Dublin-based singer/songwriter Pastiche is set to release her debut single, “Chasing Down the Fame” on November 20th.

The explosive electro-pop song features driving synths, energetic drums, and powerful vocals from Pastiche. 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. 

About the song, Pastiche says, “The song addresses the idea of achieving fame as a subjective journey; it almost never looks the same. I also think there’s a difference between fame and significance. Fame is usually an accident, but you can claim your own significance. I think this track is me doing that: showcasing my sound and trying to prove myself.”

She goes on to say, “I wanted to address not only where I hope to go but also where I came from. The line “I’ll show them what they made of me” is about all the rejections and “no’s” that have led me to where I am, developing thick skin, and needing to rely on my own self-belief.” 

On the Irish pop scene, Pastiche says, “Pop in Ireland always seems to be imported. There’s very few successful female Irish pop artists. The scene isn’t here – so we have to create it. Radio stations are playing Dua Lipa every five minutes- so why can’t we have Irish pop instead? I want to help break that barrier.” 

Though Pastiche performs with a live band, this track was completed remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic with producer Fergal Mullen (Jupiter Parks). The vocals were tracked at Beardfire Music. 

Pastiche’s sound combines dark pop, electronic pop, a rebellious club kid sound, and theatrical influences. She started stage school and musical theatre at a young age, and performed all over Ireland. Her love for music developed in school, and she studied vocals at BIMM Dublin, where she spent four years learning about the industry and honing her craft. She has already received attention for her writing ability, receiving the runner up prize in the Hotpress Now We’re Talking songwriting competition 2019. She is now in the process of recording and releasing her original music.

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. Stephen now spends his time between Ireland and Denmark, and gigs regularly across Scandinavia.

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).
