June Hope EP review – “balmy, introspective dreamscapes”

In the ongoing, surreal unfurling of 2020, some of us may lose faith in the notion of “progress”. We may find it ever harder to believe in the unbounded optimism displayed in technicolour videos of the ‘60s. Locked into our homes for months on end, the idea of society in all its messy glory has taken on an impossible shimmer, the former buoyancy and sense of unbridled opportunity for our generation shrouded in uncertainty. And nothing symbolises the interruption to normality more than the cancellation of live music shows, with festival-goers having to instead content themselves with livestreamed kitchen concerts and classic gigs on YouTube.

Eoin Dolan – “Recording puts a microscope on your art, and it’s very unforgiving”

2020 had started well for Eoin Dolan. His single, Superior Fiction, was gathering great reviews and airplay and he was ready to embark on a tour, with a stop in Berlin along the way, before everything came to a halt. Dolan chatted with us a couple of months back in jovial form just as COVID-19 had forced everyone inside and gave the Galway man great time to focus on his gardening, reading and, luckily for all of us, a new EP – June Hope, released this weekend.
