Pure M Picks – July 26th

Bless my cotton socks, we’re in the news ladies and gentlemen. Unlucky for some, it’s our thirteenth Pure M Picks and by jove I think we’ve finally cracked it.

Track of the week is “Forget About the World” from Cut Once.

Cut Once – Forget About the World

“Forget About the World” is a dramatic, electro track that will haunt your sleep for days after listening. In other words, it’s beautiful and you really need to hear it as soon as possible.

A tremendous slice of indie-rock from the Cork band. It’s infectious, highly polished, and has a massive chorus that gets your fists in the air without even trying.

 

Simon Murphy – Lone Star Heart

The highlight of the Antrim man’s new album Let it Be is an enjoyable pop-rock number with some top vocals.

David Long – London

The Kerryman has produced an album full of low-key, sophisticated pieces just like this. London is a short and sweet highlight.

The Deans – Take it Easy

A stark, keyboard-led track from the Galway band. It’s surprisingly catchy, even after a heavy final third. Good stuff.
