Soak: “B a noBody”
When we first came across Soak, the young Irish singer/songwriter had just signed to Goodbye Records and released the title-track from her debut EP “Blud.” Now she’s signed to Rough Trade and is releasing even more great music. With “B a noBody,” Soak continues to explore moody, atmospheric ballads, this time with a more grandiose quality. Sure it’s still an intimate folk song (at the beginning at least) and its message of comforting anonymity feels deeply personal, but the track aims higher than her other music. It feels more anthemic. Her songwriting has always been powerful, and this bigger arrangement works perfectly with her infectious melodies.
