Having performed with Adele and impressed greats like Elton John and Avicii with his songwriting, Tramore native singer/songwriter Moncrieff has just signed to German label Energie Musik and drops his brand new single “Warm” today (21 January) across all digital platforms - ahead of an EP, set for release in Spring 2022
Dubliner Lucy Blue kicks off 2022 with latest EP ‘Surburban Hollywood’ & brand-new single ‘Postman.’ 2022 has already seen Lucy earn lots of “ones to watch” plaudits, including the NME 100 essential new artists and Clash Magazine’s 22 Next Wave acts who will shape 2022.
This one actually came out last week, but it’s too good not to include!
Released back in 1996 and taken from their debut album 1977, Oh Yeah is a gorgeous melodic track that isn’t afraid to go heavy with the guitars or emption. Still sounds great today
