Tanjier dazzle with new single “Yu”

Currently, Tanjier are holed up somewhere in the West of Ireland recording their 2nd EP, due out in September and many of our regular readers will remember their debut EP “Sunrise” was one of our favourites from 2016. “Yu” is the debut single from this new EP and is set for release June 24 with a show in Whelan’s, DUblin. After finding each other in Tanjier, Morocco in 2015 the band have been creating dark broody electro pop since. “Yu” sees a slight change in lineup and with it their sound is more heightened, stripped back, and raw.

Their delivery is on point and they sound like the band Babyshambles always wanted to be but were never...

The Scratch release new music with Vico Road

Review by Bobby Green The Scratch are a 4 piece from Dublin / Cork who play an exciting brand of traditional music that will ignite a passion within you. They look like they’ve found Howard Marks hidden supply in the Galtee Mountains and you’d fully expect them to start playing Hells Bells rather than the pulsating melodies and rhythms they are now becoming famous for. When music is played with this much passion it’s impossible to not be effected by it, Imagine Malcom Young’s driving rhythms with a traditional Irish flavour and you’ll be getting close to the sound...
