Castlecomer || Cosmos & Creature || Shenna


CastlecomerJudy (+ All Of The Noise)

With a new album and a half dozen upcoming tour dates, Castlecomer have plenty to be celebrating to be doing. But instead, they're hard at work releasing killer tracks like Judy, a track portraying a taboo relationship from the weaker partner's point of view. It's the tune described by the band as the "most sinister" of their latest 'All Of The Noise' EP. With a little bit of unrequited love and a whole heap head-bopping electric beats, this is a dark song in the most enticing way possible.

With vocals that drawl their way through the tracks, this group have a style that's hard to miss and equally as difficult to top. It's just cool, effortlessly so. Lead vocalist, Bede, suggests that this EP has an overarching theme of escapism and, quite frankly, this is the perfect album to escape into.

To celebrate this head turner album, Castlecomer are heading out on an east coast tour and are working hard on producing a polished show. Or as Bede explains, "In the past we would scribble down a few songs and then change the set completely while on stage, but we’re trying to make it a bit more smooth and professional now.  There’s talk of having a 3 track acoustic part of the set in the middle, and also of doing some house parties during the tour, but we’ll have to map it out with our agent first…!"

Cosmos & Creature - Young 

This soft bopper is a an enthralling mix of heavy beats, a little tambourine (ah, how happy is my happy?!) and the captivating vocals that tie it all together. Just in time for some summer dancing, this is a groove to add to any mix, playlist or compilation. It'd just be such a shame to miss out on jamming to this tune.

Cosmos & Creature weren't on my radar until this track, but with a sure-hit like Young don't make the same mistake as me. Keep an eye out, your ears ready and get set for some groovin' with this gem. Kudos to them for this!

Keep groovin' here.


Shenna - So Low

Oh, Shenna, I think you might just have my heart. Quite the fan of anything with some electro vibes (thanks big brother for that!) So Low is the break up, heartache without the angst. Hallelujah! An upbeat, layered track with an R'n'B inspired sound underlying it all. As introductions go, this is perhaps one of the best - if you haven't feasted on Shenna before, start here and dig in.

The unassuming tune is one that covers a hell of a lot in three minutes, forty-six seconds. But mostly, it shows off Shenna as she should be. This is a gal who knows what she's doing, where she's headed and is doing it herself. Invite her to the party, she will absolutely not disappoint.

Avoid feeling low here.
