Rumi - Moi Single Review

Rumi is the brand new musical outlet of Julianne Murray. After finishing studies at Limerick IT in music and tech, Julianne formed musical duo A Dream, The Night who received high praise from many in the music industry. As Rumi, she has now created an electro, pop, synth sound which Julianne says allows her to create beautiful pieces of music.

Rumi's debut single "Moi" is an incredibly chilled out dance track. From the very beginning, you're drawn in to the introspective nature of the lyrics and meditative beat. The song clocks in at 5:18 but to be honest, if "Moi" went on for 45 minutes nobody would mind. It's literally that good.  There's a pretty cool video for the single as well which was directed by Alan Flynn. "Moi" will be released on March 31st so not too long for you to wait.

Chicago Typewriter - A Warrior's Will Single Review

Chicago Typewriter are a hard rock duo hailing from Carrickfergus, Co. Antrim. The band consists of Matthew Davidson on bass and vocals and Ryan Luney on drums. Earlier this year they reached the final of The Goat's Toe Battle of The Bands in Bangor but were unable to play due to other commitments. Having released their single "Carry It On' in 2018, they now return with their latest single "A Warrior's Will".

"A Warrior's Will" is an absolutely top notch heavy rock track. It's got balls to the wall bass and savage drums a la Soundgarden, it's got quality vocals and it's just a fucking awesome tune. Very impressive sound coming from just two guys. The artwork is pretty sweet too.

Wild Wonder - New Energy Single Review

Wild Wonder are a brand new band hailing from Dublin and Meath. They describe their style as folk pop and have just put the finishing touches to their debut EP. The EP due for release later this year was recorded at Camden Studios, produced by Cian Boylan and Conor Brady and was mastered by Grammy award winner Ruadhri Cushnan who has previously worked with Ed Sheehan, Mumford & Sons and George Michael.

"New Energy" is the first single from that EP and is due out on April 4th. The track is a powerhouse of pop music. The vocals from Mags Fox really drive the song which wouldn't be at all out of place in a Disney movie music scene.
