Roisin Murphy: Artist You Should Know

Written by

Irish artist Roisin Murphy has been getting spins on KCRW for about a year, ramping up in the last few months in advance of her new album “Hairless Toys”.

She first came to music fans’ attention as one half of the electro-pop duo Moloko, but she has become an acclaimed solo artist in her own right.

According to KCRW Music Librarian Eric J Lawrence, this new release, her first in 8 years, aims high with an impressive palate of sounds, from gospel to house music.

You can hear the full album as part of our Album Preview series and sample a few tracks below, including a remix that’s been getting a lot of love.

She’ll be touring Europe throughout the rest of the year but hopefully she’ll make an LA appearance soon.
