PREMIERE: Naoise Roo – ‘Sick Girlfriend’

A slow-burning guitar tune that satirizes the representation of women with mental health issues; ‘Sick Girlfriend’ is the latest single from Irish artist Naoise Roo, set for release on 27th March. The track is lifted from her upcoming EP of the same name, due on 24th April.

Produced by Liam Mulvaney (Girl Band, The Radio, Fionn Regan) and featuring Daniel Fox (Girl Band) on bass and Rian Trench (Solar Bears) on drums and synths; Naoise Roo’s new EP is an exploration of women’s experiences in the music industry, and the stereotypes that continue to burden women who struggle with poor mental health.

Speaking about the eponymous track, Naoise explains: “I wanted to write something that showed the objectification that I’ve seen depicted, and in turn, the reality I’ve experienced within relationships having suffered with mental health issues all my life”. Despite these setbacks, Naoise continues to move forward by creating relatable, optimistic indie offerings.

LISTEN: Marty – ‘Fame’

A poppy lament about the desire to be in the spotlight, Nottingham newcomers Marty have shared their new single ‘Fame’. After working as solo artists, the trio came together to create their uplifting brand of girl power pop just over a year ago.

Influenced by the likes of McFly, Fleetwood Mac, Tori Kelly, JP Cooper and Busted, Marty have performed live at the B&K Riverside Festival stage and The Maze twice. They’ve also supported artists such as You Want Fox and Rob Green.
