Five fresh Irish tunes for a Friday! To hear all the latest and greatest in Irish music, check out Irish Beats with Rob O'Connor every Sunday at 8pm on Beat 102-103.


Every Bottle Is My Boyfriend

Today, CMAT shares the video for her new single Every Bottle Is My Boyfriend, taken from her debut album If My Wife New I'd Be Dead. Every Bottle Is My Boyfriend finds CMAT in typically candid form on this hook-laden nugget that pulls on the heartstrings and screams 'future karaoke classic'.


Millenial Bug


Aonair is back with another huge anthemic indie-pop release 'Millennial Bug', ahead of wider EP 'Loveheart Birthmark' set for release May 5th.


Disco Junkie


2022 is the year Pastiche is ready to step into her own spotlight. ‘Disco Junkie’ is the latest single to be taken from her recently-announced debut EP ‘Freak Show Symphony - expect lots of live shows in the not-too-distant future.

Dirty Dreamer

Piano 39


Ambient electronic trio Dirty Dreamer  grapple with hard truths and shine a light on everyday beauty with their moving new single ‘Piano 39.’ The single comes with the news that Dirty Dreamer, which was formed out of the ashes of the Choice-nominated band Come On Live Long, will release their debut album The Everyday In Bloom in April. 

Throwback: For Those I Love

I Have A Love

Last night, For Those I Love (aka David Balfe) was crowned the winner of the Choice Music Prize 2022, so that’s just the excuse we need to revisit a track from one of the best Irish albums of recent years.

To hear the likes of these tracks and more, listen to Irish Beats on Sundays at 8pm on Beat 102-103
