Sorcha Richardson Unveils ‘Honey’ Video

Irish singer-songwriter Sorcha Richardson has been cultivating a cult fanbase for several years. Songs such as ‘Ruin Your Night’, ‘Petrol Station’ and ‘Can’t We Pretend’ are evocative vignettes of a moment in time which find the poetry in introspection, with a tangible nod to key influences such as Sharon Van Etten, Arcade Fire, Phoebe Bridgers and Julia Jacklin.

Exuding passion and tender beauty in equal measure, her narrative songwriting connects with people who have shared similar tangled emotions – as evidenced by 22 million streams at Spotify alone.

Richardson released the biggest artistic statement of her career with her debut album, ‘First Prize Bravery’ late last year. It’s a collection of lyrical snapshots of life as a twentysomething, accompanied by the desires, doubts and developments that the decade delivers.

It’s the hidden meaning in mundane moments,” she summarises. “Days that look like any other day and yet somehow you have this feeling that it’s one you’ll remember forever.”

Its opening track ‘Honey’ encapsulates that feeling, with love emerging from out of nowhere without making any promises for the future. 

The video for ‘Honey’ was released today and Sorcha had this to say about the process: “The video for ‘Honey’ was shot and directed by my friend Ross Andrew Stewart. We made it, kind of on a whim, on one of Ross’s last days in Dublin before he was going back to New York, some time before the current crisis kicked off, when you could still buy a piano on adverts for €50 and drag it through a field with your friends. That piano now lives at my rehearsal space, and is far more out of tune than when we picked it up that morning, with a couple souvenir blades of grass still stuck in the wheels.
