If you get hit by that sweet warm tingling feeling when you listen to an Indie Folk Rock track you know you’ve found an absolute gem. There may be swathes of people attempting to stand out in the genre, yet Northern Ireland-based singer songwriter Conor Mac stood out by a country mile with his debut single Atlantis. His jangly guitar progressions accompanied by the deep reverberant basslines and light piano melodies came together as a work of aural alchemy. With Conor Mac’s vocals and poignantly piercing lyrics combined, you can be sure that you’ll knee deep into the track before you realise how entrenched you are in the delicate yet heavily weighted composition.
You can check out Conor Mac’s single, along with his latest single releases for yourself by heading to SoundCloud now. If you like your Rock a little heavier and infused with a pinch of Post Punk ‘Horns’ is a sensationally cataclysmic track which rolls with a relentless fluidity which I’m sure most Indie Rock artists on the scene to day couldn’t keep up with.
