Gough is one of the many Irish artists who had his music featured on Normal People
Drummer, producer and rapper Alex Gough is heading up New Music Friday with a two-track release.
'HEART ATTACK' is a brisk, rapidfire verse that "started out as a rant aimed at various authoritative figures who would sometimes abuse their power and make certain assumptions with no backstory.
"The song was initially a couple of scribbled sentences which then stretched around a half real, half fake narrative of a night out that I had," explains Gough. "I see it as kinda like a sitcom moment, where someone gets so worked up, veins popping out etc, that they just keel over".
'Be Kind', on the other hand, sees Gough flexing his production muscles. "It’s a huge part of who I am as an artist and I’ve always been keen to make sure that side of me is heard," says Gough. "Writing it came at a time of high stress for me so you could say it’s a bit of a letter to myself".
