One of our very favourite groovers Róisín Murphy is coming to Boiler Shop in Newcastle this May. Woo! Hoo!

Róisín Murphy really flash-lit 2018 with her series of 12”s on The Vinyl Factory label. There were eight tracks in total including the awesome ‘Jacuzzi Rollercoaster’, surely one of the very best cuts of the year. And they all displayed her uncanny knack of producing music that straddles all of the best genres at once – I’m talking pop, house and freeform thrills. Of course, she also has an outstanding back catalogue to draw from including some of the best albums released over the last ten years such as 2016’s ‘Take Her Up to Monto’ and 2015’s Mercury nominated ‘Hairless Toys’. She has more charm, chutzpah and ideas that most of her peers put together and she remains an utterly charismatic live performer. See you down the front.

Róisín Murphy, Sunday 19 May, Boiler Shop, South Street, Newcastle, 7pm, £20. boilershop.net
