The Altered Hours – Over The Void

#NewMusic from Ireland

It’s been a while since we had a royal fuzz fest on the blog. This one ticks all the boxes, guttural bass, a military sharp snare and ethereally soft vocals that are suddenly unleashed in the chorus in an unrelenting repeating salvo. Some great guitar work throughout to boot.

Sorcha Richardson – 4AM

#NewMusic from Dublin, Ireland x New York, USA

“I dropped my headphones in the harbour, so I hummed your song the whole way home” coos Sorcha Richardson to open her latest pensive, introspective cut ‘4AM’. Musing on her current love prospects, ‘4AM’ is about not blaming yourself anymore when things go wrong, admitting, “I could have tried a little harder, I don’t know, I just like it here alone”.

A finely balanced blend of organic piano sounds and reflective vocals with a synth that edges in the direction of Lil Silva’s V1 but manages to restrain itself just enough. We’re big fans.

Sorcha Richardson ‘4AM’ is out now.
