Soak by Soak

From The Sampler, 7:30 pm on 2 June 2015

Melody Thomas immerses herself in the debut of Irish singer-songwriter Soak.

SoakDespite being just 18 years old at the time the album was made, Before We Forgot How to Dream is a highly anticipated debut. Irish musician Bridie Monds-Watson cuts an unassuming figure - small, quiet and dressed in baggy black - and her sweet, melodic voice comes as something of a surprise. Detailing the teen experience with considerable maturity and imagination, Soak transforms the act of feeling deeply to an album that triggers that same deep feeling in others.

Songs Featured: Sea Creatures, Shuvels, B a Nobody, Wait, Blud
