PREMIERE: Danny G & the Major 7ths - Believing feat. Grainne McCarthy

We're delighted to give you an exclusive first listen to 'Believing', the 2nd single off the forthcoming album 'The Lookout' by Danny G & the Major 7ths, featuring Grainne McCarthy.

Funky riffs, positive lyrics and a distorted flute solo! This song is about the renewed optimism that comes with entering a new relationship and an almost newfound spiritual belief in love, life and humanity. 'The Lookout' is a collection of songs featuring the cream of Irish soul musicians and several wonderful guest vocalists.

Danny G & the Major 7ths will launch their new single, ‘Believing’ at The Underground, Dublin on Friday, 17th May - with support from up and coming jazz/hip-hop quintet, Shy Mascot.

If you're a fan of this keep your eyes peeled for more off the album, ‘The Lookout’ set to be released over the coming year.

NEW RELEASE - TANJIER: 'LIGHTS'

The summer is well and truly over, but with Tanjier’s new release 'Lights', the sweet festival vibes are still pleasantly lingering. A perfect track to get us over the mid-week hump and reminding us of the raw Irish talent by which we are surrounded, 'Lights' is an exploration of indie pop and electronic melodies that mingle into a magestic track. This year the Dublin-based trio have been selling out shows and making festival debuts, which is why we are buzzed to have them come headline our next event at Bello Bar, Dublin. Their live performance promises to incorporate unique audiovisual and light shows - an onstage spectacle not to be missed. Today we are listening to 'Lights' on repeat and visualising it unfold on the Bello Bar stage on 29th November, and we cannot wait to witness it. It's an exciting time for Tanjier, Oíche, and the future of Irish music.
