Artwork of six singles by Irish artist YINYANG

YINYANG is the moniker of Irish artist Lauren Hannan who has released her latest single ‘Happy Money‘. YINYANG evolved during lockdown in 2020 when Lauren taught herself how to produce music and cultivated her writing by working on it every day. Technology was a blessing during this enforced period of isolation and Lauren looked to …

Atlanta singer songwriter Teddy Swims stopped off in Dublin on his ‘Tough Love’ world tour, and it was powerful!

If you haven’t listened to Raj Haldar before, now’s as good a time as ever to get on board. He’s been making music as Lushlife for the better part of 15 years; with the odd detour into (bestselling!) children’s literature, which in turn led to a TV development deal and (separately) an India-set TV series. …

Indeed it does. As you’ll see for yourself below with the dizzying, …

I’ve admittedly slept on Ohio experimental hip-hop artist Eugenius when his album, Midlife, dropped in late 2020. Which is criminal given my appreciation of Death Grips, the sorely missed MF Doom and Danny Brown’s Atrocity Exhibition. Midlife by Eugenius Originally released in October, Eugenius’ fifth album “combines elements of hip hop, industrial, pop, noise and …

Well, it’s been a bit of a year, hasn’t it? Global pandemics, George Floyd, environmental issues, terrorism, dissatisfaction with those in charge, not least in the ongoing (it seems) fallout from the American Presidential election. None of that has stopped artists from all persuasions and genres making some fantastic music over the last 12 months. …

It may be a rare disorder, but many artists across the globe are ‘synesthetes’, including Brooklyn based artist Jovian. An artist that merges sounds using all senses, Jovian is a unique musician. Released November 13th, the latest adventure from the hip-hop and R&B songwriter is the brooding number ‘Where’d U Go’. A visionary to say …
