Hozier recently released his unforgettable song ‘Too Sweet’, with its sensual beat and singing bass line that makes us question whether it's been in our heads forever.

This renewed success, a mere few months after his transcendental album Unreal Unearth, has allowed him to ride high on the charts both domestically and abroad. Despite this, he maintains his innate humility and discretion in the midst of internationally critically acclaimed success in the music industry. 

The Wicklow artist has another reason for rejoicing this month. Every year, Hotpress magazine readers are invited to cast their vote in a major poll, outlining what specific cultural moments, albums, artists, books etc. stood out to them over the past year. After a grudgingly competitive vote, Hozier swept the overall winner of the Hot Press Reader’s Poll. He emerged victorious in four categories : Irish Track of the Year for ‘Francesca’, Irish Album of the Year for the highly successful Unreal Unearth, Individual Artist of the Year and Best Songwriter.  

This revolving door of success is testimony to the indie singers’ evergreen success, and fans desire to see him continue to dominate tracks worldwide.
