Roisin Murphy’s ascent can be framed as a classic, Alice in Wonderland story: curious, cool beyond her years teenager enters the warehouses, clubs, and gritty side streets of northern England, falls in with producer at a party, forms a band and snags a multi-album record deal, burns up the charts and wins award nominations, becomes a mainstay of the art world and receives obsessive attention for her unique fashion sense, tours the globe several times over, goes solo and further consolidates her status as an ever evolving, constantly surprising Proper Pop Star, and comes to represent the outsider spirit of an entire generation.
But that is not the quintessential Alice in Wonderland story, it is, rather, the singular exception. It is Murphy’s story, and one that could only ever belong to her. 'Róisín Machine' is the next chapter of that ever unfolding, always compelling tale - a seamlessly edited, 10 years in the making collection of tracks produced in collaboration with her Sheffield pal DJ Parrot, at once her most unabashedly dance-floor ready yet deeply autobiographical work to date.
‘Róisín Machine’ is out 25th September and available to pre-order.
