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.

“JEJE” paying homage to her parents native country over a Romantic love song.    

HXNEY is an Irish raised artist who is a Nigerian descendant, with both parents from Nigeria. 

HXNEY decided to implement her native language (Yoruba) into her recent single to pay homage to the culture.

HXNEY who currently lives in the UK, travels to Dublin regularly for creative work and gatherings with friends and family.

HXNEY is a versatile artist and songwriter with the ability to tap into any genre “effortlessly”. She thrives however, in Modern Alternative RnB as opposed to the traditional RnB market. She is heavily influenced by Frank Ocean, due to his free thinking, along with the likes of James Fauntleroy, Lianne La Havas, Brandy, Jhené Aiko.

Fans and followers will notice that the sound of her music changes with every release due to her experimental nature, with her main strengths being her melodies, harmonies, tone, vocal range and arrangements. 

JEJE 

The song Jeje was inspired by a brief relationship that had progressed too quickly.

The song is a break up letter packaged with soothing vocals delivered on a chilled acoustic instrumental.

Hxney says ‘‘The song was written from a pure state of consciousness, where I let my emotions flow freely. Jeje took me about 10mins to write unlike my previous work, and soon became one of my favourite songs of mine. 

As we wrap up 2020 and as I start my new era  as an artist, I felt like it was only right to share this with my listeners in order to introduce them to a fresh approach from me and connect with me on a different level”

The meaning behind JEJE (Pronounced Jeh-Jeh)

Jack Devlin holds the attention of any crowd, with a magnetic stage presence and undeniable energetic talent. He is a young singer songwriter with dynamic original music played both acoustically and with a full band. Alongside regularly playing in bars across Ireland, Jack
headlines original gigs and spots at festivals, and accrues loyal and lively fans, often also supporting high class Irish and international acts, such as David Keenan and Hermitage Green. His music is reminiscent of Paolo Nutini, Jeff Buckley, Kings of Leon and Ben Howard among others; but with a raw, full voice that dips and soars, Jack creates an individually distinctive sound.
Influences from folk, rock and indie genres are intertwined with a low-fi twist on many original tracks, resulting in a varied and recognisably unique musical catalogue. Working with other local artists on their tracks, and founding the original music night ‘Evening Noise,’ Jack is
quickly becoming a respected influence within the musical community. Recently cherry picking some of the most gripping and addictive tracks from his catalogue of over 40 originalsongs, Jack has been working with producers Michael Mormeca and Phil Dalton to release his first EP in 2020.

‘Summer’
This song’s meaning is how life carries you through the years, how things within life evolve, drafting moments and memories from past summers and admiring the future in those moments of euphoria. Growing individually reflecting on moments of joy and even anxiety of the future as continues to evolve for us as individuals this song also has a feeling of relief and an uplift In darker times, knowing there’s always a better day ahead.

Recording Process
As I was writing this song, I was hanging out with my little brother and he was chatting in the background when I was recording the voice note. We listened back a few weeks later. I really liked the vibe it gave so I took some recordings of our conversation and put it into the song.
I am an avid Bike lover, so I suggested the idea of having a bike chain noise to add to the groove of the song Micheal took the idea and made some magic with it, it’s just subtle but I find it really cool, the ending of the song we actually made in the studio and it was a off the whim first take was cool to have that little bit of magic happen in the studio.

Pastiche- Chasing Down The Fame🥁

Release date 20th November, 2020

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.
