NEOMADiC Drop Brand New Single Featuring shiv

April 16, 2021

NEOMADiC have just released their brand new single ‘WAVES’ featuring shiv today, alongside announcing the release of their EP ‘AFTER DARK’ due to be released this summer.

The single ‘WAVES’ sees two of Ireland’s most up and coming acts join forces – with NEOMADiC having been championed by Highsnobiety, The Irish Times and Red Bull as well as making their TV debut on RTE’s Other Voices, while shiv was named by RTE 2FM as one of their Rising Artists for 2021 as well as being selected as Hot for 2021 by Hot Press and capturing the attention of the BBC.

‘WAVES’ is a soulful intro into ‘AFTER DARK’ and sets the tone for an EP packed with personality and originality, setting the mood for late night listening. NEOMADiC trade verses over lush mellow productions, pulling you into a world of introspective lyrics that detail personal issues along with subtle spiritual and pop culture references. The EP was recorded in Vancouver Canada, summer 2020.

I’ve been working for tips, with lyrics on the tip of my tongue, I’m at the tip of my cliff, I got a tip I should jump

‘WAVES’ is the first release since NEOMADiC’s 2017 debut tape ‘The NEOMADiC Tape’ which caught the attention of the Irish Hip hop scene, resulting in headline slots at festivals such as Electric Picnic and KnockanStockan, as well as support slots with hip/hop legends Souls of Mischief and Pharoah Monch.

NEOMADiC are representative of a new Irish generation, kids of multicultural heritage drawing inspiration from their experiences and beyond. Dyramid is Irish and South Sudanese, and Yake Loga is Irish and Zimbabwean. Yake Loga, having moved to Ireland from South Africa around the age of 17, had been making music as a hobby. After meeting Dyramid in school the pair began collaborating and formed NEOMADiC. This 7 track EP comes after the pair spent a couple of years living in Canada, it is a culmination of their experiences over the past couple of years and an expression of what they have to offer.

‘WAVES’ the brand new single from NEOMADiC featuring shiv is out now across all digital platforms, with the EP ‘AFTER DARK’ due to be released this summer.
