Newfound Sounds for September

Aoife Barry's monthly round-up of new Irish music

Ghost Estates

Ghost Estates


It’s hard to believe that it’s almost September already – the only way to soothe our end-of-summer blues is with great music, so have a listen to this month’s Newfound Sounds podcast to make things feel a-ok.

If you want to escape to cloud-cuckoo land, let Teishi-1 and his electronic dreamscapes bring you to that faraway place. The track is out in September.

Speaking of electronica, Lasertom will bring you on a more intense, disco-inflected journey, thanks to his latest record, Drift. Drift away, indeed. It’s due out at the end of September.

For something more lo-fi, there’s Peadar Kearney’s Paname, which is, believe it or not, the first track the 22-year-old has written on his own. It bodes well for future releases.

You might recognise Ghost EstatesWinter’s Day, but they have a brand new video for it to show that they haven’t gone away. They’re hard at work on their second album, so watch this space.

Hidden Highways make beautiful, soulful and touching music, so it is very exciting to have a new track from their forthcoming record, Old Hearts Reborn, on the podcast this month. It’s out on Out On A Limb Records and is truly sublime.

If you want to hear about even more new Irish bands that have to be listened to, on this month’s podcast there is an interview with Gib Cassidy from the record store Elastic Witch. He gives his picks for the best new Irish bands, and you’ll want to check them all out immediately.
