Irish folk singer Sorcha Richardson and New Jersey duo Fortunate Ones have showed us the fruit of their New York-based labours in two lovely tracks ‘Coast’ and ‘Central Park’ and this week they released the five-track Cocoon Bloom EP for a nice free download. You can donate too.
‘Central Park’ and ‘Coast’ have already showed the trio are working in an electronic disco world with some rap verses and of the previously unreleased tracks – ‘Daymare’ is more direct electronic guitar pop, ‘Coyote’ works a more upbeat angle and ‘Alaska’ has a more indie-pop vibe.
Richardson remains in control throughout the release, hers is a voice that is suitable for all these sounds – pleasing and distinctive. She still sounds young but her adept handling of harmonies and memorable melodies ties the whole thing together.
Just in time for the end of the year, the 44th Nialler9 podcast features great tracks that didn’t make my top 50 albums or top 100 songs list that deserved a bit more love. 14 tracks and 70 minutes in total with me babbling in between. Enjoy.
Irish singer Sorcha Richardson and New Jersey duo Fortunate Ones’ rap/electro-pop project CON VOS gave us the sprightly funk of ‘Central Park’ in October. There’s an EP on the way called Cocoon Bloom early next year and judging by the two tracks so far, the trio are offering something a bit different from the norm.
‘Coast’ features ’80s-style electronic production As the group are New York-based, Fortunate Ones add a rap verse to the track’s breakdown and Sorcha’s ever-growing talent as a singer is evident. Richardson really is suited to these kinds of productions.
Folk singer Sorcha Richardson has proved her talents on acoustic instruments (see last week’s Last Train EP) but with new project Con VOS, the New York-based Irish musician is delving more into electro dancefloor pop grooves on the first track ‘Central Park’ from the project’s forthcoming five-track Cocoon Bloom EP.
The track has a ‘Around The World’-esque Daft Punk robo-bassline, with treated handclaps and a rap by Genetics, one half of New Jersey hip-hop duo Fortunate Ones who is also on production duties and along with his partner make up the group along with Sorcha.
