3 Irish tracks you need to hear today

Fresh CBAKL, Linco and more.

New music Friday has become a staple of the modern music industry, with Spotify’s influence really taking hold in recent years.

With that said there are large quantities of music dropping weekly, often lacking quality but this week we’ve got 3 certified heaters for you from some of Ireland’s heavy hitters.

These artists have not wasted any time setting the wheels in motion in the new decade, starting as they mean to go on.

CBAKL x Looms. – gods.

Portrush beatsmith CBAKL dropped a stellar project in the shape of ‘Wisdom is Misery’ in 2019 and now he has linked with spitter Looms. for an effort that stays true to their Soundcloud roots. Rapping over CBAKL’s dusty drums and gorgeous keys, Looms. brings his tongue twisting lyricism to the fore in a cut that is the perfect accompaniment for a rainy day.

Alex Gough – FOOL

Following the release of his EP ‘80%’ in the later half of 2019, Waterford drummer and spitter Alex Gough is continuing his hot streak with the release of ‘FOOL’. The production sounds somewhere between a hip hop banger and zany circus-inspired cut. Fat 808s sit under thumping percussion and there’s a wacky, fun loving energy that seeps through his first release of the new decade.

“‘FOOL’ was definitely a spontaneous creation. Sparked while scrolling through different plug ins and sample packs, and coming across one that caught my attention straight away. While waiting for food, we started messing around with it and had the basis of ‘FOOL’ in about half an hour max.”


Having a number of impressive performances as an actor under his belt Ryan Lincoln aka Linco is back in the music game and he’s released an emotive record ‘MISFITS’.

An ode to the confusing and at times conflicting feelings frequently experienced in one’s adolescences, Linco spits over a sample that wheezes ‘Everything is fine’.

It screams exasperation and lays down a marker for what the multi-talented artist is capable of.
