It’s rare that you find a song that instills a giddy sense of adventure in you.
I’m constantly on the lookout for music that makes me want to dive into Google, book a hotel in some random corner of Ireland, and just set off and explore, with nothing but the open road ahead and a fresh mug of coffee by my side.

Over the past few days, I’ve been belting two songs around my head over and over again.
Here they are, in all their glory!! ??
Cry Monster Cry – Homebird
I came across this song when I heard it banging away on an incredible video of a couple’s honeymoon along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way (check it out if you haven’t seen it).
The song, which was created by brothers Richie and Jamie Martin from Dublin, is one of those tracks you listen to all the way through, before jabbing repeat and listening to it all over again.
Hermitage Green – Cloud 9
I’ve had a soft spot for Hermitage Green for the last year or so, after hearing ‘Quicksand’ while queuing for a coffee – thank you Shazam!
Cloud 9 starts off as a pretty chilled tune for the first minute or so before a lovely dollop of rowdiness takes hold during the chorus.
Hit play and let this one intoxicate your soul!
