Wonder Villains. Re-release Zola. Video with a very special guest.

23 Jun

 
Wonder Villains have proved again that Gianfranco Zola is a legend as he took the time to appear in the video for their song ‘Zola’, paying homage to the man himself. A Perfectly timed release to pin itself to the madness of the World Cup as it proves music is a funny old game of two halves. When a comeback is on the cards it just takes a moment of magic and the introduction of somebody like Zola to your music video can just offer something new and create some chances.
At the end of the day it was a good song they gave it 110% and probably deserved a little more out of it.

New Single. Color//Sound. To The Countryside

18 Jun

Colour Sound

 
Dublin based Oisin Furlong, Brendan McGlynn, Steven McCann and Ben Roe formed Color//Sound in 2012 at BIMM Dublin.

I’ve caught them live once or twice and every time they deliver a confident and self assured performance. A diverse sound delivered through all four members of the band who seem equally comfortable in front of a microphone and on their particular instrument leads to a very powerful performance. Their new single ‘To the countryside’ shows some of the ease they possess at sliding between floating soft melodies and upbeat guitar laden indie rock. Plenty of catchy hooks and harmonies as the lead vocals trade off between different members of the band it creates a huge sound from the four piece.

 
With influences ranging from Elliott Smith and Jeff Buckley to Explosions In The Sky and Radiohead, the band draws inspiration from all genres and combines them to create their own explosive sound. After a year of extensive gigging alongside the countries cream of the crop, including Cathy Davey, Villagers, Little Matador, Neil Hannon & Turn. Color//Sound are set to release their new single ‘To the Countryside’ soon maybe even in a couple of days as their facebook page is counting down to something.

‘To The Countryside’ is due for release on Monday 23rd of June.

Ian O’Doherty. New Video. Woven.

16 May

Ian O’Doherty released his fanatastic new single on the 12th of May. It’s an energy filled song that feels like its struggling against its bonds, full of earnest vocals and distraught lyrics.

 
Here’s a nice coincidence I’m pretty sure the protagonist of Ian O’Doherty’s video is the same actor that’s in Ciaran Lavery’s new video below check it out for yourself. One things for sure he does some excellent acting in both maybe you’ll see him on the big screen somewhere soon to.
