Ireland


We are proud to exclusively unveil the new single ‘Fever’ from Ireland artist Keelan X, former member of The Marigolds. ‘Fever’ very much has an eighties genetic link with its lush bubbling sounds and sky-high melodies. The result is something energetic and euphoric with a frenetic pace and an aquatic sibilance. Keelan X displays a …

Swimming in the same stream as bands like compatriots The Murder Capital and Fontaines DC, The Clockworks have …
