The highly anticipated third album from Harry Styles is only days away and sees this modern pop icon fearlessly find himself as a solo artist. Aptly titled ‘Harry’s House’, the album is an all-encompassing stream of consciousness alongside a unique retro-pop sound.  ‘Harry’s House’ is the natural progression from the stepping stone debut and sophomore …

Words: Max Falvey // Pictures: Carl McGrath “Thank you so much for choosing us over Eurovision, I’m not sure I would’ve done the same!” After releasing their fourth studio album ‘Sometimes We See In The Dark’ on Friday, Mullingar native’s The Blizzards performed an outstanding one-off show in Dublin’s Academy last night, playing over an …

Nordic Dark Folk artist Sowulo has shared the second single and lyric video for “Stearcost Ealra”, taken from his upcoming new studio album “Wurdiz”, due 9th September via By Norse Music. ‘Stearcost Ealra’ is a powerful song about fate and destiny, and how both notions are the strongest of all.

Their stripped-back, almost minimalist approach speaks of a charisma and a confidence that is rarely found, and their live outings somehow manage to be oddly chill and intense …
