It's great to see Irish artists tackling major social issues such as this. And as the artist himself has proven in his own life, it's never too late to change your direction for the better.

Former Humanzi/The Mighty Stef alumni Brian Gallagher has returned with his latest single Sub-Dude under the moniker of SOnance HOtel. The track has a current of morose sunshine running through it similar to early Doves material. It's bleak and claustrophobic yet somehow spacious and uplifting at the same time. Gallagher's voice has a gritty, knowing, ethereal quality to it which blends wonderfully with the sonic architecture beneath it.
