Also in case you forgot about The Strypes here's one of their earlier tunes!


----------------------------------------------

The Blue Choir - Since We Last Spoke

I always love hearing new music from Maynooth's best band 'The Blue Choir'. It's a moody atmospheric masterpiece and represents the best that Ireland has to offer in alternative rock music.




---------------------------------------------

Kevin Herm Connolly - Shotgun

One of the true gents on Irish music is back with a new song and in some respects a new sound with this gorgeous, delicious slice of Americana folk that makes me excited to write about music. 



--------------------------------------------

Nicole Maguire - With You

A wonderful talent you can see around Ireland in the coming weeks is Nicole Maguire. I love this new single that's getting plenty of radio play.
