SOAK

SOAK Joshua Halling
The Youthful Perspective Of SOAK, 19 Year-old Irish Singer Songwriter Bridie Monds-Watson
SOAK is the band name for 19 year old Bridie Monds-Watson from Derry in Northern Ireland. She has recently released her self-titled debut full-length album. It contains recent songs but also very personal songs from back with she was as young as 14. While it is remarkable that someone that young can write so articulately about concerns like divorce and a friend’s bullying, it is more remarkable that the songs themselves are so good. It’s definitely a perspective we don’t often hear.
