Hybrazil is a rock band with influences from pop, soul and funk based in the city of Galway, Ireland. Born in 2018, the band is formed by Irish vocalist Orla Coughlan and Brazilians Luan Lopes, on drums and Willians Maxwell on guitars.
In their most recent single “Orange Soles” the song portrays the difficult daily life of a person with serious health problems and lets the listener imagine and interpret each scene of this song as if it were a book. All of this accompanied by an instrumental emotional and melodic basis.
Hybrazil was born on the streets of Galway, specifically on the famous Shop Street, on June 28, 2018. At the time, composed by Philippe Macedo, Matheus Novais and Willians Maxwell, the Power trio made the nights and early nights playing and attracting more and more audiences. In December 2018, Orla Coughlan took over the band’s vocals, taking over from Philippe who had left Ireland and left for Portugal where he continues to play in the streets of Porto. After Orla entered, HyBrazil started not only playing on streets, but also in pubs and parties around the city of Galway. On June 23, 2019 Luan Lopes took over from Matheus, who was returning to Brazil to study and play in bars in Goiás and São Paulo. On January 9, 2020, HyBrazil released its first video clip on Youtube with the single “Tainted Love” and shortly thereafter it would have its first original song “Burning Desire” Released on Spotify on March 26, 2020. Today is the band’s fourth single.
Salthill is one of my favourite places to go for a walk. I went there yesterday and it was very busy as it was a sunny day. I went with one of my best friends Niamh after we went for brunch. We walked the prom and went on the ferris wheel that is beside Leisureland before buying a cool drink at Centra and sitting by the sea. The Salthill prom in County Galway is a lovely place for a walk, especially when the weather is good. ☀️
County Clare is one of my favourite counties in Ireland. It is not far from County Galway and there are lots of small towns and villages. The countryside is picturesque and very rural Ireland. County Clare is very popular with (American) tourists because of its scenery. Clare is notorious for its flora, fauna and landscape 🦌🌿 I go to County Clare often with friends and family and was there recently. I have been to County Clare on many school trips and family holidays and it brings back many memories🥪 I plan on visiting Bunratty Castle soon with friends. Below are a list of some of my Clare favourites.
Other places in County Clare I recommend visiting are Ballyvaughan, The Aillwee Caves, Lisdoonvarna (if matchmaking is what you’re into), Bunratty Castle & Folk Park, Shannon town.
