IRISH MUSIC: STRENGTH IN GENRES

Irish music could possibly be the strongest it has ever been!

That may be a bold statement to make but it is hard to ignore the quality of music that is being produced by Irish artists right now. Looking at what is being released over the last while there is such a diversity in genres too. There is always the staple of folk and singer songwriter types, but we also have great hip-hop music funneling its way into our eardrums, we have great rock music and some fantastic pop music.

 

SYML - WHERE's my love

Translated as “simple” in Welsh, SYML is the creation of Brian Fennell, a Seattle-native and founding member of the indie-rock band Barcelona. With a keen grasp on textural and emotive songwriting, Fennell combines piano, minimalist synth and string-scapes with ethereal vocals to take the listener on a journey through the senses.

'Where’s My Love’ is an expertly crafted song featuring sparse productions and intimate songwriting. It’s all underpinned by Fennell’s powerful, yet delicate vocals that drift in on exposed raw pleas of longing to reconnect with a loved one.

 

St. Vincent - New York

After a two year hiatus St. Vincent returns with a video for her track “New York”originally released earlier this summer. The video was directed by celebrated visual artist Alex Da Corte, his first time working in the music video format.

"I think Annie's New York is the New York of my dreams-one that is blurry and fractured, dreamy and flat. It is the Toontown to my Hollywood.  It is beautiful but slightly out of reach", says Da Corte.
