Dublin based alternative-rock band Wild Tibetan Monks are set to release a heartfelt single, “Lying Next to You.” The nostalgic indie-rock song features semi-sweet vocals and a spacey instrumental arrangement that compliments the story being told. With a refrain that’s reflective and candid, the song builds to a driving bridge, and a somewhat unresolved close. 

Sean says, “The song is about not just physically lying next to someone, but lying in not telling them the truth. It’s about feeling trapped, not knowing what to do. It’s about being conflicted, having all these emotions that you want to share with someone but can’t.”

The song explores how difficult expression can be- even with someone who you truly care about. When things are good you think it’ll feel that way forever. Once your favourite toy, eventually you get put back on the shelf (“It really hurts since you put me down”).

The song closes with feelings of regret. Sean says, “The song depicts feeling conflicted about what you should say and what you should share. At the end of the song, there’s regret. The narrator knows they should have been honest, should have said how they felt, should have spilled their heart out.”

The song was written by bass player and vocalist Sean, who then brought it to the band. It was recorded in Hellfire Studios when the band returned from two years in Australia. 

Wild Tibetan Monks are Sean (bass, vocals), Ringo (guitar), and Liam (drums). They met and banded in college in 2011 and performed together for several years. In 2018 the band traded Dublin for Perth, Australia for a two-year journey of music and exploration. The band toured around Western Australia, and had a varied lineup over the years, including different singers and a horn section. They also began recording their original music. The global pandemic forced the band to move back to Ireland, where they are now focused on recording and releasing their original material.

Fly The Nest- Old Street Lover🎸

Release date 12th February 2021

Singer/ songwriter Fly the Nest is set to release a cinematic new single, “Old Street Lover.” The song features a driving beat, wailing guitars, and Fly the Nests’ signature wide, cinematic soundscape. Rhythmic guitars and Fly the Nest’s powerful vocals carry the fierce, energetic song. 

Fly the Nest says, “This song is about having a connection with someone that’s ultimately lost. Though it hurts to see it end, you really do wish them the best and hope they find what they’re looking for.”

The verses of the song tell the story of the day that it all comes to an end. They outline hard conversations that are had and looking back on shared memories. The narrator knows that they have to let it go. The uplifting chorus expresses hope that the other person finds happiness, comfort, and satisfaction with what they decide to do. 

Though you’re parting ways, you still see so much potential in the other person, heard in the lines, “you’ve got it!” And though you’ll miss them, you genuinely still believe in them and their dreams. Maybe you’ll even find your way back to each other one day. 

The song was produced and recorded by Peter Doherty in Tyrone, NI. 

Dublin native Fly the Nest (Stephen Cooper) started playing music at a young age, performing in various bands before starting solo project Fly the Nest, a name inspired by the many adventures music has led him on. As well as writing and releasing his own music, Stephen also writes for sync, and says that writing for film and TV has opened up another facet of his creativity. Stephen now spends his time between Ireland and Denmark, and gigs regularly across Scandinavia. 2021 is proving to be another big year for Stephen, who is known for wide, cinematic songs and precise songwriting.

MASK- Get On Your Knees🎸

Release date 8th February 2021

Belfast Blues Rockers MASK are kicking the doors in and raising the decibels with their new
single ‘Get On Your Knees’. Made up of ingredients of Martin Luther King, blistering drums, and
throttling fuzz guitars – this ferocious track is bound to be a contender for rock-stomper of the year.


Having suffered a loss in Belfast late last year, MASK leader H Humphrey decided to escape
civilisation and left for Peru. Feeling enlightened on his return, he approached producer Michael
Mormecha and asked if he could come in and make a new MASK record. Though his new
studio, Tree Song Studios, wasn’t finished and was little more than a building site, having learned
of H’s loss, he agreed and they set to work! ‘Get On Your Knees’, has an utterly unique feel as a
result, literally hanging microphones across wooden planks and makeshift ceilings, capturing a
sense of unequivocal power and rawness!

Leaning heavily on their blues-retro-rock tendencies, the new single is instantly comparable to the early sound of The Black Keys and The White Stripes to the more millennial-glam-rock feel of
stadium-act MUSE.


According to MASK, ‘Get On Your Knees’ is about awakening the beast that lies in all of us and
embracing our inner Viking!”


The rock duo are led by H Humphrey (guitar/vocals -from Belfast) along with lifelong
friend, Craig Coppock (guitar/vocals from Liverpool), combining to make up a band who are the
antithesis of your typical rock stars – they describe themselves as unapologetically un-cool BUT
always manage to release exciting music that breaks the mould of the everyday indie band.

Dirty Mike are an indie alt rock/punk trio from Glasgow Scotland and have recently released “Campus Queen”. It is a catchy indie rock/pop punk anthem reminiscing on a fun tale of a night when first coming of age and going out in Glasgow. Depicting the highs and excitement of the evening laced with the feeling of regret the morning after. A song much needed to remind us of better times while a lot of clubs have been shut for almost a year now in the UK.

It’s a folk pop acoustic song and it’s very emotional and it’s very sincere. It was produced by Viscose who is an amazing producer and it was written by Sarah Daly. The artwork was drawn by Eileen Rattigan who is an amazing artist. 
Ginger Twice wants to bring back the acoustic music into the music industry as they feel that there is a lot of songs out there that has too much production in their songs. Ginger Twice believe that less is more when it comes to music.
