“I wish that I could be somebody else so I could feel like I’m perfect”
Northern Ireland Music Prize award winner and Momentum fund awardee changes gears with new single, “Look who’s on TV”
After spending much of 2019 on the road supporting the likes of Snow Patrol, Kodaline and Robbie Williams, as well as a slew of festivals appearances including SXSW, Reeperbahn and Body & Soul, 20-year-old ROE releases her new single “Look who’s on TV.” On 7th February.
Marking an evolution in sound for ROE, ”Look who’s on TV.” leaves behind the shiny electro-pop stylings of ‘Girls’, opting instead for something more weighty and dark, whilst still maintaining her thought provoking, relatable and fearless lyrical style.
“‘Look who’s on TV.’ is a song about facing the reality of who you really are. It can be difficult to own up to our flaws and have the ability to say ‘I’m alright with this.’ So I wrote this song about my own inner argument and the constant question of “am I good enough?” that‘s been running around my head.”
ROE begins the year with her first ever headline tour in the UK, a headline show in the legendary Whelans, Dublin on February 28th 2020 (the follow up to her sold out show in the same venue last year) and her debut festival headline slot at NXTGN in Middlesbrough in March.
