Melancholic pop storytelling.
Dublin singer-songwriter Sorcha Richardson has released her sophomore album, Smiling Like An Idiot via Faction Records.
The follow-up to 2019’s First Prize Bravery examines Richardson’s experience of Dublin life throughout the last couple of years. It’s a canny release that sets direct lyrical observations against a backdrop of warm folk-pop guitars and speckles of synth.
“It mostly tracks one specific relationship,” Richardson explains. “It’s about falling in love with a person and a place, which in this case is Dublin, and how those two are interlinked.”
Smiling Like An Idiot is now available to buy on black or limited eco-mix vinyl. Check out the artwork and tracklist below.
