CURRENT: Róisín Murphy – “Gone Fishing”

“Gone Fishing” marks Ireland’s Róisín Murphy’s return to the music stage after a seven year hiatus. The time off hasn’t silenced her ambitions, with “Fishing” among the year’s coolest, most assured releases. The song recalls Jai Paul’s DIY, blurred soundscapes and Neneh Cherry’s confident, unobtrusive vocal stylings. In other words, “Gone Fishing” is a synthesis of the various strands of electronica that have arisen in the years since her Overpowered release. Now that she’s back, Murphy is ready to show us her big catch.
