Former lead singer of the very successful indie-dance group Moloko, Murphy’s solo material breaks away from the traditional Moloko sound to become a bit more electro and funked up, but at the same time, her songs are often chill-out material. With a haunting but beautiful voice, Roisin’s unusual vocals carry the trippy sound of her solo material whilst putting her own inimitable style on every single song that she writes and produces. Check out her shows on Saturday May 16th at The Roundhouse or Eventim Apollo Hammersmith on the 27th November 2015.
