SOAK.
SOAK has won widespread praise, and comparisons ranging from Laura Marling to Cat Power, for her textured tales of adolescence, family and friendship. Still just 18 years old, Bridie Monds-Watson has been performing in her home of Derry since the age of 14, where she'd split her time between studying, the local skate-park, and her burgeoning songwriting (touring in the school holidays, and launching Derry's City of Culture hours before a GCSE exam). Then, in 2014 she became the first signing to CHVRCHES' singles label, releasing the beautiful 'Blud' and touring with the likes of George Ezra and Tegan & Sara. In the same summer that most of her friends got their ALevel results, SOAK penned an album deal with Rough Trade Records and aired the beautiful 'B a noBody'.

Her forthcoming album will cement Bridie Monds-Watson's ascent from a raw talent to a unique artistic voice for 2015 ("a vivid portrait of teenage deep-thinking…intricate, ambiguous psychodramas" Guardian)

Abi Reimold
Abi Reimold of Philadelphia writes dynamic, cathartic songs that are darkly colorful. Rough around the edges in a way that is more honest than careless, Reimold's music has a distinctly human quality about it. Unpredictable yet natural, Reimold's songwriting style builds tension using dissonance both harmonically and lyrically. Her voice rides a range of octaves and emotions, exploring dark inner worlds, adeptly contouring melodies to starkly vivid lyrics. Reimold introduced her EP "FORGET" in February 2014 and releasing her debut full-length in January 2016. Reimold has recently shared bills with Jesica Lea Mayfield, World Inferno Friendship Society, Francis Quinlan of Hop Along and Saintseneca.

“ FORGET is artful, complex, challenging and uncomfortable at times, and the scenes constructed by the vivid lyrics will stay with you.” --The Key
