Track Of The Day: HOST – ‘Taste of Your Love’

An electro-pop gem that contemplates the short-comings of an unhealthy romance; Irish artist Host has shared her new single ‘Taste of Your Love’. Taken from her upcoming debut EP Adolescent Content (set for release later this year) the synth-pop star channels her love of bands like Diiv, Wolf Alice, The Japanese House, and The Cure on her new tune.

Speaking about her new track, Host explains: “Have you ever had someone you really care about do something so idiotic that it makes you look at them in a completely different light? ‘Taste of Your Love’ is that lingering bad impression that I just couldn’t shake, and everything built with this person, this solid foundation, just turned to quicksand. It’s sad really… this idiot, that you still adore nonetheless, has now forced you to cut them out and change your entire life.”

Despite its sad premise, we guarantee Host’s new single will have you up and dancing around your bedroom in no time. Listen to ‘Taste of Your Love’ below and follow Host on Facebook for more updates.

WATCH: Host – ‘b4me’

“Cut your hair but not your ties” advises Host as she faces down multiple camera lens’ in her new video for single ‘b4me’. It’s an infectious slice of electro-pop from the Irish newcomer, which navigates the tricky territory between being in love with the idea of being loved, and not being able to reciprocate that desire.

Following on from her debut single ‘Goodbye’, Host has spent most of her year writing, recording and producing music alone. ‘b4me’ is another sharply produced offering from the newcomer, who had this to say about her new track: “Usually, like many other artists, I write my songs based off an exaggerated version of the truth; but ‘b4me’ is far from fiction. I produced the song fully before adding a lyrical element to the music and for me, that alone spoke volumes, but sometimes you just have to speak your thoughts aloud to make them fully register”.

Fact or Fiction: we’re happy to dance along to Host’s upbeat tunes. Watch the video for ‘b4me’ below, and follow her on Facebook for more updates.

Track Of The Day: LIERS – ‘Host’

A shimmering slice of garage rock glory: North Dublin’s LIERS have shared their latest single ‘Host’. The release coincides with the news that the band have been announced as one of the winners of Ireland’s RTE 2FM’s ‘Play The Picnic’ Competition, which will seem them take to the stage at Electric Picnic on the weekend of August 31st.

LIERS released their debut single ‘Universal Feamle’ just a few months ago, and with now with second track ‘Host’ under their belts; summer 2018 looks promising for the band. Vocalist and guitarist Liz explains further:

“We were delighted with the response and reaction to our first single ‘Universal Female’. It gave us a great chance to get out and chase the gigs and play to buzzed-up crowds. It’s an exciting time to be on the Irish scene with our sound, and we’re very grateful to the DJs who gave us the spins needed so far and of course to our growing base of fans, many of who voted for us to get to play the Picnic and we really want to thank everyone for their support.

We are very grateful to 2FM for the opportunity to play the Picnic as it’s been one of our biggest goals so far. The proceeds of the voting went to the Jack and Jill Foundation so it’s a very worthy cause to support also. We can’t wait to land in Stradbally. We just want to keep being loud, have fun and show people what we’re here to do”

Sounds good to us! Listen to ‘Host’ below and follow LIERS on Facebook for more updates.

‘Host’ is available to stream on Spotify & download from Bandcamp now.

WATCH: HOST – ‘Goodbye’

After spending the past year writing, recording and producing music alone, Irish artist HOST has shared her debut single ‘Goodbye’ with the world. It’s a song about “putting your heart and soul into a shit relationship that inevitably falls apart” – which is something most of us unfortunate souls have probably endured.

It’s not all doom and gloom though: HOST’s electronic pop hooks make ‘Goodbye’ a charming, up-tempo listen. The accompanying video is a mash of glitter, wine and raw emotion which you can re-enact in your bedroom any time you need to shrug off the feelings of inadequacy left by a lover who didn’t deserve you. Check it out below…
