It’s that time of the week again, time to get your fix of some incredible Irish music.
We’ve created a Spotify playlist where you can listen to this glorious music at your own leisure. It’s called Lovin Irish Music and we recommend you head over and follow it.
Now, it’s time to get down to business. Loads of new music was released during to week from Erica Cody dropping her EP to God Knows releasing a solo single.
Here are the five songs you need to hear this week:
1. Erica Cody – Where U Really From
First up on the list is brand new music from the queen Erica Cody.
Last week she released her EP Leoness, which is a play on the singer-songwriter’s star sign, Leo and her favourite animal, a lioness.
The five track EP is an empowering body of work which explores the singer’s identity and overcoming obstacles while growing up in Ireland.
Where U Really From, which explores themes of identity, self-expression and growing up in Dublin, is sure to be a massive hit.
2. God Knows – Crown
One third of Rusangno Family, God Knows released his debut solo single Crown last week.
It’s a collaboration with French producer Awir Leon and according to God Knows, the song is about shedding a light, ‘Whether that’s me shedding light by pointing out what’s happening in the country of my birth or paying homage to the current flourishing music scene here in Ireland. I see kings and queens of all walks of life making moves, regardless of the cards they’ve been dealt, and that’s inspiring. Power on!’
You’ll even hear shoutouts in the song to a few Irish artists killing it at the moment like JyellowL and Jafaris.
3. Otherkin – All That Remains Won’t Be The Same
4. Aimée – Don’t Bother
After sharing music content on social platforms such as Instagram and Youtube, gathering thousands of views Aimée is getting the much deserved airtime.
Aimeée said ‘I love ‘Don’t Bother’ so much because I feel like everyone has come across that one person that thinks they can have whoever they want, whenever they want. That’s only in a relationship for what they can get out of it. It’s basically a song to tell that person ‘Don’t bother, I’ll be gone!’ –and take the power back.’
5. Orla Gartland – Flatline
After spending the last two months touring Eurpoe, Orla Gartland is back with new music.
Her new single, Flatline, is ‘a song about giving everything to a friendship and getting nothing back’.
