#57 Sorcha Richardson - Petrol Station

Lyrically driven and electronically sensual, New York-based, Irish Sorcha Richardson's latest single 'Petrol Station' is direct, bare and incredible. 

'Petrol Station' and its B-side 'With My Friends' are out now and she has several Summer shows planned across the USA.

Sorcha Richardson's natural tone and beautiful undulating melody are only rivalled by the racing lyrics. Even the chorus, although certainly catchy and summarising, is almost difficult to keep up with as her mind and mouth move faster than our ears. The song structure is an amazing element; as though it's only there to serve whatever anecdotal lyric is relevant to Richardson next, rather than to give the song a foundation. 'Petrol Station' has to be listened to more than once just to feel that you've actually caught it all.

The synth pads, tuned percussion and minimal production aren't new to us listeners, but the electronic focus is certainly newer for Richardson. We're hooked.

 

STALKER RESOURCES:

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BUT LEAVE A COMMENT ANYWAY

Described as Scandi minimalists, our SOTW Junodef are chillingly good.

Svartanatt are so rock n roll they don't even need to put an inverted comma at the end of their latest single, 'Drivin'.

How many kids from Leeds does it take to make a stone-cold killer track? Six.
