Am I the only one disappointed by the quality of the new section? According to the Style cover, Antonia Campbell-Hughes is ‘Ireland’s Indie Queen’. Em, why? She seems like a very nice girl ‘n’ all, but not exactly an ‘Indie Queen’ (whatever that is). Overall both of the Irish sections so far have come across as under-researched and fairly hastily cobbled together. A shame, really, and a bit of a missed opportunity given how many interesting artists are coming out of the Irish — and particularly Dublin — scene at the moment…*
* In the interests of fairness, I suppose I should say that I do work in this area myself: see here.
