Having grown immensely since her inclusion on the BBC Sound poll at the beginning of the year, 19-year-old singer-songwriter SOAK has become one of the most talked about names in British music. Her ability to convey genuine emotion and passionate songwriting has struck a chord with the music-following masses and now looks to cement her growing legacy with the release of her debut album 'Before We Forgot How To Dream'.
While her unfamiliar name has lead people to comparing her to Laura Marling and early Adele, it is clear from this release that she is looking to cut her own path in the industry by creating a record with heart and soul at its core. 'Before We Forgot How To Dream' is one of those albums that once you like the first song, the rest just gets better and better. I slowly unfurls itself into this rich and uplifting collection of beautifully-written tracks, that seem to draw you ever closer to her incredibly tranquil voice.
She may still be young but shows a competence of a far more experienced individual. Presenting herself with wisdom and determination, SOAK is certainly one of the stand out introductions of this year and we hope to see a lot more of her in the future.
