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.

Hmm, I’m a little perturbed that I never got around to sharing this amazing debut song from a Sydney trio named Mansionair prior to today. Well, with CHVRCHES’ announcement of Mansionair’s debut EP as the next release on their label Goodbye Records, there’s no better time to do so. The debut EP will be out October 14 in the US and include several remixes of this song, Hold Me Down, a spectacular song carrying much brooding atmosphere and mesmerizing production. In fact, I detect a little Glass Animals slinkiness in the seductive gem, as well as plenty of mid-tempo, Foals like dance rock blended with haunting, chill electronic ambiance. It’s all topped off with some very smooth and beautiful vocals by fellow Austrlian act Revier.

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.

Soak – The Mother We Share (CHVRCHES Cover)

April 3, 2014

Young, talented Irish singer songwriter Soak enchanted me the moment I first heard the first few bars of her debut single Blud. I immediately loved her unique sound which seemed to integrate bits and pieces of Lykke Li, Cat Power, and even Tegan and Sara. Soak apparently bewitched Scottish electropop stars CHVRCHES, too, since Soak is the very first artist signed to their label Goodbye Records. It’s only fitting that today, Soak offered up a cover of CHVRCHES’ The Mother We Share on The Line Of Best Fit, and it’s a stunning cover, at that. It places the animated, synthy song in a whole other dimmed, poignant, sorrowful light. While enjoying this amazing cover, I learned that I’d somehow missed a new Soak track a few weeks ago that followed on the heels of Blud. Stream the incandescent, introspective 24 Windowed House below.

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.
