Each one features a different vocalist, creating a unique and original sound.  

Featured on the new EP is FIGR’s previous hit single ‘Long Gone’, which features Niamh Clancy. Niamh is a well-known Limerick backing vocalist. FIGR chose Niamh because her versatility, harmonizing ability and vocal talent was a perfect match for the indie-electronic vibe of Long Gone.    

‘Long Gone’ was written by FIGR after his initial debut single ‘Fear’ which featured Conor Clancy. ‘Fear’ was showcased on RTE and was even featured on the Signal Flow Spotify playlist which was created by Philip Magee.  

‘Fear’ featuring Limerick-based singer Conor Clancy who is from Waterford is also the lead vocalist of the band ‘Toucan’, one of Ireland’s most popular bands at the moment is the second track featured on the EP.  

‘Hey Hey’ featuring Ronan Mitchell is the third single featured on the EP.

They have released multiple successful albums over the past 8 years.  

The final single which is featured on the new EP is ‘Life’ with Life ft. Alan Watts and Fiadh Griffin.
