Written in a burst of a few weeks whilst living in northern Colombia, the songs dwell on questions about time, love and death in the modern age.Balanced with a diverse palette of sounds, Burnside deftly blends alt-folk and elements of the Irish folk song tradition with South American rhythms and Eastern European influences, whilst introducing synths loops and crunching beats to create a world that shifts and swirls perspective like a lingering lucid dream.Son Of The HoundMcCullagh, from the Gaelic 'Mac Cu Ulaidh' meaning Son of The Hound of Ulster. Son of The Hound sings songs and writes storiesLauren BirdWith her self-titled debut EP scoring the number one spot on the acoustic Bandcamp chart and winning Chordblossom's Kickstart 2015, Lauren Bird is just beginning to take her place on the music scene. The singer-songwriter from Tyrone brings a sweet, slightly awkward charm to the stage whilst singing songs about the trials and tribulations of being alive. Aaron Cunningham of Chordblossom writes, "one listen to Lauren Bird’s music, whether through her tracks or her live show, is enough to showcase her instant appeal. Her personal style of songwriting marries often sad and reflective subject matter with an upbeat and happy sound. Throughout each of her songs, Bird’s pop sensibilities and endearing charm shine through". Her recent Indiegogo campaign successfully raised 105% of the funds needed to record her debut album 'The Inbetween', which is out now!HungergrumpsA duo from Northern Ireland making cute punk sounds and Lo-Fi Sunshine Pop.www.shizzighpr.comwww.thebelfastempire.com
