Czech Republic's Yana has been making a name for herself on the Irish music scene after 2 brilliant 2019 singles "Distant Shore" and "Will You Be There?". Both songs featured Liam Ó Maonlaí from Hothouse Flowers.
Today Yana releases her third single from her upcoming "Distant Shore" EP. "Trapped In A Cage" features Elaine McCarthy from Cork band The Lost Gecko on cello.
"Trapped In A Cage" is yet again a very atmospheric song from Yana which is quickly becoming a signature trait of hers. Yana has a unique ability to bewitch her listeners with her vocals. The cello adds a whole new dimension of melancholic dread whilst again being somewhat playful.

Foot Squeaker are a three piece rock band from Gorey, Wexford. The band is made up of Diarmuid Comerford, Mick Byrne and Mike Lynch. They formed in 2018 when Diarmuid and Mike wanted to start a band with one rule: keep it hard and fast. In 2019, Mick joined the fold and the band rehearsed for the next several months. Their first gig was at The Gap Arts Festival where they received a great reception. In January 2020, the band recorded four track at Hellfire Studios in Dublin. The first to be released will be the band's debut single No Connection on May 29th. The song was tracked live during the recording session.

The band's sound is immense with the bass being particularly delicious. The chorus is catchy as fuck and will be stuck in your head for ages after listening. Foot Squeaker are a really exciting ba

Saturday night saw the return of Don't Flop Ireland after a lengthy hiatus. The excitement had been buzzing about this event online for weeks and the packed venue was an obvious sign of that. In the lead up to the event, there was abuse flying from all sides which helped to create even more hype but thats all part of the pageantry as they embrace each other and show love and respect towards each other immediately after the battle has ended. The battles on the night included Kid B vs The County Hunter, Sea High vs Intimidation, RapThor vs Lizzie C and an on beat battle between Scauldy and JMAC. All four battles were very impressive and calling a winner in each is extremely hard. If I was to pick winners though I would personally have chosen Kid B, Sea High, RapThor and then I honestly couldn't pick between Scauldy and JMAC. All the battlers brought their A game. This was my first time at a live battle rap event though I have been watching them online for almost a decade. As a
