Despite her youth, 2017 has been an exciting year for the 18 year old artist. Kicking off with the release of ‘Fake ur Death’; featured on Tom Robinson’s weekly mixtape on BBC Radio 6, selected as ‘Track of the Day’ by BBC Across the Line (calling it “Emotive, engaging and just a little dangerous”, as well as being lauded by Jim Carroll of the Irish Times as a “talent on the rise”.
With performances at Output (Belfast) and The Great Escape music showcase (Brighton) already under her belt, ROE has been moving from strength to strength with increasing momentum. Selected as one of 21 acts from around the UK (the only Northern Irish artist) to perform on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury, the future looks incredibly bright for ROE.
‘You Call it Art’ is out now on Fictive Kin Records and is available worldwide via all major digital retailers and physically on her label’s e-store.
«A 4 piece alternative indie sounding band from Belfast, Dandelion Tea is Jordie Sunshine, Mary Anne Farenden and Scott Anderson
Across the Line:
“Attractive freak-folk with jazzy chord progressions and lyrics that may not make instant sense. If you have a sweet spot for Kurt Vile then these artful meanderings may be your new favourite infusion.”
»Unlike anything I’ve heard before, alt-pop doesn’t even fully describe the sound that this band produce. Almost restorative in its tone, this is an interesting tune that reminds me of early dew-soaked mornings and makes me feel a bit like I’m floating outside of my body (in a good way). If this is just the opener, then Dandelion Tea are definitely another NI band to look out for!"
«Musically the band can be a little hard to pin down, with their live set incorporating a mix of vocals, an Otis Redding cover and a first performance of ‘The Crystal Dawn’. The track itself is a genuinely delightful piece of indie-pop, moving along at its own pace to a lush blend of acoustic guitars, synths, strings and xylophone. The whole track is one heady, relaxing mix penned by guitarist Jordie Sunshine, and produced at Belfast’s Start Together studios.»
