The extravagant Irish singer, Mercury Award nominee and one of the most innovative artists Róisín Murphy will perform in all three Baltic countries within her tour on the latest album "Róisín Machine".
Róisín Murphy guards over her songwriting career like a lioness protecting its cubs and with good reason. A quick glance, from leftfield downtempo bangers like “Party Weirdo” to Top Of The Pops, smashes like “The Time Is Now” and “Sing It Back” with Moloko and a wildly divergent solo career that has flitted joyfully from Italian song to powerhouse tracks like “Let Me Know” means she has stealthily developed into Britain’s most innovative and restless artist.
“I’m actually proud of every record I’ve made and that’s an amazing thing to be able to say,” confesses Róisín Murphy. “Couldn’t pick a favorite. If there’s going to be an ultimate success story with my career it would be that the catalog’s going to mean something solid in the future.”
The idea for the latest album “Róisín Machine” began ten years ago. “Originally we started off like we were making an LP,” recalls DJ Parrot – aka Crooked Man – with whom Murphy first worked in the late 90s. “Róisín rang up one day and said she wanted to make some house music and off we went”. The album was nominated for the Irish “Choice Music Prize” as "Album of the Year", Pitchfork ranked 17th among the top 50 albums of 2020, and NME ranked 21st among the Top 50 albums of 2020. The Rolling Stones song “Murphy’s Law” ranked 32nd among the top 50 songs of 2020 and the BBC Culture album included among “The best 2020 albums and songs of the year ”.
One of the few joys of the lockdown was Róisín’s YouTube channel, an oasis of Alice In Wonderland antics, club-kid performance art, live vocal performances, with hallucinogenic shape-shifting visuals, always offset beautifully by her usual sartorial flair and exhibitionism. More and more Roisin comes across as a performer in full control of the performance and the art.
“Everything I do is from the gut,” she says. “I’m always up to something, I’ve been directing videos and art-directing for years. The album is called “Róisín Machine” because I am a machine. I never stop.”
Róisín Murphy has attracted considerable attention and praise for her eccentric sense of fashion, which is also evident in the singer's concerts. It is skillfully combined with the artist's musical creativity, making the concert experience even more memorable.
