Alex Gough isn’t taking 2020 for a ‘Fool’


The budding Waterford multi-instrumentalist Alex Gough left a really big impression on Irish music last year with tracks like ‘Breakfast’ and confident live shows with Gough at the helm on drums and vocals.

Ahead of next week’s Eurosonic Festival in the Netherlands, where Gough is playing alongside 9 other Irish artists, the artist has dropped ‘Fool’, a parping brass and low-end-assisted track with production bolstered by Matt Corrigan.

“‘FOOL’ was definitely a spontaneous creation. Sparked while scrolling through different plug ins and sample packs, and coming across one that caught my attention straight away. While waiting for food, we started messing around with it and had the basis of ‘FOOL’ in about half an hour max. 

I kept delaying my drive home because of the amount of fun I was having with it, and there is no doubt that this comes across in the final track. Sometimes the best moments are the ones you don’t expect.”
