Talented Irish singer-songwriter with sensitive songs

The debut album Before we forgot how to dream of the very young SOAK hit like a bomb in 2015. It was – rightly so – hailed Album of the Year by the Irish Choice Music Prize. Last May the singer-songwriter Bridie Monds-Watson released their third album under the moniker SOAK. If I never know you like this again features lots of beautiful sensitive songs about the search for identity. 

‘This brilliant album sets them up for a thrilling future, where anything is possible’, The Irish Times wrote – and we can only fully agree with that. SOAK creates a lovely mix of indie music with a touch of postpunk influences. They seldom perform in the Netherlands, which makes SOAK’s performance at our festival extra special.
