Featuring: Raye Zaragoza, Andrea Corr, CIRCE, Big Orange, Jack Trades & Kayrae, Pearl Charles, Waiting For Smith, Greta Isaac, Gianni Keys, and Gillian Heidi.
Raye’s sophomore offering is an accomplished collection. As No Depression put it, “Woman In Color is a bold statement, as intentional in its overarching narrative as it is in the craft of each track.”
Last Christmas Andrea Corr visited Dublin’s Our Lady’s Hospice in Harold’s Cross and sang a selection of her personal Christmas favourites. It was an incredibly moving experience that inspired her to record the songs this year.
‘She’s Made of Saints’ is an exhilarating, feminist piece of work, sound-tracking the apocalyptic life of a womxn living in the #metoo and #timesup era. Whilst this sounds bleak on the face of it, the beating heart of Circe’s message is one of defiance, socially and personally. Her imperious vocals are a rallying cry against the unjust bullshit experienced by womxn in all forms.
Big Orange put themselves out there wholeheartedly, presenting their debut album, An Ode To Odious. Releasing this eight track collection of alt-rock as we head into summer, Big Orange are giving fans an album that will uplift and rouse – it’s an album that cuts through the density that has been 2020 and instead, breaks things open for more hopeful times ahead.
Rising electronic producer Jack Trades and stunning vocalist Kayrae have released their latest single, ‘Phantoms’ on the 27th of November via Physical Presents.
Following the release of her dreamy new single ‘Imposter’, Pearl Charles has today released her assured rendition of The Band’s festive track, ‘Christmas Must Be Tonight’ with special guest Micahel Rault. Pearl’s stunning new album, Magic Mirror, is out on 15th January 2021 via Kanine Records.
Waiting For Smith new single “Lost in Your Light” is about the fact that we’re all pretending to be alright, happy or confident, but actually, in a way we’re all lost and are just too afraid to share this with one another. When you truly open up to someone, and show them your vulnerabilities and fears, it creates a kind of intimate glow around you.
While heavyweight champions on the lyric side, Greta lifts her songs to the skies with massive hooks and virtuous instrumentals. Her first offering ‘Power’ combines a sharp message with choral arrangements and minimal background music – an almost a capella song about the effect of poisoned compliments, the sinister anger coming across in words and music.
Marking his first ever release, fresh US producer Gianni Keys gets set for debut single In The House on Gorgon City’s esteemed REALM label.
A born and bred Chicago native, Gianni Keys has been patiently honing his productions to perfection. Taking inspirations from the early house music scene whilst adding his own modern spin, Gianni’s dance ready anthems have found their way into the inbox of label heads and industry heavyweights, Gorgon City.
Gillian Heidi shares her new single, “Moonlight,” out today on all streaming platforms. Guided by Heidi’s unmistakable vocals, “Moonlight” is a pensive ballad imbued with soaring harmonies and sparse, meditative instrumentals.
