After celebrating its tenth anniversary of championing the best in both established and undiscovered Northern Irish music in 2010, this year the Live4ever Ezine was ecstatic to return to the Eagle’s Rock summit for the leading independent festival in the land, Glasgowbury.
It may not be anything to do with either Glasgow, Scotland or indeed the Pyramid Stage, but as far as having a real festival experience with an original ethos that’s entirely unique, the ‘small but MASSIVE’ bash is neck and neck with Glasto. Couple that with a simply unrivalled mountaintop setting that acts as a nativity scene for what is essentially Christmas for the country’s yearly music gathering, and you’re left with an atmosphere that can’t be described, it just has to be experienced.
Yes, there has been an entire month’s worth of material to update you all on – but first, and truly with some delirious sense of need, last weekend’s Pigstock Music Festival needs to be highlighted. A special case being only my second year in attendance, and having had the pleasure of witnessing Pigstock solidify not into the foundations of some weekend jaunt in a field but (pardon the food reference, we’ll get to that) a Christmas dinner with all of the (in this case, pork, and lots of it) trimmings.
Belfast has been brought to its knees by a community of acts steadily rising and roaring since And So I Watch You From Afar first alerted the country to a scene then largely unrealised with their mini-festival A Little Solidarity just over two years ago.
A Plastic Rose have unveiled the video for their new single “Oceans” ahead of the upcoming launch of the mini-album “The Promise Notes”.
The new seven track release will be available from March 31st when the Northern Irish four-piece, who Rocksound have named amongst this year’s “One’s To Watch”, play Belfast’s Limelight Complex with local support from Axis Of and Colenso Parade.
