Introducing a Mix of New Irish Music #11

Here's a mix of new Irish music that made it onto my radar in the recent weeks!

Shannon

Hailing from Co. Meath, Shannon is a twenty year old singer who is bursting onto the scene with a debut EP, an official video shot in Slane Castle and a headline date in Whelans booked for March 12th. The EP entitled 'A Million Miles' showcases Shannon's extraordinary vocal range on the Jazzy rocking tracks 'Trouble' and the title track while lovesong 'Romeo' and the gentle 'Can't Hide' are sublime.

EP Launch: Whelans March 12th

Swords

Swords are a three piece electronic rock band based in Dublin and are already achieving the kind of positive press most bands can only dream of. It's not my favourite type of music but there are some really nice moments on their debut EP 'Black Balloon' such as this track 'Special'.

The Rambleers

Alternative blues rockers The Rambleers have been going strong since 2005 but for some reason they never got featured on the blog. The band are touring in March to promote their new music:


One new track is 'Layman' and it's free to download!

From Donegal, Sweet Little Lies make fun rock/pop with a hint of reggae to jazz it up! Think a chilled out Wallis Bird with a brass section! I'm loving the sounds of Sweet Little Lies!
