Feeling lonely in this distant world: Ireland’s Dubh Lee evolves her sound on ‘Carousel’

Set for audio release on the 20th November 2020 and with the music video dropping in December, this has an honest Bluesy-Rock feel that means you are hooked tight, with the intimate feel presented. The start is full of rhythmical melodies that you feel are so pure and fresh, just the way you like it. Soon we are thrown into a story of loneliness that is so way too normal this year, with the exquisite voice of Irish singer Dubh Lee’s new song called ‘Carousel‘.

Her voice grabs you and feel her pain, the year has been a whirlwind of emotions that has tested the patience of even the most chilled person in the world. The story of being by yourself, trying to be smart and keeping safe, soon you just can’t take it anymore, and you desire that human touch again from friends and your future lover.

With a Blues-Rock Garage style that has so much appeal, the bass-lines are so hot you might need to have a cold shower to cool off. You can’t help but feel the sadness attached, the frustration paramount, in this wild year of 2020. Her voice echoes through your soul, this is a musician that has evolved from Indie-Folk, to a more edgy and gritty sound.

Carousel‘ has that extra bit of quality attached and that fat bass is a blessing to our lonely hearts, the cries are heard loud and clear as Dubh Lee is so honest as so many of us can relate to her current predicament.

Life has been turned upside down so we need to find good habits to hold onto, and keep them close when the world resembles some sense of normality in 2021.

Hear this tremendous talent on her Soundcloud and follow her Facebook for more releases.

Geno Samuel puts a new spin on the old line “It’s Not You, It’s Me” with their latest single

Geno Samuel

Hearing the words “it’s not you, it’s me” is generally a soul-destroying experience, aside from when you’re soaking in the evocative lyrics in up and coming Irish singer-songwriter Geno Samuel’s latest single.

The acoustic rock track unashamedly spills plenty of old school romantic soul which wraps around the roots of rock n roll to create an ardour-soaked intense aural experience. With timeless tones which will appeal to any fans of Springsteen and Bryan Adams paired with Geno Samuel’s stylistically compelling Rock vocals, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more accessible Rock track which oozes contemporary appeal.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out the single for yourselves. In the meantime, you can head over to SoundCloud and check out their former releases.

Wexford singer Ronan Furlong brings forth spacey visuals for ‘Hades Nebula’

Ronan Furlong is back with a brand new song that shows us fantastic visuals and is called ‘Hades Nebula’.

Ronan is an Irish singer-songwriter who writes and performs his own material. He has been writing and playing music for over 30 years and has produced a broad repertoire of highly original and well-received original music.

After learning from Wexford guitar teacher author, playwright, musician and performer Billy Roche, the music bug bit hard. Ronan subsequently received lessons from Mexican guitar virtuoso, Rodrigo y Gabriella, whom he met after one of their early performances in Dublin. This is an artist who loves to learn.

With lots of solos, this is a guitar-featured track and that is always something that is welcome is this age of electronic music. This is all about opening up your mind and looking to the beauty in the sky. Instead of slouching on the couch with our phones, we should look to the galaxy for guidance in life.

Stream here on YouTube to see these wonderful visuals.
