Tá ceol nua-aimseartha trí Ghaeilge ag éirí i bhfad níos faiseanta anois leis an mbanna óir Kneecap.

 

Cé hiad Kneecap a deir tú? Bhuel, mura raibh tú in ann freastal ar Longitude nó Body & Soul, téigh agus éist leo anois mar tá liosta mór gigeanna acu don chuid eile den bhliain.

 

Agus cinnte is féidir a rá go bhfuil siad ag dul ó neart go neart ónar tháinig an triúir le chéile in 2017.

 

Is banna hip-hop iad Kneecap a bhíonn ag canadh faoi cúrsaí conspóideacha ach, ar bharr sin, bíonn siad ag canadh trí Ghaeilge.

 

Chonaic Emily Doyle (24) iad ar an stáitse thart ar an deireadh seachtaine agus dúirt sí: “Bhí an t-atmaisféar ar fheabhas. Níor cheap mé go mbeadh an slua chomh mór sin dóibh ach tá an-suim ar fad ag daoine iontu.”

 

Dúirt Emily go raibh fíor-tallainn ag na ceoltóirí agus gur léir nár chuma leo faoi mhasla a thabhairt, seasann siad a fód agus tá siad macánta amach is amach.

 

Is léir go bhfuil na fir óg ag déanamh an-dul chun cinn agus ag éirí leo níos mó gigeanna a bheith curtha in áireamh acu.

 

Is mór an trua go bhfuil an ceol cosctha ó na stáisiúin raidio — ach is maith an rud é go bhfuil an t-idirlíon againn?

 

New music in Irish is certainly becoming the fashion as the new kids on the block, Kneecap, are making a breakthrough.

 

Who are Kneecap, you ask? Well, if you haven’t been able to attend Longitude or Body & Soul this year, go online now and listen to them because there’s a list of gigs that just keeps getting added to as the year goes on.

 

And as those crowds and gigs are gradually getting bigger and better, it’s safe to say that Kneecap have definitely hit the ground running since the three young men came together in 2017.

 

Kneecap are a hip-hop trio known for their controversial lyrics, but they’ve also made a name for themselves as one of the very few acts who have brought this controversy to our ears through the medium of the Irish language.

 

Emily Doyle (24) saw them on stage for the first time at Longitude and said: “The atmosphere was brilliant. I honestly didn’t expect a huge crowd but I was gobsmacked when I saw how many people turned up. It’s great to see so many people showing an interest in them.”

 

Emily also said that the musicians have tremendous talent and it’s obvious that they stand their ground on their opinions, which relays in them being very honest about their music.

 

It’s clear to see the young trio are making a name for themselves when the list of gigs is getting longer and the size of the gigs are getting remarkably larger as they go.

 

It’s a shame their modern music and great vibe has been banned from the airwaves — isn’t the internet a great thing altogether?
