ZAPHO – DO LIKE I DO (Official Video)

ZAPHO released her debut single ‘Do Like I Do’ on iTunes, Spotify, Google, Apple, Deezer, etc. through Distrokid. From Rathfarnham, Dublin, 25-year-old singer, songwriter, musician, producer and performer ZAPHO (aka Ele Breslin) writes the kind of smart, svelte electro-pop/soul songs that arrive only from an intuitive understanding of the form.

Do Like I Do was a long time in the making. Written and produced by ZAPHO, with varying inputs from various producers, Steve McCann, Andy Savours and Steve Osbourne, this single is truly the product of creative collaboration. Reefing Pop by its neck collar, ZAPHO’s debut single is set to turn our senses on their toes, reminding us of what we love about Pop as a genre, while unsettling our expectations of what it should be. Like ZAPHO herself, Do Like I Do, is a standalone piece, but in the same breath the song is a resounding shout-out to that feeling of doing whatever we want to do, whenever we want to do it while owning the confidence of knowing you’re great at what you do. Do Like I Do, was mixed by James Darkin of Dublin’s Herbert Lane Studio and mastered by Pete Maher.

David Burke – Hello Ocean

Touring around Australia was a dream come true for me. I spent as much time as possible swimming in the ocean and marvelling at the ocean life – Whale sharks, turtles and Tiger sharks on the Ningaloo Reef; dolphins in Byron Bay; gorgeous fish of all the colours of the rainbow on the Great Barrier Reef. It truly is a breathtakingly beautiful land & sea and we tried to capture some of that magic in our video. What a gift Mother Nature has given us – I am conscious now more than ever of the need to make a greater and more urgent effort to preserve and live sustainly within our enviornment.

During the trip, as always, I experienced life’s up and down rollercoaster like we all do. This video tries to grab hold of and appreciate the good and positive energy.

I hope you enjoy the video. Music & Adventure are my 2 great passions in life. Ty has done an amazing job packing in so much colour and beauty into a music video.

Thanks to everyone who made the trip so special.

Thanks again to those who helped me create the music – Stephen Shannon, Tom Domican, Aongus Ralston, Max Greenwood and Bill Blackmore.

Danny G & the Major 7ths // Say When feat. Osmojam (Official Video)

Say When is a love song: an apology to a partner for not paying her enough attention, for not listening. Danny G takes the first verse, full of promise and remorse. The female part of the duet is sung by French artist Osmojam who asks for action, not apologies.

On a wider social level, we heard echoes of these feelings in the Repeal movement.

The Republic of Ireland was not listening to its women, and the historic referendum result in May 2018 was experienced by many as an acknowledgement of the pain caused, an apology, and a promise to do better.

Both this movement and the activists involved gave us hope for the future – that our daughters could be raised in a fairer, more just society. There is still much work to be done. I hope this video serves as a small but fitting tribute to everyone involved with the cause, and a celebration of their momentous success.

Alice Robinson – Rise

Having already charmed crowds at a number of Irish festivals including Carrickmacross Arts Festival and Gothic Species Festival, Louth-based artist Alice Robinson is now ready to share her spellbinding debut single.

Exploring the theme of inequality in modern society, ‘Rise’ oozes an overwhelming, stirring emotion.

 Flowing with twinkling hooks and Robinson’s soaring, cinematic vocals, it’s driven by a subtle, haunting power and grandiose ethereal aura.

 Bringing to mind the beguiling musicality of the likes of Tori Amos or PJ Harvey, ‘Rise’ is an epic, and truly immersive, debut from the Irish songwriter. (Get in Her Ears, 2018)
