  • Watch: R.S.A.G. – Meet You There

    Kilkenny’s Jeremy Hickey AKA R.S.A.G is an artist that has always kept us second-guessing. From the likes of his debut Organic Sampler to 2010’s Be It Right of Wrong, the multi-instrumentalist has always struck a strong balance between familiar and forward-thinking, which is something he has yet again achieved with his new single ‘Meet You There’. Featuring visuals by partner in AV crime Paul Mahon AKA Geppetto, it’s a masterfully propulsive, perfectly danceable slice of electro-pop by the virtuoso drummer. We have this one on repeat.

  • Stream: R.S.A.G. – Leave A Light On

    Jeremy Hickey aka Rarely Seen Above Ground aka R.S.A.G. is a musician native to Kilkenny whose music and live performances have for the past number of years, funnily enough, been mythologised as legendary in a very “underground” way. Since beginning to operate under the R.S.A.G. banner in 2008, Hickey has been nothing if not a elusive, from quietly releasing albums like his debut Organic Sampler and 2010’s Be it Right or Wrong to randomly unleashing tracks such as 2014’s infectiously driving ‘I’ll Be There‘. To catch him playing live is a spectacle to behold, watching him relentlessly attack his drum kit, never for a second…

  • Watch: R.S.A.G. – ‘I’ll Be There’

    Six years on from the release of his breakthrough debut album, Organic Sampler, Kilkenny multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Hickey AKA R.S.A.G has unveiled the video to his new single, ‘I’ll Be There’. Created by Paul Mahon AKA Geppetto, the visual accompaniment is a brilliantly edited melange of brief hypnagogic visions and black-and-white footage of Hickey on drums, bass and guitar. The track will featured on the next R.S.A.G album, set for release in Autumn. Watch the video below.
