Sorcha Richardson's Petrol Station has a number of things going for it. In the verses her vocals have just enough exposure to feel like a contemporary reimagining of Tom's Diner. In the chorus overdubbed vocals and heavier waves of synth create an infectious sense of forward momentum. The whole thing is tied up in a bow of mournful autumnal sense of neediness that feel irresistible. I just want to wrap it up in a warm hug.
Sorcha Richardson is an Irish-born New York-resident musician and Petrol Station follows a number of festival performances in Ireland and both headline shows and festival appearances in the US. Having moved to New York five years ago Richardson won over audiences with her bedroom recorded EP Sleep Will Set Me Free, which attracted 200,000 plays on Soundcloud, followed by her Last Train EP, released via Crosswalk Records/Delicieuse Musique.
Petrol Station will be released on May the 26th with a number of summer shows planned across the USA in 2015.
