MNJ New Music Spotlight: LAOISE
TODAY’S NEW MUSIC SPOTLIGHT IS ON LAOISE.
Location: Galway, Ireland
About: LAOISE is an electro-pop artist hailing from Galway, Ireland. Her music incorporates elements of synth, soul and alternative pop. She grew up surrounded by traditional Irish music and having learnt to play the fiddle at the age of 5, she would regularly attend traditional Irish sessions at her local Galway pub. It was this sense of togetherness through music that made her want to pursue being a musician as a career.
What MNJ say: LAOISE is a slice of electro-pop perfection who has is on the cusp of something big! Her latest track ‘Again’ with its infectious underlying synth bass line we firmly believe should be on everyones playlists! Very clever track!
Previous track ‘Bother’ clocks in at just over 3-minutes and manages to convey a familiar tale of a relationship that has turned sour in a way that feels remarkably original and deeply powerful.
The track started as a slow piano song, with this original focus on lyricism paying off as ‘Bother‘ proves itself to be thoughtful, relatable and intelligent.
