Currently brightening up our summer with a series of stonking club tunes, Róisín Murphy is as eloquent and literate a pop star as Ireland's ever produced. As she prepares to bring the funk to All Together Now, the divine Ms. M talks music, film, family, Twitter storms, liberal Ireland and shaking a leg with Stuart Clark.
You know that phrase "talking nineteen to the dozen"? Well, in time honoured Spinal Tap tradition, Róisín Murphy has managed to add an extra word and make it twenty to the dozen.
"Sorry, I'm bending your ear," she laughs throatily. "Once I get into my flow there's no stopping me!"
She can bend away all she wants. Funny, self-deprecating and, at times, disarmingly honest, the 42-year-old Arklow songstress is as eloquent and literate a pop star as this country has ever produced.
