Revolution Above Disorder is the work of Dubliner Stephen Nicholas White (The Orange Kyte, House of Dolls, The Subterranean Satellite Band, Magic Shoppe), who is currently based in Vancouver. We reviewed his deliciously cool shoegaze track ‘Illuminate’ last year and are pleased to present his new single ‘Scream Quietly’. A cover of the Television Personalities song, …

The magnificent Fontaines D.C. have announced their third album, ‘Skinty Fia’, to be released on 22 April 2022 on Partisan Records. After the double pleasures of ‘Doggerel’ and ‘A Hero’s Death’ released within one year of each other back in 2020, 2021 was a relatively quiet period for the Dublin band in terms of releases. …

Irish band Just Mustard have just released a visualiser for a new track ‘I Am You’, accompanying news that they will be supporting the marvelous Fontaines D.C.’s 2022 EU tour as well as releasing their new album in the new year through Partisan Records. The track perfectly captures Just Mustard’s brooding, stylistic music: serpentine rhythms, …

Revolution Above Disorder is the work of Dubliner Stephen Nicholas White (The Orange Kyte, House of Dolls, The Subterranean Satellite Band, Magic Shoppe), who is currently based in Vancouver. His new single ‘Illuminate’ is a delicious slice of dark, foreboding shoegaze with a Jesus and Mary Chain sneery disdain and a My Bloody Valentine chainsaw …

We are honoured to premiere the sonically arresting track ‘A Savage Goo’ from Dublin’s Let’s Set Sail: an enigmatic folk-infusion set on a bedrock of gurgling electronica and haunting vocals. Singer Warren McCarthy’s voice opens the track: naked and raw, a worn, whiskey-soaked gravelly tone infused with the heartache of generations. This is beautifully counterpointed …

Dublin-born, London-based singer/producer Orla Gartland has released her long-awaited debut album, Woman On The Internet via her own label New Friends. The beautifully flowing collection charts the artist’s emotional journey with fervour and introspection in equal measure, proving an incisive debut that is big on both feelings and sound. The culmination of years of music …

Following the release of her highly praised debut album A Common Turn earlier this year, Dublin-based multi-faceted singer/songwriter Anna B Savage returns with a new EP, These Dreams, set for release on 24 September via City Slang. The first single from the record, Since We Broke Up is now available everywhere to stream, with Savage …

The dark sonorous vocals of TV People have carved out a deliciously icy sculpture resting on the delicate instrumentation of ‘Out of the Silence’. There is an imperious and measured delivery, arctic scaling guitars and a meditative pace that evokes a sense of mystery and enigma. ‘Out of the Silence’ very much springs from the …

Dublin band Fruitz have announced the release of the anthemic new track ‘Be Like This’ for 18 June 2021, and Backseat Mafia is very honoured to give you an exclusive listen before its release. And it is a rousing and energising track indeed. ‘Be Like This’ is a classic, driving marauding indie pop song with …

Dublin’s The Crayon Set have just unveiled the utterly gorgeous single ‘Don’t Step Back Too Far’: a fey, wistful track that is delicate and pastoral. Intriguingly built on a bubbling, liquid electronic surface, the vocals are melancholic and haunting with a melody that is intricate and holds fast. There is a tension between the message …
