Zola Daze – Sun Bleached

Review by Bobby Green As the Irish summer of 2018 blazes on with no sign of stopping the blurry hazy memories in years to come will be triggered by whatever our personal soundtrack to this years unforgettable summer is.

Joshua Burnside

Review by Bobby Green For anyone who can’t afford a holiday this year the best thing for you to do would be to listen to the new EP from Joshua Burnside out on June 29th and let this award winning singer songwriter transport you away to a land of diotic experiences. Weaving elements of Irish traditional and European folk music with hints of Americana, he creates songs that are understated yet passionate and heartfelt.

The Whileaways

Review by Bobby Green Chillin in the sunshine lends itself to the enjoyment of good music, they go hand in hand, like Gin and Tonic, it’s a magical combination.  And while your whiling away the late evenings there’s no better way to enjoy the late warm sunshine then to be listening to the Whileaways. The Whileaways release the first single from their upcoming third album From What We’re Made on 11th June with the album to follow on 20th July. The single is two sided: the A side is ‘Roll Down Your Window’, a jaunty summer single featuring the...
