“A vivid portrait of teenage deep-thinking: intricate, ambiguous psychodramas” Guardian
“Soak’s sound has snippets of Cat Power and the delicacy of Lykke Li…well-crafted and uplifting psalms” Noisey
17-year-old Derry songwriter SOAK has announced plans for a new EP, ‘Blud’ (out March 17). This will form the first release on CHVRCHES’ brand new label, Goodbye Records, ahead of an NME Awards show with the band (Scala, February 17) and extensive European dates (including two sold-out dates at The Forum). ‘Blud’ was written after overhearing an argument and explores the possibilities of change thereafter. The effect is curiously uplifting, seemingly as inspired by a childhood of Joni Mitchell albums as the brooding productions of Cat Power.
