Album Review
Reviewed 2015-08-13 
Debut from 18-year-old Bridie Monds-Watson, better known as SOAK, an Irish singer-songwriter born in Derry, Northern Ireland. This record is incredible. Beyond beautiful vocals, haunting lyrics, super interesting instrumentation. Truly great.

Recommended Tracks: **2**, 3, 7, **8**, **11**

1. (1:06) "My Brain" - Ambient, cello
2. (4:50) B A Nobody - This may be my favorite, super pretty, great melody, great lyrics.
3. (2:47) Blud - Another gorgeous song. Love her voice, great falsetto, cool harmonies.
4. (4:00) Wait - Very pretty string and piano accompaniment. Dark song.
5. (3:12) Sea Creatures - Slightly more upbeat, electric base and wave sounds.
6. (0:58) "A Dream To Fly" - Ambient.
7. (4:00) 24 Windowed House - Vocals and acoustic guitar, great story.
8. (3:12) Garden - Fuller sound with more awesome harmonies and beautiful piano melody, upbeat strumming and drumming.
9. (3:27) Shuvels - Downtempo again, minimal more of the same.
10. (3:11) Hailstones Don't Hurt - Distant vocals, drum machine, keyboard.
11. (3:16) Reckless Behaviour - Midtempo strumming, feels more Best Coasty, builds half way through, great.
12. (1:04) "If Everyone Is Someone - No One Is Everyone"- Ambient.
13. (7:21) Oh Brother - Epic and distant and sad. Falls silent about 5 mins in and then there is a hidden track at the end.
