SOAK returns with her 2nd album in 4 years in the form of Grim Town. SOAK had, arguably, more to process than most her age. One of the Mercury Prize’s youngest ever nominees, her debut album Before We Forgot How To Dream kickstarted an extraordinary teenage journey. The album also saw her win the prestigious Choice Music Prize for Album of the Year, the Northern Irish Music Prize, and the European Border Breaker Award, in addition to being shortlisted for a Q Award. Her astonishingly assured, emotionally mature songwriting was often hailed as wise beyond its years; but, as her new album often asks, when do we ever truly shake off those childlike fears, the imposter-syndrome, the outsider-status? The term ‘to come of age’ lands with so much expectation, but with Grim Town, Bridie dissolves all such assuredness with imaginative, ambitious, and cathartic results.
