When she realised her debut album ‘Before We Forgot How to Dream,’ it was clear SOAK was special. 19-year-old Bridie Monds-Watson hails from Derry in Ireland and writes wise-before-her years perceptions that will make you think differently about the world. Immersive, truthful and compelling, her songwriting is a breath of fresh air in such an over-saturated industry.
So, it’s no surprise then that she’s been shortlisted for this year’s Mercury Music Prize. Whilst many of the other nominations could be labelled 6Music safe options, SOAK is a rare talent that is steadily getting the recognition she deserves. Expect an incredibly special set, where you’ll gain a glimpse into what makes her so special.
