Sinewy Grunge-flecked Art Noise...
Born in New York and raised in the seaside Irish town of Bray, Singer-songwriter Ódú, better known to her friends as Sally Ó Dúnlaing, was always destined to be a curator of colourful pop.
“I’ve always been drawn to people who make balls out pop; people who have personality and something to say like Marina and The Diamonds, Tove Lo and Susanne Sundfør; credible artists who have made their mark by being vulnerable and telling their story without ever dulling their pop sheen.”
On her latest single ‘Feed You Lies’, Ódú’s opens up about self-sabotaging her career and turns it into a shimmering, indie-disco number, propelled by a bass line that Nile Rodgers would be proud of.
She said of ‘Feed You Lies’: “This was the first song I wrote for my EP. I was getting frustrated with myself because I was cock blocking my ambitions at every turn because I kept telling myself I was too old or not good enough. This song was me finally telling myself to ‘get the fuck over yourself and move forward’”.
Ódú is set to release debut EP “Conversations” with producers Elliot Marchant, James Darkin and Mick Heffernon at the helm. The five track collection is a kaleidoscopic journey through 80s synth pop to indie-disco and tropical pop, all lifted by Ódú’s luxe, and subtly jazz-inflected, vocals.
“It’s also a big celebration of the different sounds I love and it’s a chance to show how I can combine different influences and create music I’d like to hear in the world.”
