AMOS – BATTLECRY

Review by Bobby Green From time to time we are forced to stop whatever it is we are doing and take note. Mainly it’s a trigger that fires the bullet that halts us, but sometimes it’s a voice, a story that resonates with you and holds you in the moment. Damien J Brennan, who goes by the stage name Amos, is a singer-songwriter from Dundrum, Co. Down. On 7th September Amos releases ‘Battlecry’ the first single to be taken from his debut album Letting Go which will follow in 2018. He describes Battlecry as one of the most stripped...

The Big Lovin’

Review by Bobby Green Good Pop will never die, it may look a bit strange from time to time but I feel that’s where its beauty is at its most potent. Spearheaded by his holiness Levi Lovell, The Big Lovin‘ took flight in 2017 when he returned from a six-year journey of self-discovery in the Far East.

The latest release from Daithi (feat. The Sei), video directed by Lochlainn McKenna, is a multi-layered masterpiece that delivers on every...

Runabay: Blink Of An Eye

Review by Bobby Green Blink of an Eye is the latest single by Northern Irish outfit Runabay and it’s the sound of Galaxy chocolate wrapped up in barbed wire. But sometimes we all go through pain to get what we desire. “Blink of an Eye is essentially about putting yourself out there and getting shot down whilst trying to keep a brave face” explains frontman John McManus. “It’s a serious song with a kind of self-deprecating edge to it. The narrative is reminiscent of that old adage, ‘If you didn’t laugh, you’d cry’” Since the bands formation in 2014,...
