SOAK is 17-year-old Irish singer-songwriter Bridie Monds-Watson, and the first artist to be signed to CHVRCHES’ label, Goodbye Records. With a stirring set of emotive pipes and a raw sense of adolescent lyricism, her brand of folk is one of unsettling beauty and ardent honesty, inspired by the likes of Joni Mitchell and Cat Power. Take for example her latest, “24 Windowed House”. Though gentle at first glance, SOAK bares her teeth (and soul) by the track’s burning end. Check it out below.
“24 Windowed House” is taken from SOAK’s new Blud EP, out this week via Goodbye Records.
