Of Monsters & Men

One of the homegrown acts who stood tall at this month’s Airwaves festival in Iceland, Of Monsters & Men are gaining a lot of love for their “My Head Is An Animal” debut album. One for those who dig anthemic folky pop tunes with oodles of charm and energy.

Burrows

From Waterford, Burrows is the work of Kate Glavey, previously seen in local band Hollering Pines. Burrows is a sound of a different stripe, as forthcoming debut album “In Winter” shows. Its wash of haunting, cinematic atmospherics and dark, broody moods are perfectly matched to the season currently about to arrive outside your window. Hear “In Winter” on her Bandcamp page.

Come On Live Long

The magnificent “Elephants and Time” from the Dublin band’s current EP “Mender” is what has attracted us to their impressive, full-bodied, soaring widescreen sound. For a band who only came together last year, Come On Live Long are already exuding considerable confidence.
