ROISIN MURPHY - 'Overpowered'
Irish electro chanteuse ROISIN MURPHY returns this summer with the brand new album "Overpowered", her follow-up to the 2005 solo debut "Ruby Blue". The title track serves as the first single, which also comes accompanied with a strange video of Murphy finishing a show, then taking the bus home in an over-the-top, atrocious checkered dress that gives one the feeling Roisin is poking fun at fellow art-electro-chick Alison Goldfrapp. It's hard not to draw the GOLDFRAPP comparisons, but remember, Roisin's originally the singer for MOLOKO, an electronic act that made a splash back in 1995, a good few years prior to Goldfrapp. Then again, Alison Goldfrapp appeared on ORBITAL's 'Are We Here?' in 1994.
These comparisons are all in good fun, as both are uniquely captivating and deserving of your attention.
