The days are blurring into one for Gaff on ‘Friday on a Tuesday’

Words: Dylan Murphy

It’s another hit from the rising multi-instrumentalist.

The west of Ireland isn’t traditionally heralded for its influence on the intersection of modern music genres, but guitarist and vocalist Gaff is changing that. While evidently inspired by the running hi-hats and guitar riffs of Jean Dawson and the vocal inflections of Bakar, Gaff is carving out a lane that could only be his own.

Following the release of his sun-kissed singles ‘ALL DAY’, ‘Last Night’ and ‘How it Goes’, the young upstart has returned with a new glistening single ‘Friday on a Tuesday’.

Friday on a Tuesday’ sees the weekend’s wavey energy seep into the following week as his freewheeling instrumentation takes on a life of its own.

Gaff was selected as part of our ‘Future of Irish Music 2021‘ feature alongside a host of other homegrown acts that are ready to take the year by storm.
