Ones To Watch: North Side Drive

This lad. Have been meaning to write a piece on him for about a week. North Side Drive, an musician/producer from Cork. As a huge fan of anything subtle, his stuff is really out there. Very much in the James Blake piano/electronic vibe, I first found his cover of Bon Iver’s track ‘The Wolves.’ So beautiful and sparse. This is not the ordinary for me. I don’t normally write about music this classically influenced, but this is well worth a lesson. There’s gonna be more great music from this guy, I can already tell. Check out his social media stuff below, along with some tunes. Class act.

Video: Bon Iver-‘Towers’

Here’s a video for Bon Iver’s  new single ‘Towers’, which is as perfect as we are beginning to expect from J.Vernon and the gang. The video also features our album of 2011’s second last track Lisbon, OH‘ at the start. It is shot beautifully in a forest filled town, presumably in Canada or North America. In case you didn’t already know, they won two Grammy Awards recentlyThe video premiered on Vimeo today.
