In A Week: March 27 to April 2, 2016

In A Week is our look back at Hozier highlights and happenings from the previous week.


This week Instagram brought in changes to how people will be able to view posts, so we thought the time was finally right to unveil our newest page. Now you can see the last 3 Instagram posts from Hozier, each of the band members and ourselves in one handy spot. Bookmark this page and never miss another Instagram post.


Also, we’ve updated our post on Raven, Hozier’s new Danelectro Guitar to include some specs and a few good photos.

More on Hozier’s Gold Medal of Honorary Patronage Award from Trinity College Dublin.

The Guardian analysed the list of all-time best selling singles and re-ranked them by streaming stats. Hozier’s Take Me To Chuch is #7 on the list of Spotify’s Top 20 Most-Streamed songs.

The Cherry Wine video for Hozier’s #FaceUpToDomesticViolence campaign passed 4 million views on YouTube this week.

Band Projects

Alex Ryan was back in studio with Saint Sister.


We started the week with a chuckle when Anúna posted a blooper reel to YouTube.

We couldn’t help ourselves.

Speaking of senses of humour, April Fools’ Day brought this hilarious parody article on Hozier from the University of Wisconsin.

The Late, Late Show with James Corden

Hozier will be on The Late, Late Show with James Corden airing Monday night, April 4th (technically, very, very early Tuesday, April 5th.)

Live From The Artist’s Den

Live From The Artist’s Den episode with Hozier will air this week, but it will not air on the same date in all regions. Although, the show’s website says “Starting April 8th” we have seen some mentions of people seeing it in their television listings on April 7th.

In the USA the show airs on PBS. You can check your local public television listings here.

Wyvern Lingo

Wyvern Lingo had a busy week. They performed a secret show in the hills above Dublin, that was recorded for Sofar Sounds, in advance of their sold out EP launch at The Button Factory. Check out photos from the night and post-gig antics from the band.

Wyvern Lingo also released an interview offering in-depth insight into their song Subside and a fabulous behind-the-scenes style video for their song Running featuring footage from their three nights supporting Hozier in Brixton in January.

Saint Sister

Saint Sister are back in Kerry with Alex Ryan to record their second EP.  They also released a stunning new video for their song, Blood Moon.

Jarlath Henderson

Jarlath launched his album, Hearts Broken, Heads Turned this week.  You can listen to and purchase the album on bandcamp.  Alana Henderson provided vocals for tracks 7 and 8.


Jess Kav’s band BARQ released their first video this week, also landing them on Spotify Ireland’s Viral 50 playlist.
