2007 certainly has been a brilliant year for Roisin Murphy. Finally after a decade of being regarded as Mark Brydon’s other half in Moloko Roisin has finally made her stamp on the music scene. “Overpowered” which was released earlier in the year is probably the most interesting female solo album of 2007. The album is a real grower and certainly gets better after a few plays. The record is an eloquent mix of electro pop, disco and funk however lacks the bublegum cheesyness of most other dance albums, think Electribe 101 crossed with Madonna in her “Ray of Light” phase and you are on the right track.

I bumped into Roisin at the Gareth Pugh show at London Fashion Week where she talked about her love of theatrical and quirky outfits. Based on this I was expecting something fairly outlandish however she looked more like a well heeled Parisien rather than a fashionista. That said she looked fantatic and put on a first rate performance. If you get the chance I’d recommend that you check out her live performances which are as enjoyable as her recorded work.
