BRÍDÍN – Floating
Sligo-based harp player BRÍDÍN has this week released a new single, ‘Floating’, which will feature in her debut EP Ocean of Stars, due for release on 24 February. With a background in traditional music, BRÍDÍN blends her harp playing with electronics and loops to create her own sound. Speaking about ‘Floating’, she said, ‘[I] came up with this song when I was enjoying the beach in Spain one summer. It’s about how you should stop racing around every once in a while, and take a moment for yourself’. Visit:

Happyalone – Let’s Run Away
‘Let’s Run Away’ is the new single from alt-pop band from Cork, Happyalone. Following the release of ‘Private Sedative’ in 2020, ‘Let’s Run Away’ has a gritty, edgy, 90s-nostalgia sound. The band take inspiration from shoegaze, grunge and trip-hop, yet this upbeat track is the furthest they have delved into pop so far. Visit:
