If you weren’t already feeling the Friday #feels, Dublin’s Sorcha Richardson is here to hammer them home.
Releasing stunning piano-led ‘Honey’, the slow-burning song is driven by Sorcha’s delicate vocals as she describes falling head-over-heels for someone and subsequently wondering “what the hell” they did to you.
“I wrote ‘Honey’ one night in the middle of winter, sitting at the upright piano in the house that I grew up in in Dublin,” she explains. “It was one of the the first songs that I wrote after deciding that I was going to make an album, and it helped me figure out a lot about what the album would be. With this song in particular, it feels like the less I say about it, the better. But I guess it’s just my attempt to articulate how it feels when somebody new comes into your life, very unexpectedly, flips your world on its head. And you’re just scrambling in the wreckage of whatever that is, trying make sense of it all.”
It’s the latest taste of her debut LP ‘First Prize Bravery’ that will be released next month!
