In this edition of IndieRE from Near FM we hear the latest music from across the island of Ireland. The journey in Irish music this week starts with the unique The Eskies' sound that blends sea soaked waltz and Italian tarantella. Chilli Flake will bring us to the lovely town of Grangecon in Wicklow County in order to enjoy a bit of trip-hop music. A bit of breath of hip hop fresh air from Waterford thanks to the 21-year-old drummer/rapper Alex Gough.
Also from the South of Ireland, Cork, James Keegan will sing about love for family and friends. We also hear some rock music produced by NewDad, from Galway, with the new single Angel, a song inspired by the TV show Euphoria. This episode highlights the immense influence and variety of the independent music sector in Ireland's creative output, among many other things.
