“Punk is musical freedom. It’s saying, doing and playing what you want. In Webster’s terms, ‘nirvana’ means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that’s pretty close to my definition of punk rock.” - Kurt Cobain
Irish singer songwriter SOAK immediately caught my attention over half a year ago with debut single Blud, a magical piece of unique and earnest music that reminded many of a blend of Lykke Li, Tegan and Sara, and Cat Power. SOAK was the very first artist signed to CHVRCHES’ singles label Goodbye Records, a testament to her talent. Her extraordinary voice and remarkable style was captivating from the get go. Now, SOAK has signed to Rough Trade Records, and she’s released a new single. B a noBody is a tender and gentle acoustic song, out on 7" come November 3. It’s beautiful and weightless, carrying the same raw vulnerability that exuded so poignantly on Blud. Revisit Blud below.
