Since I’m in Ireland for a spell I thought I’d post some of our favorite new Irish music of the past year—some of which may not have permeated Stateside music minds.
Irish singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow is well-known in the U.S.; his albums Early in the Morning and Post Tropical did well abroad and were soundly in a familiar indie-folk vein. He achieved more prominence for his cover earlier this year of Chris Isaak’s classic, sultry track “Wicked Game,” which was used in a trailer for the sixth season of HBO’s wildly-popular Game of Thrones.
In September of this year, McMorrow dropped his third studio album, We Move, which was acclaimed for its aesthetic departure into a more soulful, electronic, R&B realm.
Here’s a standout track from that record, “Get Low.” Enjoy.
