New Irish Music - Track of the Week Nominees

We Cut Corners
The latest batch of tracks as part of a new collaboration with New Irish Music. Below is the crème de la crème of this week, with 7 artists nominated for Track of the Week.

The four winners of Track of the Week will then go on to the Track of the Month, which was won by Funeral Suits in January.

The winner will be announced on STL over the weekend.



The Revellions - 'Sigh's' 

Swinging 60s-esque track from these Dublin rockers, backed with footage from their recent tour in France. The four-piece have been doing the round since 2006, and released their eponymous debut album in 2008.



We Cut Corners - 'Dumb Blonde' 

Stripped down acoustic piece with soaring vocals from the guitar/drums duo. The pair recently performed as part of the The Certain Three tour and, would you believe, are both teachers by day (fact of the day).




Retarded Cop - 'Van Man' 

The latest project from DJ Gaz Le Rock, Retarded Cop is churning out a track a week of incessantly catchy punk-rock tunes which are mental and brilliant in equal proportions. Can't get this out of my head.




KMCG - 'Parasite' 

Sombre lament taken from the Positively Negative EP which you can download for free from Bandcamp.


 


The Whipround - 'Shanty Town' 

There hasn't been much Ska emerging as of late but here's your fill from this Bray ensemble.

Leeward Side - 'Vernon the Messiah' 

Slowly building track from this Belfast four-piece which harks back to yesteryear. Download their debut EP 'Fashion Something for free from Bandcamp. 


 


Furlo - 'Eyelash' 

An accomplished, driven tune from the Northern Irish five-piece. Taken from second EP 'Signature' which was released last year.
