She of the incredible dress sense, straight sass, pop pleasures and Moloko fame invites us for a Fireside Chat. Sing it back.
Ms _(artist-name)Róisín Murphy_’s life took a turn one day at a party, when she took a liking to producer Mark Brydon and introduced herself by saying “Do you like my tight sweater? See how it fits my body”. Her singing experience thus far had been limited to the shower and she had no aspirations of singing professionally. However the creative (and romantic) sparks flew between Mark and Róisín, and _(artist-name)Moloko_ was born. The pair combined dance and funk elements in a haphazard and quirky way and should never have been lumped in to the dreaded trip-hop tag with peers _(artist-name)Portishead_ and _(artist-name)Massive Attack_. For a start, their music always had a very upfront sense of humour, and topped with Róisín’s incredible dress sense, stage presence and straight sass, they were always a very unique proposition. After four successful albums, the pair inevitably went their separate ways and Róisín launched her solo career with forward-thinking electronic producer _(artist-name)Matthew Herbert_, who had previously worked on Moloko’s _(album-title)Sing It Back_. 2005’s _(album-title)Ruby Blue_ was released to the masses, followed by _(album-title)Overpowered_, which saw her collaborating with _(artist-name)Seiji_ of _(artist-name)Bugz In The Attic_ amongst numerous others.
