Ireland’s Got Soul: Q&A with Shookrah


Shookrah is the kind of band loves-holiday.com was made for — they’re soulful, instrumental, collaborative and international. I can feel how much the Irish 8-member collective loves music; their favorite albums include Outkast’s “Spearkboxxx/The Love Below” and Janelle Monáe’s “The ArchAndroid.” The lead single, “W O M A N,” to the group’s new project features a funky guitar, unrelenting horns, three powerful voices singing the praises of womanhood and percussion that bring it all together.

Shookrah is reminiscent of Sharon Stone & the Dap Kings, Amy Winehouse and KING, but don’t let those references morph into comparisons. Their sound is all their own.

I could go on and on with adjectives, but I’d rather you draw your own conclusions. Shookrah’s debut EP “Implicit Content” is available to stream below and well be available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and Google Play soon.

After the break, press play and read on to learn more about the group.

This one’s not really new—it came out in July—but someone I follow on SoundCloud reposted it. The artist is a guy out of Dallas. According to his SoundCloud and Twitter profiles, he’s part of Erykah Badu’s Cannabinoids collective.
