Róisín O Shares New Single ‘2023’

Irish singer and songwriter Róisín O has just shared her brand new single 2023, the second single to be taken from her upcoming EP set to arrive later this year. 

I am loving her rich, powerful vocals and how they easily convey the emotion of her storytelling. I am very fond of the intro which starts quite warm and intimate with delicate piano chords backing her powerful, emotive vocal delivery. Then the song slowly starts building up with energy and pace with the introduction of an infectious driving beat that instantly gave me an extra dose of energy to go through my day. 

The blend of emotive piano chords with an infectious electronic driving beat and punchy drums really makes the song quite memorable with the sax making it stand out even more. 2023 is inspired by the lockdowns and shares a message of optimism and hope to the future. Have a listen to this feel-good pop summer banger below!



Speaking about the single Roísín says,

I wrote 2023 in the depths of the 2nd lockdown in Ireland when things were pretty grim. It was a great respite to get into studio with Cian, he has such a contagious, refreshing optimism, and the more we worked on the song the more it became about looking forward to the future with optimism and hope. The release of ‘2023’ comes at such a great time, when the summer is stretching out in front of us and we can imagine being with pals again in a garden, or a field, or a beer garden somewhere. That’s when I imagine ‘2023’ will come on. And everyone will bop.
