Avant-Disco-Pop queen Róisín Murphy has announced the forthcoming release of her fist full length record in eight years. Yup, Overpowered was eight years ago! Surely that can’t be right? The new album is titled Hairless Toys and is due out next month. Check out the first single from the record, Gone Fishing, below.
The former Moloko singer serves up a typically ecclectic tune on Gone Fishing. From the purcussion to the layers of synth burbling, everything is meticulously crafted. Part experimental soundtrack, part mid-90s freeform Disco groover, Gone Fishing surprises at every turn in both it’s compelling funkiness and it’s mysterious depth. Ms Murphy’s vocals are as striking as ever and seem to draw you into the track. This all bodes very well for the album.
