We7, the online streaming service with over six-and-a-half-million tracks, launched in Ireland yesterday and having got to grips with the service I’m mightily impressed.
Straight away there was an option to listen to an extensive playlist of this years Choice Award nominees and if you’re content to put up with the odd short ad before a song then We7 is the perfect streaming tool.
Removing the ads will cost you €4.99 a month, while the mobile app versions for the iPhone and Android, which essentially means you can take the music with you everywhere, is available through a premium account at a cost of €9.99 a month
Featuring nice playlist creation options, an incredibly vast scope of artists and a radio function which automatically replenishes according to your individual preferences, We7 is a welcome addition which could dramatically alter the listening patter of many.
As part of the launch our very own Conor O’Brien of Villagers compiled a playlist of his 15 favourite songs.
A predominantly old-school set featuring artists such as Neil Young, The Kinks and Nina Simone, it’s none the less an interesting insight into the creator of last year’s finest Irish release.
