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.

Omonoko- Weight in Gold🎸

Video Release date 11th December, 2020
Watch here:


Follow Instagram Twitter Facebook Spotify Soundcloud

New four-piece OMONOKO are fast becoming one of Ireland’s most exciting new exports with a rare timeless quality to their music that eschews genre and categorisation.  

Their new single ‘Weight In Gold’ incorporates an addictive bass line, simple but effective electronic sounds, hooky guitar lines and falsetto vocals that deliver a chilled, yet uplifting track. Lyrically the song focuses on an individual’s need to have a break from the outside world, to re-establish a connection with themselves, and to focus on what their next move in life will be.

It is an exotic and dreamy exploration inwards, that moves from washed out minimal moments to an infectious chorus refrain that gets further and further embedded under the skin as the track escalates. Living in different parts of Europe but coming back together in Newry, Ireland, the different members of OMONOKO have brought fresh experimentation and a rich melting pot of influences and experiences together with a pure and stunning result.

With streams racking up to over 3,000,000 on music licensing website Jamendo and their track ‘Empty Streets’ catching a sync wave on BBC Sport’s highlights of the six nations Rugby in 2019, plus acclaim from BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson and top Irish tastemaker blogs Nialler 9 and Chord Blossom, OMONOKO are carving out an intriguing and interesting career for themselves. It shouldn’t be long before the band are no longer Ireland’s best kept secret and are on their way to world domination in a similar lane to artists like Alt-J, Maribou State and Milky Chance.

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.

The song is a profession and promise of love, of looking back at how far you’ve come and also forward to the future.

Fly the Nest says, ““Be Mine” was a wedding present for my best mate. I wrote the song for his wedding and performed it at the reception. I also recorded it for them to make the gift something they could always look back on and remember the day.”

He goes on to say, “The song got an amazing reaction at the reception. I think a lot of people, and not just the newlyweds, could relate to the song: a profession and promise of love, of looking back at how far you’ve come but also forward to the future and growing old together. This made me decide to officially release the song.” 

The song was recorded, mixed, and mastered in Cabin Space Studios with Gavin Doyle. 

Dublin native Stephen Cooper started playing music at a young age, performing in various bands before starting solo project Fly the Nest, a name inspired by moving on from a previous musical journey and the 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.

Strings & Things- Fuaim Gathering🪕

Irish neo-trad four-piece Strings & Things are set to release their new single, “Fuaim Gathering.” This song is the second single of their upcoming album, The Unsolicited Dance.

The single, as well as the band’s upcoming album, was written and recorded while the band was on a nine-month residency as a house band at Raglan Road, an Irish entertainment bar in Disney World Orlando, Florida. It was recorded by bass player Eoin Salmon and mastered by Aidan Cunningham. 

Banjo player Sean says, “The tunes were inspired by a music festival being organized by some friends of ours that were set to take place in Summer 2017. It was called Fuaim Gathering, and they spent months leading up to it preparing and building. On the morning of the festival, it was cancelled by authorities who cited the “Unsolicited Dance Act,” a bullshit law that regulates outdoor gatherings. To commemorate the festival that never was, I wrote these tunes.”

Based in Tipperary, Strings & Things meld genres of rock, folk, pop, and trad to create their unique sound. For the last three years, they have been entertaining audiences around Ireland, the UK, and the US with energetic live performances, a huge repertoire of traditional music, and thoughtful, innovative original music. The band consists of James O’Meara Ryan (guitar & vocals), Eoin Shelly (percussion & vocals), Sean Mongey (banjo, mandolin, whistle & backing vocals), and Eoin Salmon (bass).
