A Galway-based songwriter and artist has just released this beautiful music video which captures some of the city's most loved spots in colourful animation. Watch it here...
A love note to Galway, 'Don't Shoot Me Those Baby Blues' and its music video tells the tale of bumping into an ex-girlfriend randomly and proceeding to have a catch up conversation, reminiscing on the good times. But before you can muster up the courage to ask to go for a coffee and catch up properly, you realise you've walked her to her new boyfriend's house. The baby blues in question refers to the girl's eyes. The male character concedes she has moved on and is ready to accept that, just as long as she doesn't shoot him the look that he fell in love with in the first place. The song and video in Galway city and feature many of the city's landmarks and trademarks.

Partland is the stage name of Galway based singer-songwriter and artist Thomas McPartland. Partland has gigged in various countries such as Canada, Germany, France, Scotland and England over the years, including support slots with the likes of Damien Dempsey, HamSandwich, Picturehouse and Heathers. His first album, 'Sing Me to Shore' was released in the Summer of 2016, and was featured as Charlie McGettigan's Album of the Month on his internationally-renowned radio show. Partland's forthcoming album 'The Empty Atlantic' will feature a unique facet, in that the songwriter has also created a music video for each song. This gives an extra dimension in creating a visual world in addition to the listening experience, to give a full cinematic telling of the stories of the songs on the record.
Partland unleashed his soothing, infectious and heart-wrenching new single ‘Don’t Shoot Me Those Baby Blues’ on August 26th 2022 ahead of the release of his upcoming album 'The Empty Atlantic' later this year. Listen on Spotify and follow Partland on Facebook & Instagram.
