Sorcha Richardson is a story-teller. Songs – born out of her New York apartment – revolve around relatable experiences, the people we meet and the places we go. The Dublin-born artist isn’t looking to paint herself as something she’s not though, and it gives the brilliantly DIY, slacker- rock earworm ‘Lost’ an honesty: “I know it’s bad baby c’mon we can dance it off / everybody’s feeling lost”, she cries. A rum-soaked, windswept night of young adventure forms another early theme and as we move into 2017, it’s clear Richardson has stories we are desperate to hear.
