Popular Rocker Christopher Taylor Knows What It's Like When You Trust A Person With Your Inner Thoughts
No One Knows
Multiple award-winning pop rocker Christopher Taylor has wooed us all with his poignant and intuitive songwriting over the years. The previous Chasing Rainbows, best EP according to Akademia, is only the start. Yorkshireman Christopher Taylor has enjoyed a succession of radio exposure with his many singles, enjoying airtime on the BBC and plenty of local stations as well.
An uplifting guitar lick brings out a groovy drum-score as chords and bass bash the funk-laden rhythm. Snappy snare lifts the melodic progression as Christopher Taylor begins to sing. It's a love song, touching on that sense of knowing a person more than anyone else when we open up and let them in. A song about trust and care, filled with jazzy influences and trumpets, the disco rock sensibility is a cracker for easy going driving or dancing around the table. It's one for the ladies, if you ask me. Having said that, I'm still singing the chorus.

Heartbreakingly attractive and with a super-star talent, Nashville's high-flying Chloe Collins is back with another cracking tune. Not your everyday song-writer, with music already featured on American TV more than once and a life-long passion for performance, it's always exciting when she releases something new. Her influences range from Katy Perry to Taylor Swift with everything country in between, which lends a cool and sophisticated edge to a soul of hay and horses.
With a tingle of cymbal and a wavery sunny guitar the music begins. A bass kicks in and Chloe starts to sing. Her familiar and cosy voice rides the smooth progression as the verse changes to chorus. A fantastic melodic shift in pattern brings a gut-wrenching chorus line to the front as the music ripples like muscles holding a heavy heart. Harmonious undercurrents of wailing guitar carry the sound through a thick and syrupy composition as glacial emotions crumble into our glass of whiskey.

Featuring Donna Bisset
Mixing Irish heritage with an Americana sound gives a distinctive transatlantic atmosphere to the solo career of Padjo Dolan. He's been an integral part of a popular band for a while and now is further lifting the scene with his second eponymous song. Forming a group of fantastic musicians to bring this track to life, Padjo (Patrick) Dolan on vocal and guitar is joined by Cian Boylan, Conor Brady, Dave Hingerty, and Robbie Malone. Female backing vocals are provided by the fabulous Donna Bisset. Having found his fighting spirit as a musician during the lockdown, a new wave of energy is manifesting through Dolan's handiwork.
Acoustic guitar and electric guitar join forces as a bashing drumbeat kicks off the show. Quick lyrics with a memorable and crystal-clear voice rise with a folky melody. Powerful chords bosh the tempo down with the help of steady and energetic drums. Strumming patterns describe a riff that hides within the mix as a secondary avenue of composition as forward facing vocals keep our attention. Musical interludes of piano and blues fill the spaces as a fantastic rock energy keeps the fire burning.

Namely Fintan Tynan on vocals, Collum Kelly on the guitar, Damien Ruddy on the bass, and Adam Reeves behind the drum-kit, Raging Sons take the lead with Square One. When taking the front of the pack into the unknown, its always square one. Similar to U2 and The Killers, this loud and skilful group of guys have already enjoyed Track Of The Week on RTÉ 2FM which goes out over all Ireland. A much anticipated album is on the wing and due to land sometime at the end of October, so while we wait we can enjoy this cracking new track and video.
It starts with vocal that soon meets a rhythmic mix of drum and guitar. It sounds like bass harmonics forming a repeating melody of toneful kinesis. The guitars rise in the mix and chords bash out epic scenes of soundscape as the vocal evolves into melodious and avant-garde displays of passion. The progressive force behind the composition maintains a keen tempo based on the repeating riff from the beginning yet allows plenty of room for exploration and shifts in power. Excellent lyrics keep it all fresh as repeating sections never quite sound the same and a clever middle-eight turns over to show even more aspect to this craft.

Since pre-pandemic days, Urania have been enjoying illegal raves and have proven themselves to be a musical force of nature. Now heading out into the bigger spotlight, and with a brand new radio single, Leicester's electro rock outfit are setting sail for the wide ocean. Simulation Hypothesis opens the gates to a realm of thought and sound that we all want to explore. Are we living in a simulation? And if so, are we also a simulation? Then, if we live in a universe that's purely scientific principles playing out their functions, is there any difference? Maybe the fact that we find the question so interesting points to an open intuition that we are not simulated at all, even when everything around us is obeying seemingly pre-programmed instructions that are independent.
Vibrant synthesiser and rock drums break the song open like a cracker. Siren tones and huge bass spill out over the table, vocals begin and raise the energy to a point higher than we expected. Reverb wobbles the tone into a pinnacle of uplifting harmony as the music changes, bringing out new edges to the shape. A constant synthesiser presence hones the dynamics of the composition as various parts launch the song into progressive orbits. It's great uplifting dance track that punches you like heavy metal.

Tanoki Featuring Tay Edwards
It Has Begun
Tanoki's new album is shaping up to be a phenomenon as he releases another single from the record. Track number three shows us that this music producer has a serious range and a developed focus. Taking the vocal position is Tay Edwards, fresh from the North Carolina rap scene. Created in Kilkenny, Ireland's Tanoki has built the music and produced a great video from his own professional studio. Having collaborated with Linkin Park, Lisa Hannigan, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and lots more, this multi-talented artist is not letting his guard down.
Guitar begins with a fizzy distortion. A synthesiser joins Tay Edwards as a fantastic pace is assigned through verb. The words roll around in snappy lines that rhyme with adaptive rhythms. A bass pumps a large section through the mix, it throbs and sustains in deep and soft pushes of sound. A break brings back another verse where guitar works with the vocalist to provide a smooth and introspective section. As the pressure rises, another chorus brings on the progression to a climax as the mix of instruments thickens out and carries us to the shore.
