Neil Moylan’s Wonderfully Creative Music Project

Musician supreme, Neil Moylan, has shared the following very interesting message with us.    I’ve listened to Neil’s magnificent recording and it’s truly awe-inspiring.    Wishing Neil every success in this wonderfully creative Music Project.  (S.R.)

“I’m just sending out this generic message to try to get some music out there. If you use Spotify I would be deeply grateful if you could follow me at this link I’ve released a single at the cost of €4.00 which is more indicative of the style of music I intend making going forward. It’s a piano, choir and orchestral instrumental arrangement of Radiohead’s song “Karma Police.” Absolutely no obligation whatsoever but it can be found here. I would encourage you to listen to not just mine, but ANY music using decent speakers or headphones. Any music sounds pretty tinny on a mobile handset speaker.”

Four Nights debut EP ‘Bed’

Congrats to Tommy Buckley going by name ‘Four Nights‘ who last week release his debut EP ‘Bed’. BreakingTunes says: “It  has all of the hallmarks of 80’s pop, and takes influence from the likes of The 1975, LANY, and Nightly. Big soundscapes, splashy snares and clean vocals are masterfully produced by Diffusion Lab’s Marcin Ciszczon, AKA Emiji.
In February 2020 Tommy set off to travel South East Asia for a year, but was forced to come home only after a month due to the pandemic. Suddenly with a lot of spare time in lockdown, he threw himself completely into music, writing more than 30 songs in a focused two month period.
He released his debut singles (‘Want You Always / Nothing to Say’) in November and quickly gained 100k+ Spotify streams and heavy rotation on national radio. He followed this up with ‘Grow So Cold’ and ‘Not This Time’ which gained placements on the ‘New Pop UK’ and ‘Chilled Pop Hits’ editorial playlists on Spotify. His debut EP ‘Bed’ followed in July.”

Give a listen to the five tracks on the EP at the bottom of this post:

Tommy was also interviewed for the Bellissimo Files on Spin 103. Listen here:
