SOAK’s first sin­gle for three years, ‘Ev­ery­body Loves You’, re­ceived its Irish premiere last week on To­day FM’s Paul McLoone Show – and a damn fine 3m 19secs of evoca­tive pop it is too!

“‘Ev­ery­body Loves You’ is a song about ex­treme de­nial,” Ms. Mond­sWat­son in­forms us. “More specif­i­cally about my stub­born abil­ity to con­vince my­self I don’t want some­thing that I do and blind my ra­tio­nal thought process – I sup­pose in this case, as a way of self-pro­tec­tion and avoid­ing vul­ner­a­bil­ity. The lift at the end of the song (‘Ev­ery­body wants you, And I do to’) rep­re­sents the al­most comedic/fool­ish ac­cep­tance of my own feel­ings. A 360 turn of events in which I then so des­per­ately want all that I had re­jected and pushed away. A con­sis­tent theme of my younger self.”

To get back in the live sad­dle, the now veteran 22-year-old is play­ing in­ti­mate shows in Oh Yeah, Belfast (Novem­ber 26) and The Grand So­cial, Dublin (27) be­fore hit­ting up sim­i­larly sized venues in Manch­ester and Lon­don.
