Spiky guitars, hook heavy and an anthemic chorus, Sorcha Richardson returns with her long-awaited new single Don’t Talk About It, the first track to come from her debut LP, First Prize Bravery. The Irish artist writes catchy and relatable tunes that bristle with gritty realism.
Of the track, Sorcha says: It’s a song about avoiding conflict and trying to keep the peace, no matter how much you end up sacrificing in order to do so. Sometimes it feels much easier to convince yourself that you’re happy in a relationship, or in a city, or in a job, than to admit to yourself that you’re not, and to have to drag that problem out the light and deal with it. But that never works, and when you leave a problem alone, 99% of the time it just grows and grows until you can’t ignore it. I’ve learned that lesson the hard way, more than once. This is a song about what you end up losing when you smile and hold your tongue, but also what an achievement it is when you do learn to confront a situation that scares you.’
