The 2015 breakout star is working her way back into the music scene with a new single and a stop at the Workman's Club in November.
The ongoing We Are Workman's series at the Workman's Club in Dublin has today announced Naoise Roo will take the stage on 1 November.
Naoise Roo broke into the Irish music scene with her 2015 debut album, Lilith which was met with great acclaim. The musical styles range from hard grunge, to ambient electronica, lush indie rock and Jacque Brel-channeling burlesque. The diverse influences in her music have drawn comparisons to Radiohead, PJ Harvey, Nick Cave and Amanda Palmer. The LP was produced by Elder Roche (Myles Manley) and engineered by Liam Mulvaney (Girl Band, Buffalo Sunn), and features guest vocals from Sive and songwriter Joey Gavin.
More recently, Roo broke back into the realm of music with her single, 'Black Hole'. She will also be releasing her debut EP, Sick Girlfriend early next year. Sick Girlfriend is a four-track exploration of themes surrounding depression, the challenges of the music industry, and the oppressive stereotypes that burden women experiencing mental illness.
Roo's music is known for dealing with themes of heartbreak, desire and female identity and stylistically ranges from powerfully emotional indie rock to delicate ambient electronic, visceral hard grunge to wryly flirtatious chanson.
The 'We Are' series has been curated as a conglomeration of the myriad musical and artistic genres that are represented in The Workman’s Club each week. Musical acts, comedy shows, talks, and lectures will all be presented with the goal of showcasing, “new ideas and new ways of looking at the world.”
“This is a chance to celebrate the uniqueness of our art scene,” The Workman’s Club said, “to help showcase something new and to bring something fresh to the scene.”
Tickets are available for her 1 November gig here for €11.00
