This is a new song and video called Bleached Blonde from our sophomore album ‘Heart Swell’ (out on Graveface Records on June 8th)

It’s a Summer-y, fuzzy-pop song and the video features a very beautiful looking Lahinch, a 10 year old surfer girl, an animated dream sequence, and an ironing board….

The Saw Doctors – Everyday

A song about abortion and Ireland From The Sawdoctors’ third album Same Oul Town (1995) with a new video by Cian Brennan.

Ana Cosgrave, creator of the REPEAL project jumpers, writes

“This is the only song written about the women who travel Everyday from Ireland to access abortion services abroad and this collaboration with the Saw Doctors brings these women’s stories to life. In it we see a diverse range of Irish women, all of whom are voting Yes tomorrow, representing the women who travel. For me this song is a clarion call for care and compassion.”

Sean Clancy writes:

“I wanted to get in touch to share a link to a video I made for the new single from The Minutes. The track is called ‘Love, Hope and Other Plans’ and the video features Peter McGann and John Doran as two Mormon missionaries on the streets of Dublin going about their daily routine. Violence looms as one of them is grows very tired of the other. The video was shot, directed and edited by myself.”

Oliver Cole & Niamh Farrell – These City Lights

A moving duet written and recorded to help raise awareness on repealing the Eighth Amendment.

Oliver writes:

The song looks at the issue from the perspective of a couple who find themselves having to travel to the UK to access safe medical care.
We get to see from their point of view how this feels and how it impacts on them personally.
The song is a duet as I really wanted to represent both the male and female viewpoint in a realistic and sympathetic way.

Áirc Damhsa – Tuatha Dé Danann

Edwina Guckian writes:

At our dance club – Áirc Damhsa Dance Club – we regularly hear about traditions and the way people used to dance years ago Vs today.

One child questioned why we only ever hear about the dancers from a 100 or more years ago? What about Cú Chlainn or Queen Meabh, how did they dance? And this is what inspired our latest work. Enjoy!

Music: Jiggy

Video location: Mount Allen Organic Farm
