Sallay Matu Garnett, better known as Loah, is a spellbinding singer who grew up between Maynooth and Sierra Leone. She made her recorded debut with last years ‘This Heart’ EP and this year she is releasing new remixes for each song on the record, working with a variety of different producers and artists.
For ‘Keep Your Heart’, Limerick MC God Knows (of Choice Music Prize winners Rusangano Family) pens his most personal song to date over a loop of the Bantum produced instrumental ‘This Heart Interlude’. The lyrics tell of an emotional reunion with an old friend who’s fallen on hard times, a theme that’s sadly quite relatable to many young adults in Ireland.
God Knows threads the story through nostalgic childhood memories and the track is paired perfectly with a video filmed in Maynooth and Shannon (where Loah and God Knows grew up), produced by Irish studio Geppetto. Additional production on the track comes from Ben Bix & Dunny (Meltybrains?)
It’s fantastic to see so many brilliant artists collaborating regularly and strengthening the Irish music community.

Dublin masked melody makers Meltybrains? have been busy bees lately. They’ve released 3 new singles in as many months and are about to embark on an Irish/UK tour starting this Friday.
Never a band to bow to convention, they released the first song ‘New Don’ on a limited edition run of 100 signature red masks. The song starts with an inviting yet slightly unnerving melody before developing into a haunting soundtrack you can imagine being chased through the woods to.
‘Wiggly Worms’ tells the age old tale of meeting your partner’s parents for the first time from the perspective of both parties. It features uplifting choruses and is delivered in their unmistakable style.
‘Heartfelt Hummer’ is a laid back song with groove to burn. Check the video’s description for the hilarious stories behind the lyrics.
Meltybrains? are a sight to behold live and the stage is where they are truly in their element. `Their energy is infectious and their tight displays of musical prowess are well worth a watch. Get yourself down to one of these shows and see for yourself!
