With the endless onslaught of new music every Friday it’s hard to keep up with all the new releases. We’ve curated the essential new albums and projects out today for you to check out.
NewDad – MADRA
NewDad‘s debut album is finally here. The Galway outfit’s 11 track album follows their ‘Waves’ EP and ‘Banshee’ EP and marks a return to their shoegazey origins. The first huge Irish record of the year.
Speaking on the album, Julie said – “Madra meaning dog in Irish explores various difficult parts of the human condition and the idea of the title is that these feelings that come up are sometimes ones you can’t escape, feelings that follow you around like a dog. We had an amazing team around us who helped bring these songs to life and we’re so excited for this album to be out in the world. We hope that people connect with the songs and that Madra can be a comfort to everyone who listens.”
