“Concréit Fhuar” (cold concrete) is an Irish-language electro-pop song bound to get you moving. 

“The song deals with the mind of a man who has recently found himself homeless and gives the listener an insight into the myriad of thoughts that he has about himself, life and the world he has suddenly found himself in,” Deoraí state. 

“While the topic is serious, the music has a twist of electro-funk and behind every struggle, there is a glimmer of light.”
