WATCH: SON shares her cover of U2's 'Exit' exclusively with Hot Press

The husky-voiced backing singer with Propeller Palms and King Kong Company, Susan O'Neill, aka SON, showed up at Hot Press HQ to do a cover of U2's 'Exit' as part of Hot Press' celebration of the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree.

And what a result. Doing huge justice to the lyrical content of the song (delving into the increasingly unhinged mind of a psychotic killer), Susan proves once again why she's one of the hottest Irish prospects for 2017. In the video shot and directed by Rowan Stokes, her backing guitarist Mark Shortall also works magnificently to execute those Edge-inspired stadium-sized delays.

A powerful rendition, it is well worth hearing and sharing. Take a look here:
