While I might be a later arrival to Sorcha Richardson, the Dublin-born, Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter has been carving quite a name for herself with a series of gorgeous slices of guitar pop.
Richardson’s latest single ‘4AM’ is nothing short of phenomenal. While this brooding, late-night anthem marks a significant sonic evolution, Richardson’s vocals and captivating storytelling remains front and centre. The track revolves around a contrast between sweetness and harsher production, as Richardson’s vocals teeter above booming piano, dizzying synths and antagonistic bass. A pensive, introspective and captivating cut with a hazy late night vibe (and the conversational chronicling also brings to mind Kate Tempest).
Better late than never, yeah? In fact my better half is responsible for putting me on to Richardson’s beguiling sounds; she’s got good taste obviously.
Listen to ‘4AM’ below. It does not disappoint.
