Stream: Comrade Hat – Go To Waste


Having premiered its title track and lead single via The Thin Air in May last year, Old Amsterdam is a forthcoming EP from Derry’s Neil Burns AKA Comrade Hat set for release on January 17. Previously a member of arguably the city’s finest offbeat pop-makers Strength, Burns has released the EP’s second single, ‘Go To Waste’.
