Best of 2014: Readers’ Top 30 Irish songs

Best of 2014 : Albums | Songs | Readers Irish Albums | Readers Irish songs | Remixes | Videos 


The results of your favourite Irish songs are in.  It was a breakthrough year for a few Irish acts this year namely Hozier (duh),  The Riptide Movement, EMBRZ and God Knows + MynameisJohn. Established acts or artists who have been around a while like James Vincent McMorrow, The Riptide Movement, Girl Band, SOAK, Cloud Castle Lake and Le Galaxie stepped it up.

The addition of ‘Cavalier’, ‘Red Dust’ and the ubiquitous ‘Take Me To Church’, which placed highly last year were a result of their mainstream success. You might have heard it online last year but the latter in particular was everywhere, becoming the most virally streamed track on Spotify of 2014 in the entire world.

2014 has shown that Irish acts through their deals in the industry have forged paths and made careers for themselves while writing great tunes. This can only be a good thing for 2015 as the world continues to look to this small Ireland for music. The only thing needed now is more governmental recognition of this talent. How about it?
