In The Spotlight

Shookrah – “Notions”

The five members of this Irish synth-soul outfit created an unique sound that is nestled between R&B, Neo-Soul and Future-Soul. Influenced by the sounds of Thundercat, Solange and Anderson .Paak, they debuted with their EP “Implicit Content” back in 2014. They’ve shared a stage with Billy Ocean, headlined at Cork’s Quarter Block Party and are gearing up to go on a national and European tour.

Adding a sleek, funky vibe to their musical cornucopia of genre-spanning sounds, their new single is overflowing with vibrant luminosity. Taken from their long-awaited, self-titled debut album, to be released on October 25, it’s the aural blend of catchy beats, sweltering synths and the plethora of jazzy guitar strums, matched with sumptuous, soulful vocals, that makes this a lavish, ear-tingling tune.

In The Spotlight

William Bolton – “Teasin'”

Hailing from Detroit, this singer, songwriter and producer was born with soul music in his veins. Growing up without a TV, he found his inspiration in the Motown soul of Marvin Gaye, The Supremes and Stevie Wonder. With his own musical blend, known as Electric Soul, he’s toured around Europe, got over 40 million streams and became a festival favorite. He debuted with “Let’s Stay Together” in 2013.

With a reverberating, electronic rhythm bouncing throughout the melody and scintillating synths adding a crisp freshness, his new single is a contemporary fusion of vitalizing pop, funk and soul. Multi-layered with genre-spanning melodious influences, it’s the addition of some disco violins and his smooth and energetic falsetto vocals that make this tantalizing tune tease all of your senses.
