Pastiche, a 22 year old pop singer songwriter from Dublin, releases her second single “Heaven” on Friday February 5th 2021 on all streaming services. With tones of Robyn about her, Pastiche has a fire in her for pop music which explodes in her brand new single that is edgy with a dash of badass female pop empowerment added!

Pastiche cut her experience from an early age for performance. Her love of performing started in stage school at the age of 4 where she developed a love of musical theatre and practiced singing, tap dancing, jazz and modern contemporary dance. When the time came to make a decision about a career, Pastiche wasted no time and enrolled in BIMM where she studied Vocal Performance and it was there where she decided exactly the Artist she wanted to be!

Speaking about the Irish pop scene, Pastiche says, “…it always seemed to be imported. There are very few successful female true Irish pop artists. The scene just isn’t here – so we have created it! I want to help break that barrier. It’s not about down playing Irish male musicians successes either. It’s about female representation here in Ireland and allowing us a platform. ” 

Pastiche’s sound combines dark pop, electronic pop, a rebellious club kid sound, and theatrical influences. Her explosive electro-pop sound features driving synths, energetic drums, and powerful vocals.

The engaging production and layered vocals create a dynamic track that establishes Pastiche as a force to be reckoned with in the Dublin pop scene.

Produced with Fergal Mullen, tracked, mixed and mastered with Beard Fire Music.

Mark Duggan- Promenade Firework Show🎸

Waterford based singer/songwriter Mark Duggan is set to release a new single “Promenade Firework Show.” The indie-rock tune features layered guitars, a retro drum machine, and a nostalgic, 80’s rock feel.

Mark says, “My friends and I would always go to the firework show at the end of the summer in Tramore as kids. The song is a fictional story about a couple who do the same, and try to use the evening to rekindle their relationship, to shed themselves of the baggage they picked up along the way, start off clean and get on the right track.”

Mark was messing around with drum machine loops, and liked the combination of a static drum loop with a rough and ready tele-guitar sound. The drums were looped consistently while the guitar would go in and out with a looser feeling. He was inspired by Bruce Springsteen’s 1983 home demos, which would have used the same method.

Mark says, “A lot of things in the song work in pairs, to reflect the couple that the story is about. The lead guitar is doubled, with different effects on each, as is the rhythm guitar and keyboard; everything has its related pair. It’s meant to be a metaphor for relationships: sometimes two people work perfectly together in tangent, and sometimes they don’t.” The song was recorded and produced in Mark’s home studio.

Mark is a singer/songwriter from Waterford. His music combines folk and indie with electronic elements, complete with clever lyricism and thoughtful songwriting. He is inspired by the likes of Bob Dylan, Bruce Sprinsteen, and Joni Mitchel, and has been playing and writing music since he was young. He started releasing music in 2018 with the single “Hey Blue.” In 2019 he released “Long Way Home,” twelve continuous songs with no breaks that tells the story of a character who’s been away for work for a while driving home late at night, trying to get there as quickly as possible. His most recent release was the acoustic single “As The Sun Hits The Day Down” in February 2020.

Dublin-based singer/ songwriter Honas is set to release a powerful indie/folk/pop tune, “I Can Get You Out of This.” With reverby guitars, ambient synths, and energetic drums, Honas creates a cinematic soundscape complete with a compelling vocal performance.

Honas says, “The song is about having a friend or loved one thats having a hard time mentally. It’s about standing on the outside, wishing you could help but not quite sure how. It’s about feeling helpless.

He goes on to say, “I started writing the song about five years ago, but then moved away from it. I had an experience in a similar vein that brought the song back into my head. As I started living it again, I completed the song in a new light.” 

Sonically, he says, “The hypnotic acoustic riff carries the whole way through the song. I wanted to create an atmosphere that conveyed the song’s meaning. I’ve always been drawn to ambient sounds, swells and evolving tones, to create something really immersive. We wanted an energetic, aggressive, chaotic drum sound, the result being a mix of programmed sounds and real drums.”

The song was recorded by Adam Redmond in Flaked Studios, where Adam helped sonically bring the song to life. The pair were inspired by the likes of Bon Iver, Dermot Kennedy, and Ben Howard.

The Irish singer-songwriter combines honest, raw songwriting with an ambient sonic palette. He has written and produced with several artists, as well as being a key part of Irish indie-outfit Orchid Collective playing bass and songwriting. The band was the outlet for his music for many years, though he was still writing on his own. He ended up with a group of songs he was happy with, and came across producer Adam Redmond. In 2019 he turned his attention to his own debut album. His first three singles have amassed over 1.7 million streams on Spotify, landed on several Spotify editorial playlists, and gained acclaim from several major blogs and publications.
