This week we have three interesting new releases, including the great Soda Blonde, a new release from Sam Wickens and also a new track from The Baines. You can check them out below…
Soda Blonde have recently released their live performance film ‘Love Me World’. It’s 33 minutes long and not your typical live video!
“In the vein of Jonathon Demme’s iconic ‘Stop Making Sense’ and a nod to Lila Avilés’ ’The Chambermaid’ Soda Blonde perform a mix of released and unreleased songs live for their first live performance film, Love Me World”
Sam Wickens – Strange.24
Sam Wickens returns with his first single since the NI Music Prize nominated album All I’ve Seen. It’s slow and brooding with a nice guitar line. He will (hopefully) play the Workmans Club in Dublin on the 1st of April, 2021. Tickets are €14 and can be purchased here.
“Layin’ in the Bayou
I was dreaming ’bout my girl
I left her with a broken heart and
A grudge against the world”
‘Strange.24’ is the lead single from Sam’s forthcoming ‘Watson’ EP, due for release on 5th February 2021.
The Baines – Bare Feet on Grass
Something a little bit country (or at least folky) with three-piece The Baines new single Bare Feet on Grass. It will hopefully put a smile on your face!
When three extremely well-regarded folk musicians came together to form The Raines, great things were bound to happen. Next up is the new song “Barefeet on Grass” that showcases their infectious sound.
Formed after a meeting on Inis Oírr, off the West coast of Ireland, Yvonne Tiernan, Ruth Dillon and Juliana Erkkonen, all talented musicians with eye-opening resumes, the idea to form The Raines was born. The chemistry was instant and fans are going wild over the mix of vocal harmonies, rhythmic strings, honest lyrics with a bit of unexpected Americana added to the mix.
