First Impressions: Roisin Zings About In 'Momma's Place'

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

Wowie! 2010 has officially begun musically for me and it all rests in the Roisin Murphy's fresh out of the oven single, "Momma's Place". The title might ring some bells as it was announced last year that this was to be one of Roisin's new musical creations, and now to usher into the new year we finally get to hear the finalized version. And what a pinball zig-zag of a musical trip we are taken on. You might need your seatbelt for this as this song drives fast. "Momma's Place" surges with influences that feel like dance groups of yesteryear just exploded all over the place. It's a masterful colliding of early 90's club dance (think Snap! and La Bouche) and late 80's synth mahem (think Company B and Expose) and its just perfect. Not to mention the striking lyrics and the way Roisin's eerie gravely soulful tone just wraps itself along with the spitfire groove. Just love this to bits. "Momma's Place", the single, will be officially released come January 18th. Listen after the cut for the perfect slice of pop funk, served hot n' fresh.
