soak317-year-old Derry-Londonderry songwriter Soak – Bridie Monds-Watson – shares this clever remix by Chvrches for her mesmerizing single ‘Blud’ (released out March 17 via Chvrches’ Goodbye Records).

Here’s the video for ‘Blud’…

‘Blud’ was written after overhearing an argument and explores the possibilities of change thereafter. The effect is curiously uplifting, seemingly as inspired by a childhood of Joni Mitchell albums as the brooding productions of Cat Power. Bridie played every instrument on ‘Blud’ herself (bar the bass), which was produced in Donegal by Mercury-nominated Villagers’ guitarist Tommy McLaughlin.soak1Born in Belfast but raised in Derry, Soak offers vivid proof that age does not define artistic maturity…She describes herself as a “Short Irish kid who appreciates Dragons & Dinosaurs. Has wonky bottom teeth & writes song. Kind of funny sometimes.”
