The Muses of La Musa: Sorcha Richardson
Irish singer-songwriter Sorcha Richardson has been cultivating a cult fanbase for several years. Songs such as ‘Ruin Your Night’, ‘Petrol Station’ and ‘Can’t We Pretend’ are evocative vignettes of a moment in time which find the poetry in introspection, with a tangible nod to key influences such as Sharon Van Etten, Arcade Fire, Phoebe Bridgers and Julia Jacklin.
Last year, Richardson released the biggest artistic statement of her career with her debut album, First Prize Bravery. It’s a collection of lyrical snapshots of life as a twentysomething, accompanied by the desires, doubts and developments that the decade delivers.
Following her 2019 debut album, Sorcha Richardson has shared her brand new single ‘The Starlight Lounge’, co-produced by James Vincent McMorrow.

Vida Festival 2019
Last year during the fifth anniversary of the Vida music festival, they announced that British band The Charlatans would be headliners for the 2019 edition, and since then the international festival, which takes place in natural surrounds in nearby Vilanova i la Geltrú, has carried on bringing in more Anglo-based pop, rock, electronic and folk acts.
For example, you’ll also get to see veteran band Madness, who have been mixing pop, punk and ska in their eternal hits for some 40 years. Also among the first confirmed are house-pop from Londoners Hot Chip; magic folk with hints of Balkan sounds from Beirut; a new, sharper and more powerful sound from American artist Sharon Van Etten, presenting her new album; punk-pop from American band Superchunk; Él Mató a un Policía Motorizado, bringing alternative rock from Argentina; folk songs from Australians Stella Donnelly and Didirri; pop singer-songwriter Joan Colomo from right here in Catalonia; and elegant electronica from Catalan artist Carla.
Vida 2019 is on from Thursday, July 4 to Sunday, July 7 in the woodsy area of the Masía d’en Cabanyes in Vilanova i la Geltrú.
Hit of the week: Sharon Van Etten “Comeback Kid”
Sharon Van Etten has shared her new song “Comeback Kid,” the first single off her forthcoming album Remind Me Tomorrow, out Jan. 18, 2019, on Jagjaguwar. The album is her first in nearly five years, following 2014’s Are We There.
“Comeback Kid” is the sound of glimmering street lights flitting by on a nighttime power-drive, a thoroughly darker and more driving sound than her work on Are We There.
