Irish singer songwriter SOAK immediately caught my attention over half a year ago with debut single Blud, a magical piece of unique and earnest music that reminded many of a blend of Lykke Li, Tegan and Sara, and Cat Power. SOAK was the very first artist signed to CHVRCHES’ singles label Goodbye Records, a testament to her talent. Her extraordinary voice and remarkable style was captivating from the get go. Now, SOAK has signed to Rough Trade Records, and she’s released a new single. B a noBody is a tender and gentle acoustic song, out on 7" come November 3. It’s beautiful and weightless, carrying the same raw vulnerability that exuded so poignantly on Blud. Revisit Blud below.

SOAK covers Tegan and Sara’s Back In Your Head

June 9, 2014

Irish singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist SOAK, who first stormed onto my radar with her beautiful debut song Blud, has been touring supporting Canadian duo Tegan and Sara. From the very first time I heard Blud, I could tell there was something brilliant about SOAK and her folk pop style. She was the first artist signed to CHVRCHES’ Goodbye Records earlier this year, and for good reason at that. I compared her sound to Lykke Li, Cat Power, and even Tegan and Sara back when I featured Blud. To commemorate her tour with Tegan and Sara, Soak posted this amazing cover of the twins’ song Back In Your Head on YouTube. I searched high and low for a SoundCloud stream, and may have to reshare this when there is one. The cover sent shivers and chills up and down my spine the whole way through. Incredible.

CHVRCHES remixed Soak’s Blud

February 27, 2014

I’ve been raving about this young new Irish singer songwriter by the name of Soak and her debut single Blud, comparing her to earlier Tegan and Sara mixed with some Lykke Li and a dash of Cat Power. As mentioned multiple times, Soak is the first artist signed to CHVRCHES new label Goodbye Records. It only makes sense that today, CHVRCHES released an delicious¬†remix of Blud, which debuted on Nylon Magazine.¬†As we’d expect to hear from CHVRCHES, the new remix is flooded with captivating, dreamy electropop beats full of lustrous gleam. Revisit the original, here. Again, keep an eye on Soak. CHVRCHES obviously thinks you should, too.

OFFICIAL VID: Soak – Blud

February 12, 2014

One of my most popular features last week was my introduction of a young new Irish musician by the name of Soak and her debut single Blud. The newcomer is the very first signing to CHVRCHES’ brand new label Goodbye Records, and what a statement they’ve made with their first client, who sounds entirely different from the electropop band’s music with her folksy flavored Lykke Li meets Cat Power style. This week, Soak released her first official music video for the delicate, yet raw Blud. Soak will also release her first EP on March 17.

Hailing from Ireland is a new singer songwriter by the name of Soak, aka young 17 year old Bridie Monds-Watson. Soak is the very first artist to be signed to Scottish electropop band CHVRCHES’ new label Goodbye Records, and for good reason at that. I don’t know what’s going on with all these young talented artists these days (ie. Lorde), but Soak is extremely adept when it comes to music. She’s a multi-instrumentalist, and she plays everything on her beautiful debut song Blud. The enchanting song easily evokes comparison to Lykke Li, mixed with a touch of early Tegan & Sara and some raw, soulfulness of Cat Power.
