What is there to say about Róisín? Visionary, Amazing, Exhibitionist? Our thesaurus just isn’t large enough…Neon Nights – 223 –

As the frontwoman and one half of UK-based, alternative dance-pop duo Moloko, Murphy celebrated a successful career throughout the 90s with mixer/producer Mark Brydon and their unique electronic partnership. Across their four studio albums the duo had a number of hit singles including ‘Sing It Back’, ‘The Time Is Now’, ‘Pure Pleasure Seeker’ and ‘Indigo’. Merging their sassy, eccentric and unconventional brand of electronic music, the band became known as one of the most iconic dance acts of the era.

Since launching her solo career following the disbandment of Moloko in 2002, Murphy has revealed her wonderfully idiosyncratic music, fashion and performance sensibilities. Across her four solo studio albums, Ruby Blue, Overpowered, Hairless Toys and Take Her Up To Monto she has received widespread critical acclaim including nominations for the Mercury Music Prize and Ireland’s Choice Music Prize. She has also released a host of hit singles including ‘Overpowered’, ‘Ramalama (Bang Bang)’, ‘Dear Miami’, ‘You Know Me Better’ and has collaborated with a number of musical influences including Matthew Herbert, Maurice Fulton and DJ Koze.

Transcending the barriers of genre by merging classic pop hooks, electronic, house and disco, Murphy continues to provide fans with captivating tracks including recent one-off single ‘Incapable’ (out now through Skint Records). Produced by long-time collaborator DJ Parrot aka Crooked Man, the new single is a shimmering, shuffling, club ready house track that has been met by universal acclaim.

Following a successful year in 2018 in which Murphy released a series of four 12” singles produced by Maurice Fulton and directed a series of companion videos for ‘All My Dreams’, ‘Plaything’, ‘Jacuzzi Rollercoaster’ and ‘The Rumble’, 2019 saw the re-release of 2007 record Overpowered. Murphy is also currently completing a run of festival performances across Europe and the UK before heading to Australia, where she performs in Melbourne today, and Sydney next week.
