Then you’re going to love Dubliner Bobbi Arlo’s new single, which delights in listing all the succulent berries nature has provided.
This is feelgood playful pop with a mischievous smile on its face.
Bobbi (top) says of the video:
“I shot it with director Bobby Zithelo and producer Louis Maxwell. It was such a fun shoot. I invited a bunch of my friends to Lou’s studio and we just messed around for a few hours and the result was the ‘Berries’ video. A lot of the shots were improvised, and it came out great! The video was edited by my golden girl Niamh Bryson, who did an amazing job.”
If you’re looking to spend an enchanted evening listening to mesmerising minimalist piano music, then the place to be is piano virtuoso Úna Keane’s concert in the Black Gate Cultural Centre in Francis Street, Galway, this Sunday at 8pm
Una will be playing compositions from her wonderful sophomore album In The Deep.
Support on the night comes from Lowli who will also be duetting with Una.
So begins the new single from Dundalk troubadour David Keenan (top), who rounds off a busy year with a rousing celebration of the hobos he meets on his travels.
“I wrote this song on a train from Amsterdam [Netherlands] to Cologne [Germany], finished it as the train ceased to move, brought it in me to a Chapel in Cologne, sang it for the first time, left the Chapel with a liberated German bible under my arm as a souvenir.
“Reconciling my act of theft with the thought that it would be a useful reference for a line or two at a later date, and that the greater good must prevail…”
David’s debut album A Beginner’s Guide To Bravery drops on January 10.
Now based in Melbourne, Australia, the straight-shooting singer/songwriter visits our hemisphere when he plays The American Bar, Belfast, tonight; Dublin’s DC Club on Camden Row, Dublin 2, on Sunday; and Coughlans in Cork on December 5.
In the video (above) for his new single, Andy channels his inner John Lennon as he goes for a walk by the pier.
Looks like Tony Bennett wasn’t the only one who left his heart in San Francisco.
The new song from Roisin O (top left) and John Broe (top right) aka Thanks Brother is a love-gone-wrong tale with a video shot while on tour in the US including panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the shining West Coast city by the bay.
Call It Love features on the duo’s new debut EP.
You can catch them live tomorrow night in Dundalk’s Spirit Store with Ham Sandwich; in Galway’s Roisin Dubh on December 5; and supporting The Coronas in Killarney INEC on December 29.
“Honey Wine is a song which recalls the best times spent with the best friends, those amazingly good days spent playing music, laughing, drinking and sharing memories around West Clare.
“Some of those friends are now living their own lives abroad. Others have since tragically died to suicide. These friends influenced my life choices, be it with pursuing music as a career or simply soaking up the juice of everyday life.
“The key takeaway is about cherishing those happy memories that you still have.”
