This follows the narrative of a fallen astronaut searching for Gráinne through a dense forest. The space suit actor Seán T O’Meallaigh dons is the same as the one used in David Bowie’s music video for ‘Blackstar‘…

An album of new music released today by the self-taught minimalist and electro-acoustic composer on the third anniversary of his death.
Conor, from Swinford, County Mayo, performed at festivals including the Electric Picnic, Other Voices and supported Hozier on his Irish tour in 2013.
Conor’s sister, Fiona Walsh who helped to bring The Lucid together said:
“This album is for his fans and by creating this album with his close friend and mentor – Enda Bates who was the producer of Conor’s first EP ‘The Front’, and Rob Farhat who previously worked with Conor – we wanted to remind people of all the different aspects of Conor; as a brother, friend, composer, and artist. The subtle approach to this album will leave his fans in awe of his simplistic beauty.”

A new single from songwriter, singer, musician and producer Zapho (Ele Breslin), from Rathfarnham, Dublin.
Emma Harney writes:
In Water Me, Zapho builds a rich sonic landscape, layered with harmonies, hooks and, strangely, owl hooting. In an ecstatic live performance, it becomes an ode to the thirst for living, breathing and growing. And yet, when all is said and done, this is just really catchy pop and really good fun.
A new single – available from next Monday – from Belfast singer songwriter’s new album Temperance Songs which ‘deals with the theme of alcohol in its many forms’.
A Lock-in For The Damned is about a Dublin venue where musicians and their pals sometimes end up drinking the night away. There’s always a party atmosphere mixed with a good dose of madness and people end up leaving, completely twisted, when it’s daylight….
