Sorcha Richardson - "Petrol Station"
It's been a great week for new releases and the one I'm most excited about thus far is "Petrol Station" from Sorcha Richardson. There are a few groups that have been standbys for me since Bochi Crew started in 2012 and Sorcha Richardson is certainly one of them. The New York based Irish musician has developed tremendously through her solo work and work with CON VOS.
In her most recent effort, the stripped down acoustic has made way for a synth heavy, thumping tune. The best part? Richardson's lyrics still linger on just as hauntingly as they always have. Take the line:
"the grass stains on my shoes/and my rib cage is bruised/and that side of love you tasted/find that stuff you chase."It hits just as hard as lines on Sleep will set me free. Richardson has a knack for not only great lyricism, but for the even more important delivery. "Petrol Station" sees its release on May 26th followed by a number of summer shows. Catch her May 23 at Hotel Cafe in LA or June 19 at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC.
