Carlow Arts Festival this weekend celebrating 40 years!
There’s something punk rock about February. It’s short and to the point. In the spirit of the month, I’m gonna keep things brief. As per usual, I have used all my sources to find, collect and examine the new sounds collected here. Next step was to sift through all the noise and select only quality stuff.
A dance music sensation from Poland. Bass Astral x Igo is a result of collaboration between producer Kuba Tracz and vocalist Igor Walaszek. The duo took clubs in Poland by the storm this year, selling out their tour and rocking the dance floors all over the country. Their musical background derives from rock and more heavy styles, which they beautifully translated into dance music. Their gigs are not to be missed, an experience where your dancing shoes will be badly needed! Good Vibe guaranteed.
Female artists often speak out about objectification and sexism in the music industry. Making music independently not only means taking back their voice and control of their own image, but also discussing important issues such as women rights, pay and gender gap, sexual and domestic abuse, refugee crisis to name few. The recent scandals surrounding sexual misconduct in Hollywood and #metoo movement have put the spotlight on women but this time for rather important reasons.
