track with an underlining pensive mood.

The video was shot by JustGrayce ( that’s me) and edited by Conor Dockery.

Loah – Unveiled

Irish Sierra Leonean singer Sallay Matu Garnett or Loah categorises music as ‘ArtSoul’ which is certainly an accurate description for latest release ‘Unveiled’, as a follow up from her last track ‘Nothing’ this track sees Loah in a much more stripped back setting that shows off her hauntingly beautiful vocals accompanied by soothing acoustic guitar.

The video for Unveiled furthermore enhances the beauty of the track and is by Ellius Grace.
