Interview with Dubliner Frontman Paddy Hanna: “I ignore the zeitgeist”

The Dubliner, known for fronting the Grand Pocket Orchestra, has recently set out on a solo career. His debut record “Leafy Stiletto” was released to critical acclaim back in 2014.

In this interview, Hanna discusses his opera singing father, the personal physical work he put into "Underprotected", and some of his favourite contemporaries on the Dublin scene.

Interview with Singer Danielle Sullivan of Wild Ones: “Being in a band is amazing and fun”

Wild Ones extend the summer with their recently released EP Heatwave as they continue to define and refine their particular blend of self-proclaimed ‘dream pop’. The quintet’s latest release includes five very ‘groovable’ tunes built around funky and gritty guitar lines, precisely driven drums, smooth and full vocals and moody synthesizers.  Finishing up another year of substantial touring, Wild Ones’ Danielle Sullivan was kind enough to answer a few questions about the evolution of their sound band, and some of their strangest stage moments.

Interview with Son of Fogman from USA Out Of Vietnam: “Without light there is no darkness”

Punishing sludge rock morphs into joyous, sky-reaching orchestrations. Frustration becomes adulation. It’s the sound of survival and hope in a world where planes crash and diseases go uncured. Lola Who took these conundrums to singer/guitarist Son of Fogman who revealed some of the methods behind the madness.
