At 18 years old, SOAK has already been compared with the likes of Laura Marling and Beach House. Derry based Bridie Monds-Watson has been a rising star in her hometown of Derry since the age of 14, when a chance uploading of the ‘Sea Creatures’ demo to the BBC Introducing playlist saw A&R board the next flight over and park up outside the Monds-Watson’s household. 

Things moved forward last year, when Bridie teamed up with CHVRCHES for their launch of a singles label, toured with George Ezra and Tegan & Sara, before signing a deal with Rough Trade the same summer most of her friends got their A-Level results. Soak was Named a One To Watch for 2015 via the likes of iTunes, Spotify and the BBC Sound Poll.
