4. Raglans

Raglans have been killing it on the festival scene and are known for their alternative rock sound. The lads are currently touring around Europe including gigs in Russia and The Netherlands, and have already supported artists like The Strypes, The Libertines and Haim. Listen to 'Digging Holes' for some headbanging guitar and powerful vocals.


This female duo fronted by Deborah Byrne and Suzette Das, fuse their honey-like vocals with an electronic-pop feel. Their music seriously packs a punch and are an example for strong Irish female musicians. Their fantastic single 'If Love Was Enough' is littered with shimmering pop sounds and should be added to your new music playlist.
