Indiependence 2013

Joining a host of great international and Irish artists such as Bastille, De La Soul and Kodaline, INDIEPENDENCE is delighted to announce a further bunch of top class acts for this year’s festival. US Indie rockers, We Are Scientists pave the way along with UK indie disco act, Cymbals.

The Irish contingent has also strengthened considerably with the addition of Ryan Sheridan, Foy Vance, New Sunset Hotel, Trucker Diablo and a welcome return to last year’s Red Bull Bedroom Jam winners, Walking on Cars. More acts are scheduled to be announced right into July, along with the full Bacardi Oakheart line-up and also several Breaking Tunes newcomers.

A first for Indie and a welcome addition to the apocalyptic Darkness arena, the Spoken Word Stage will feature the cream of the crop in spoken word and punk poetry. Headlined by Dundalk troubadour & quintessential Irish punk poet, Jinx Lennon, Indie 13 will also welcome Nagasaki Suntans and some of the leading players in cutting edge performance poetry including slam poet champions; Colm Keegan, Stephen James Smith, Fergus Costello and Abby Oliveira, as well as Cork’s very own punk poet & compere, Wasps vs Humans.

INDIEPENDENCE is also delighted to announce that this year’s associated charity will be the Cork Simon Community – Indie13 will make a donation to their very worthy cause. In 2012, one in every four people staying in Cork Simon’s Emergency Shelter was under 26 years of age.The number of young women using Cork Simon’s emergency support services has doubled over the last four years. More and more younger people are staying in Cork Simon’s high-support houses providing round-the-clock care for people with multiple health and related needs.

Blue Hawaii – Try To be

Lovely stufff


Blue Hawaii - Untogether

Try To Be is a single from Blue Hawaii‘s Untogether, their album released earlier this year. This song, much like the album, feels somewhat distant and delicate, as is was after all, recorded while the duo were on the opposite sides of the globe. Appart, or as they put it, Untogether. Enjoy.
