Incorporating elements of synth and alternative pop, these four songs, co-written and co-produced by Seán Behan and Richey McCourt, embody everything Laoise’s audience have come to love and more. Featuring the critically acclaimed single ‘Again’, the four-track EP is her most honest and sincere work yet, making it an ambitious next step.
With three new buoyant songs to revel in, the EP's lead single 'Mad' showcases a more audacious side to the 22-year-old songwriter from Galway. The quirky track depicts the story of that moment in life when you decide to no longer accept a situation that you’re unhappy with; it's that moment of self-awareness where you let your gut instinct cut through, and let your voice be heard. Laoise drew on past experiences of negative relationships- personal and professional – to present the fun but fierce lyric. Sonically, ‘Mad’ is a bed of pop hooks and lush backing vocals balanced with industrial synths sweeping throughout and a defiant build that centres on the song’s direct, simple but candid line, “And now I’m getting mad.”
Laoise (pronounced Lee-sha) has built a growing listenership for her dreamy, ambitious and frank pop songs about relationships and heartbreak, often with darker, moodier, more introspective lyrics and juxtaposed with upbeat electro and synth production. Laoise records, produces and releases her music completely independently. She’s become known for presenting her own brand of bold, glittering, gutsy electro-pop – paving the way for Irish-born pop music.
Taking her cues from the silky production of acts like Tove Styrke, Troye Sivan and MØ, Laoise incorporates elements of synth, indie and alternative pop into her music. She is also is deeply inspired by household names like Kate Bush and David Bowie, as well as the different musical personas of Taylor Swift.
