Roisín El Cherif – Kerosene
What you may need to know…
01. Dublin-based Galwegian Roisín El Cherif comes to the singer-songwriter fray from a multimedia background, including assistant director work on Brooklyn, Vikings, and others.
02. Her experience informs the video to single Kerosene, which she wrote, co-produced and directed with FailSafe Films.
03. The tune itself is a proposition seemingly made for bigger stages, which gives precedence to El Cherif’s voice, at once plaintive and possessed of certain presence.
04. Roisín is playing at King Kong Club in Dubland on April 5 and has a few live session vids upcoming via The OB Blog’s OBSessions series. Stay tuned to her various social media for more.
Verdict: Big, sweeping pop with an ambitious visual identity to match. Much here to love for fans of the singer-songwriter oeuvre.
Awful song, awful clip and awfully contrived and affected. In a word….
Good man Digs. Positive contribution as always.
You won’t be Roisín out to get tickets for her gig then Digs?
Bordering on ridiculable art speak
Bordering on ridiculable critic speak
not my cup of tea, kinda dated but seen/heard worse
Can you drop the ‘Dubland’ thing. It’s not funny.
I much prefer the
and the singer/novel writer oeuvre.
If she wasn’t pulling on the hem of her jumper, it wouldn’t be ‘falling’ off her shoulder
Really enjoyed that, an original sound and an enchanting video. Keep up the good work.
Wow, very creative song and very authentic. It really is music to my ears compared to so much of the rubbish you hear nowadays. Looking forward to hearing more from this girl.
