Donegal based singer songwriter Rosie Carney has made a cover version of New York group Cigarettes After Sex’s 2012 single ‘K’. Her work is described as songs that feel lived-in and worn, conveying a bruised ache well beyond her years and her voice has “Bon Iver-esque tenderness, Laura Marling-like strength, and the haunting awareness of both”.
Laura Marling gave us one of 2017’s best albums in Semper Femina, but already she’s back and prepping to release a follow-up. The forthcoming full-length is called LUMP and marks the first collaboration between Marling and Mike Lindsay, founding member of Tunng and Throws. Together, they go by the name LUMP.
Their debut LP was recorded in Lindsay’s London studio and has a June 1st release date through Dead Oceans. Lindsay handled the music while Marling was in charge of the lyrics and vocals. Per a press release, Marling’s contributions are described as “a bizarre but compelling narrative about the commodification of curated public personas, the mundane absurdity of individualism, and the lengths we go to escape our own meaninglessness.”
