1000 Beasts follows the success of 2017 electro-pop stomper Lord (It’s OK) with brand new alt-pop number Every Line & Curve.
Cork native and multi-instrumentalist Cian Sweeney is artist and producer 1000 Beasts, one of the most exciting emergences on the current Irish music scene: an ambitious collaborative effort that sees each unique track worked with a new vocalist; the ‘beasts’ behind the name. 1000 Beasts is a new Irish creative offering an innovative way to create music. 1000 Beasts’ early successes include tracks Wonderland and Lord (It’s OK) being featured on cult reality TV smash Made In Chelsea, with Lord (It’s OK) also making Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist.
Every Line & Curve is 1000 Beasts’ latest offering, a booming alt-pop groove reminiscent of the sonic pop sound that characterised the late nineties. The new track features vocals by Canadian Jacob Henley, who also co-wrote the song along with 1000 Beasts and Ireland’s 2018 Eurovision contender Ryan O’Shaughnessy. Henley’s vocals - reminiscent of Chet Faker, Rag'n'Bone Man and Dermot Kennedy - is uniquely suited to the narrative of the track, a dark and intimate portrait of the turmoil felt by its protagonist who is trapped in a pattern of returning to his previous lover in an attempt to escape the heartbreak of his latest failed romance.
Set for release on July 16th, Every Line & Curve proves the power of collaboration in hit-making and cements the rise of 1000 Beasts as an artist whose star is firmly on the ascendent.

The Last Mixed Tape
1000 Beasts current offering has wide-open electro sound that merges R&B with synth-pop to deliver a wholly satisfying listen from beginning to end.
A track that has all the weight to match the ambition, ‘Lord (It’s Ok)’ aims high with its production and ends up providing some truly beautiful sonic landscapes along the way.

With impressive releases so far we are certainly looking forward to what comes next.
1000 Beasts impresses with the booming electronic pop of ‘Lord (It’s OK)’
Lacing the single with electronic grooves and some smouldering soul and rn'b pop sounds, it's a highly addictive and laid-back affair.
This is great, some electronic R&B chillout vibe to the track, a bit like Bonobo’s softer side.
1000 Beasts is less a classical project and more of an intriguing electro-pop one with the idea being that each song in the series will feature a different vocalist.
One of the most inventive and exciting acts to come out of Cork recently, ambient electronic act 1000 Beasts released his single 'Got This Feeling' last week which featured on our last Irish playlist. The track features pop solo act Ryan O'Shaughnessy, and the two styles are blended together sublimely, on first listen you will enjoy the song, and with every listen after that you'll find yourself more and more reaching for it. The chorus is both musically and vocally invigorating, with everything in the lead up a proper tease toward heightened enjoyment.
A tasty track.
Unexpected collaborations are often the best kind
Sonically, it goes from a chill Chet Faker to more of a Bonobo inspired release.
