With the return of Ireland Music Week, hear our thoughts about day two of the Dublin-based event.
He could certainly be anyone’s valentine with a stunning voice and looks to match. This soulful vocalist has what it takes to go far.
This talented young artist has a low-key sweet soulful rap style. Paired with a twangy guitar, this makes an interesting sound. Promising.
Gorgeous vocals, paired with soft guitar and a beautifully played violin, makes this a unique prospect. Reminds me of stateside band, Murder By Death, who were incredible. One of my favourites of the whole festival. Future stars.
Gentle indie-pop at its best. A massive nod towards iconic Scottish band The Blue Nile which is a massive compliment. Vocalist is charming and sings like he means it. Gorgeous.
This young rapper is the real deal, with bags of attitude and the tracks to match. She has the potential to cross into the mainstream.
Interesting band with multiple influences melting into one big pot of musical fun. Kaiser Chiefs meets Spandau Ballet and Duran Duran. This is an amazing band.
Low-fi melodic tunes, this indie-pop quartet are The cardigans meets Tame Impala. They make you feel like you are sitting on a beach chilling watching the sun go down. Sublime.
This quirky solo artist has a gorgeous voice, paired with interesting melodies and relatable lyrics. It’s mooted as indie-pop but I feel that there’s more depth to this young artist and that she’s not even scratching the surface. Exciting times ahead.
A lot of hype about this young artist, but she lives up to it! A rare breed – she not only has a huge stage presence but has the right slice of cool combined with a pop sensibility. A star is born.
Loud, distorted and with a wall of sound – the band created more chaos in a club show than I have seen in recent memory. They commanded attention from the audience – diving into the crowd to create even more chaos. The crowd was left wanting more. Truly the most memorable band of the night.
