Tickets to see Self Esteem (from €22.40) go on sale this Thursday at 10am via ticketmaster.ie.
Self Esteem has announced a new headline show at 3Olympia Theatre, Dublin on Sunday 26th February 2023. The performer delivered an incredible show in the Workman's Cellar last November for her Irish debut.
The singer-songwriter will also perform at Limelight Belfast on February 27th, 2023.
Rebecca Taylor has recently shared a new single version of her empowering track ‘You Forever’, taken from her hugely acclaimed second album Prioritise Pleasure, released in October 2021 via Fiction Records.
“Please enjoy this edit. V keen for this song about never getting over my girlfriend to get onto Love Island, if anyone can help with that,” Self Esteem jokes.
For over a decade, Rebecca appeared to be living the dream of countless artists – with five well-received albums and major international tours under her belt, as one half of indie duo Slow Club. But it was a world she was feeling increasingly disconnected from. Behind the scenes, she was quietly plotting a bold new solo vision of her own, while simultaneously attempting to fight off her deep-set insecurities.
After splitting away from Slow Club, that vision eventually found life as Self Esteem, a dazzlingly defiant pop project through which Rebecca has explored sexuality, misogyny, vulnerabilities, frustrations and personal relationships with little or no inhibitions.
Taylor is currently on a sold out tour of the UK playing the biggest shows of her career. Herself and her band have played at Manchester, London and Taylor’s hometown of Sheffield to follow after a trip to the US for her first shows as Self Esteem.
Last month it was also announced that Taylor will be composing the soundtrack for the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play Prima Facie, starring Jodie Comer, who said: “I am such a huge fan of Rebecca and everything she stands for - her voice, her words and her honesty. I can’t think of a more perfect person to compose the music for our production.”
Self Esteem was also nominated for the Best New Artist award at last month’s BRIT Awards and saw her grace the covers of Sunday Times Style and Time Out magazines.
Featuring the acclaimed singles ‘I Do This All The Time,’ ‘Prioritise Pleasure’, ‘How Can I Help You’ and ‘Moody’, Prioritise Pleasure is a remarkable step up from Rebecca Taylor’s 2019 debut Compliments Please.
The project sheds light on important issues around female autonomy, comparison culture, self-doubt, heartbreak, sexual assault, comparison culture and self-acceptance; comforted and counter-balanced with an array of rhythmic flourishes that speak to the eclecticism of her experience and influence.
