“Bedroom-pop was the genre my sisters liked to refer to my music as, not too sure if it’s for the sound or cool studio in my bedroom”
Singer, songwriter and producer FLUBLAH is a new up-coming artist exploring the independent music genre with her bedroom-pop bangers. Inspired by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Lana Del Rey and Clairo this soon to be rising artist is planning on taking over radio waves near you this summer.
She notes how fortunate she is to have had an interest in music from a young age, having taken piano and singing lessons in her home county of Laois. FLUBLAH is even known to have performed on the famous Portlaoise Dunamaise stage for musicals and drama performances. “I guess you could say I’ve always been drawn to the spotlight” adding a chuckle in at the end.
A current student studying to receive her BA in Voice in the University of Limerick, she plans to focus her summer off college on preforming and writing. “ I spend a lot of time in my bedroom playing my guitar or piano and humming along to my four chord wonders”.
I must say that her mention of “four chord wonders” dilutes the intricacy of her compelling yet fun style of writing. FLUBLAH’s lyrics are poetic and meaningful, they entice the reader to think of a time and compels them to be more hopeful for themselves. She inspires the youth in us to reappear again with her Debut Single I’m still Young.
Due to enter the world on the 15th of June this song is one to keep your ears open and waiting for. The single speaks on taking control of our lives again and taking back any of the youth we lost to lockdown. It’s about not giving up on the dreams we had before COVID and setting them free from our imagination into the reality we now live in. Speaking with FLUBLAH she seemed hopeful for the introduction of the arts back into our lives;
“Gigging has been a huge dream of mine and it was postponed by lockdown. However, with the announcement of festivals and shows to return in late September there is hope that if we can attend these gigs that were postponed the new lockdown artists will be putting on shows of their own very soon!”
The excitement is mutual FLUBLAH!
