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.

The Lost Brothers – Come Tomorrow (Official)

The Lost Brothers, Oisin Leech from Navan and Mark McCausland from Omagh, have released a new video and single entitled “Come Tomorrow” ahead of their upcoming Irish Theatre Tour this December. The song is taken from their 2018 album “Halfway Towards A Healing” which has been nominated for Album Of The Year at the upcoming RTE Folk Awards and has received widespread critical acclaim since its release including making The Irish Times’ Best Albums Of 2018. The band will be playing at the awards in Vicar St next Thursday, 25th Oct.

The video is by Tyrone video maker James Coyle, who has combined tour footage filmed on the road with a montage of 1950s TV and B movies which keep the band entertained while they travel from gig to gig.

This is the third video James has done for us” says Mark. “He is a busy cat. He could be in the depths of New Orleans making a documentary on moonshiners, or halfway across the Atlantic Ocean drinking brandy. It captures the song and frames it inside a battered TV from the 50s, like a lost mind frantically flicking through the static, stumbling in and out of consciousness, walking the thin line between dreams and reality. We are sure it means something. We just don’t know what. We love it” says Mark from The Lost Brothers.

The song was produced by Howe Gelb in Tucson is partly inspired by hearing Tim Rose’s self -titled 1967 album which was recommended by a pal Sheffield musician Richard Hawley. 

The song was probably the last addition to Halfway Towards A Healing” remembers Oisin. “The Tim Rose album was a massive influence and the lyrics were written while walking the countryside up around Omagh in the Gortin Glen in County Tyrone. We also had Johnny Cash’s mysterious 1963 Irish Tour in mind when writing the song. We had often been told about this tour and we hear that they recently found the tapes. James, who made the video, added some old 1950s TV footage to some tour footage we had filmed so as to make sure things don’t get too serious.”

The Lost Brothers will Tour Canada in February next and return to Australia in  April 2019.

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)

Plastic Oceans (Official Video)

The Riptide Movement come through with the new hard-hitting video for their environmentally focused “Plastic Oceans”. Recorded in London with producer Chris Coady (Future Islands, Slowdive) there’s a firm backbone of the kind of slow-burning, melodic indie rock that has seen the act build a substantial following in their native Ireland.

This summer sees the band continue with a heavy touring schedule with a series of gigs and festival appearances in coastal areas, using the track to spread the serious environmental message that our beaches, coastlines, rivers, cities and towns need to be kept litter and plastic free if society is to help prevent our oceans from becoming even more polluted by plastic waste.

The concept for the new video is the brainchild of The Riptide Movement’s frontman Malachy Tuohy. Featuring beautifully powerful choreography from London-based dance company Edifice Dance Theatre, and dancers Carmine De Amicis and Harriet Waghorn, the new video for ‘Plastic Oceans’ is a visually compelling expression of the need for change in the way we produce, consume, and dispose of the inexplicable amounts of plastic globally on a daily basis.

Speaking on the track, lead singer Mal Tuohy states: “We’re honoured that our music will help raise awareness of one of the greatest environmental challenges of our time. Our reliance on single use plastics is destroying our oceans, so well highlighted by David Attenborough in Blue Planet 2. As the saying goes, ‘there are plenty more fish in the sea’ but if we can’t stem the tide of plastic, by 2050 there’ll be more plastic than fish in our oceans. The future is in our hands.”
