With a sound that falls somewhere between Dua Lipa and Taylor Swift, Irish band Wild Wonder are straight out of the gate with new single, ‘Said And Done’. Be warned that the song, which has classic pop bones set against strong vocals and gorgeous instrumentation, will have you humming the extremely catchy chorus all day – and then some.
Imogen Shute moved to Melbourne to follow her dream of becoming a recording artist. The Australian pop singer released her first song earlier this year, and with latest single, ‘Just For A Second’, we find her going from strength to strength, as her sound and image are imbued with a new confidence. Recorded at Truth Studios, the track is set for release on August 15.
Hailing from the Australian state of Tasmania, pop singer songwriter Nuria writes music about the human experience; her latest single, ‘Touch’, released July 31, took its inspiration from those feelings of longing that have been brought about by the enforced isolation of COVID-19 lockdown. The song was recorded in her caravan home studio, and with further production work by Dave Crowe (aka Resin Moon), based in Alice Springs, The Northern Territory.
NII CO. was previously signed to Warner Music Philippines and had released three singles with the label before rebranding himself as NII CO. The pop and future bass producer has released his latest single, ‘In My Dreams’, a song appropriate for these pandemic times, about the fear of loneliness, and the search for love and companionship.
The second single from actress Natasha Heschélle, ‘Without Your Love’ is a love ballad that is at the same time a full on dance groove. The track is the follow up to ‘Can’t Nobody Bring Me Down’, which she released earlier this year. ‘Without Your Love’ was written as a part of the Canadian TV series, ‘Zahara: The Return’, which can be seen on Amazon Prime.
When you hear the lyrics of ‘More Time’, the first track on Eileen Gogan And The Instructions new album, ‘Under Moving Skies’, you know it’s by an Irish artist. Sure, you might argue, Eileen Gogan’s very name is a bit of a give away, but I think it goes further than that. There’s a certain melancholy to Irish music; you’ll hear it in The Cranberries, The Corrs, U2 – even more recent Irish artists such as Inhaler, Jedward, Columbia Mills, and Robert O’Connor have it. Kodaline has it. And Eileen Gogan has it in spades.
