🇮🇪 The Official Irish Music Thread. 🇮🇪

It doesn’t feel pitched to an Irish audience despite the Tayto and Gemma O’Doherty references. So far across the wrong side of the “show don’t tell” line writing wise

You’ve nailed it for me here. He may as well be reading Twitter replies over some really piss poor music.

Listened to Olivia Furey’s set from Open Ear '22 earlier and it’s fucking brilliant and gas at the same time.

Really have to go to that festival.

How is this on any list other than one of shame?

Listened to the whole thing, violently bad. I love pop music but fuck me, that gave it a bad name.

I’m bored in work and just listened to a song from every band on the list and I dislike / hate all of it except Just Mustard.

:smiley:

The Mary Wallopers are another Dundalk bunch! (and are absolutely great)

I use to be school friends with the older brothers of the Hendy’s in the Mary Wallopers :smiley:
The band will never be my thing though…

First half is genuinely improved on what I’ve heard from them but by ‘I Love You’ I couldn’t wait for it to end. A band of half-baked bollocks.

The guitars sound fucking brilliant on it. Just a shame their drummer and bass player are so lacking. It all blends into one after a while. A band wasting their potential.

Think the drummer sounds great live, he gets louder every time I see them. Maybe not fully captured on the record though. Quite like the simplicity of the bass keeping things anchored as the guitars swirl around it.

New album does blend into one a little bit more than the debut admittedly but still a big fan.

Agree the guitars are incredible.
