Fia Moon – Let This Go

You may remember Irish singer/songwriter Fia Moon (top) as one of the voices on the recent chart-topping cover of The Cranberries hit Dreams by Irish Women In Harmony.

Now she’s back with a new single and lyric video.

Fia says:

“It’s about accepting things for what they are and learning to let go of things that don’t make you happy. When you’re so comfortable in a situation, it can be really hard to detach yourself and recognize that you need to walk away and let go of the things that are ultimately holding you down.”

Nick says: Moon struck.

Good times.

Happy Friday.

It’s the weekend!

That means another music competition.

After a series of great underrated entries over the past few months, it’s time for a slight change of theme.

Taking my cue from commenter ‘seanydelight’ (thank you), this week’s question is: what do you think is the most overrated song?

Here’s mine.

BK Pepper – Colours

Don’t shoot the piano player.

Dublin contemporary classical composer BK Pepper (top) performs his new single ahead of the release of his album Territories next month.

Influenced by the likes of Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm, Pepper combines supreme melody with real emotion.

BK says:

“The theme of Territories reflects how borders have become increasingly visible in recent years, with migration, trade disputes and now a global pandemic reshaping how territories are perceived, defined and enforced around the world.”

Nick says: Worth his salt.
