Brooklyn based Irish singer songwriter Sorcha Richardson melts alt pop and finespun electronic pop on new single Waking Life to deliver a deeply moving experience. Waking Life is a windswept and bittersweet ballad that pairs the sprawling atmosphere of Gordi with the evocative thrumming, wistful rolling opulence of Maggie Rogers. It’s an epic motion picture encapsulated in four minutes of vividly rousing sound. “’Waking Life’ is a song I started writing around my last birthday,“ Sorcha says. "There’s something about birthdays that force you to pause and reflect on your life and take stock of where you’re at. Sometimes that’s a really fun and fulfilling thing to do but sometimes it can feel really shitty. I’ve spent a lot of my life saying to myself that ‘by the time I’m X years old, I’ll have overcome that fear, I’ll have worked out all those issues, I’ll have mended that relationship.’ This song is about getting to a point in life and suddenly realizing that your reality falls way short of the dream you were holding onto in your head. It’s about having no idea how to reconcile the discrepancies between the two, but also wondering how or why you thought it would be different. ​​​​​​” Download Waking Life, here.

I’m rarely up at 4am these days, but I’d imagine if I were, I’d probably be caught in a sleepless spell of solitary introspection. Sorcha Richardson’s new gem would be the perfect accompaniment. The Brooklyn by way of Dublin singer songwriter captures late night rumination on beautifully burbling alt pop dazzler 4AM, which she describes as being about not blaming yourself anymore when things go wrong and accepting final outcomes. Ladies, this is an empowering piece about not selling yourself short. 4AM’s entrancing loops and minimalist beats are reminiscent of Sylvan Esso and DYAN, but interchanged with a gentle touch imbued with earnest elegance and lithesome grace. I know I’d be content alone at 4AM, by myself, lost in Sorcha Richardson’s music. Purchase Sorcha Richardson’s new single from iTunes, here. Re-visit her prior offerings, here.

Sorcha Richardson’s new song may be named Ruin Your Night, but this Brooklyn based Dubliner has a tendency to make my day with her tunes. The singer songwriter waxes meditative over past relationships on her wistful billowing mixture of indie rock and dusty pop. Sorcha proves a masterful bard and a riveting musician yet again on Ruin Your Night, out now on iTunes.

It’s been a long year since New York based Irish singer songwriter Sorcha Richardson grabbed hold of our ears with her stunning alt electronic song Petrol Station. She must have been hard at work on creating brilliant new music, because she re-surfaces with some thoroughly magnificent material in the form of new single Walk Away. A deep brooding bass contrasts with Sorcha Richardson’s clarion vocals. In fact, the song seems deeply rooted in rigid dichotomy. Despite her airy gliding, delicately tender delivery and an atmospheric weightlessness, Sorcha Richardson’s Walk Away feels raw and tormented. The result is a stark moving experience that comes off deeply intimate and honest. Walk Away is part of a special project Sorcha Richardson has been working on that involves the consistent release of new music every few weeks for the next 6 months as well as a lot of offline fan engagement. There’s no “walking away” from what’s to come after hearing Walk Away. Purchase the song from iTunes.

We call petrol stations “gas stations” here in America, but after Sorcha Richardson swept me away with her gorgeous new song, I think I’m going to see things a little bit differently going forward. The New York based Irish artist is simply stunning on alt electronic song Petrol Statons, reminding me greatly of another amazing artist I just caught live a few days ago, Lapsley, with some hints of folksy Villagers, lush London Grammar, and delicate Daughters thrown in. The atmospheric yet cozy song will be released, along with B side With My Friends, on May 26th. Sorcha Richardson will also play a number of summer shows across the USA. I’m so there.
