Sorcha Richardson – Lost

Dublin born and based in New York, Sorcha Richardson sings songs of life, love and loss. So does everyone else you may well say. But in her simple lyrics of stealing your favourite tipple, summers spent in a cider haze, dancing off heartbreak and more, she stands out with the kind of clear storytelling usually only seen in the best novels, with alarmingly arresting pop music, eminently danceable on the same time as being imbued with a flicker of world weary knowingness. Ruin Your Night starts stripped back and melancholy, but then starts looping in a frenzy of chanting hooks and swooping melodies, and the barrage of brilliance lures you into a sweet excitement and before you know it you’re obsessed with Sorcha Richardson. Or at least that’s my experience. Brilliant.
