In a world of shuttered music venues and snatched-away opportunities, Ireland’s music community continues to defy the odds – with young, emerging artists defiantly rising above seemingly insurmountable challenges, and flying the flag for their country. This bold energy, independent ethos and genre-defying talent is evident across our list of Hot For 2021 Irish Acts – which features artists from every corner of Ireland.
Cleverly combining pop and electronic elements, producer and performer Christian Cohle has earned comparisons to James Blake and Apparat. At Hot Press, we tipped him to be a megastar early on and we’re not backing down now! Cohle’s recent single, ‘Wallflower’, displays his more experimental side to thrilling effect. His album Holy Trouble is on the way – and could be huge.
Hear: ‘Drown Me Slow’.
