5 new Irish songs you need to hear

Sweet neo-soul, hip hop and experimental. Irish music is showing its diversity.


Over the weekend Ireland’s wealth of talent were busy releasing their newest pieces of work. If you were too pre-occupied with gargle and brunch, don’t fret. We have you covered. Here are five new Irish songs that you might have missed over the weekend.

MathMan – ‘Be As One’

After making the crowd sweat at the launch of District Magazine Issue 002 on Thursday alongside Mango, MathMan has now released a new beat.

Listen to it in full below.

DoubleScreen – Time and Time and Time

Dublin’s DoubleScreen has linked up with comedy outfit Chaps Eye for a new video. The visuals are filmed and directed by Oisin Bickley from Chaps Eye, and sees a migration away from hip hop for the producer.

The track is taken from his ‘Wasta Wasta‘ EP.  Watch ‘Time and Time and Time’ below.

AikJ – ‘Heights’

Another artist we were proud to have perform at the launch of Issue 002. His smooth voice is as flawless live as it is in the studio, and over the weekend he released a new track.

‘Heights’ comes just before Aik embarks on a busy summer of touring. Check it out below.

Creative Crime – ‘Give Me Your Pain’

Last year we visited Crimes Against and God Creative in their studio in Chocolate Factory. Then working separately, but collaborating regularly, we premiered their track ‘Godzillah’.

Now the pair have combined their efforts more formally to release music as Creative Crime. They’ve now released the moving video for ‘Give Me Your Pain’, starring John Connors.

They’re launching the single on May 19 in Whelan’s. Click here for more.

Emzee A – ‘Time Flies’

“…set in Dublin co-starring my two younger brothers as the whole idea of the song is how fast they are growing and how amazing it is to see them blossom.”

Emzee A has teamed up with the ever-elusive Carrot Gold Industries for a new video.

Watch the visuals in full below.
