ROADTRIP TUNE OF THE WEEK #8 – This Summer By Keywest

Each week here at InstaIreland we fire out a couple of tunes to add to your road trip playlist to keep your ears happy as you travel!

Over the last four weeks or so we’ve featured road trip bangers from the likes of the Cranberries, Walking on Cars and Kodaline.

This week, it’s a tune from a band that you’ll recognise if you’ve passed through Dublin’s Grafton Street or Galway’s Shop Street over the past few years and stopped for a moment to listen to the bands busking away.

The band in question is Keywest and the song is called This Summer (hit play above).


A five piece Dublin based rock band, Keywest have used busking as a platform to catapult their music into the spotlight.

Their debut album hit Triple Platinum Status while their follow up album shot straight to number one in the charts.

In a nutshell – This Summer is a song about everything that makes those four days of sun we get during the leaving cert so damn great.

Kick back, hit play and try to ignore the sound of icy wind bashing against your window!
