In a quiet mood?

Dublin musician Úna Keane (top) played an unforgettable gig in the Pepper Canister Church, Dublin 2 earlier this month.

Now she has uploaded one of those live hypnotic piano pieces onto her YouTube channel with an accompanying video (above) featuring archive footage of kids playing in Victorian England in 1901.

Mesmerising.

Her most recent album is In The Deep.

Nick says: Ivory power.

Kieran RingSatellites

Gasping for some uptempo beats to dance away the boredom?

Let Kieran Ring (top) be your guide.

The former lead singer of Cork-based band Neon Atlas returns with a banging single from his forthcoming solo EP.

Jota Gambuzino directs the trippy promo.

Kieran says:

“Satellites is about not being able to sleep, thinking about the future whilst watching a clear night sky , being inspired by it but also wishing you could disappear into it escaping the feeling that you don’t quite fit in.”

Nick says: Shooting star.

Jape – Harrington Street

Feels like teen spirit.

Richie Egan aka Jape takes us back to the Dublin of his childhood on this highly evocative new single from his ambitious Sentinel album.

Director Jamie Delaney talks us through the song’s unforgettable video.

“The moment I heard Harrington Street, I saw an image of bittersweet teenage love. The uplifting melancholy of the lyrics and the ethereal tones instantly brought me to the back alleys of youth.

“Where giddy anticipation, nervous insecurity and the paranoid self-consciousness all mixed. I wanted the story to revolve around these seminal but yet universal moments. The moments we all remember from that awkward teenage love.”

Nick says: Teenage dreams so hard to beat.

Looking for drama?

The new video from Corkonian singer/songwriter Mick Flannery (top) is frighteningly intense.

Fellow music industry stalwart Steve Wall (looking disturbingly like Breaking Bad‘s Walter White here) stars as a troubled soul in this promo directed in moody monochrome by Sinead McDevitt.

Nick says: Stunning.
