Laoise will be going in an honest direction in her upcoming music, influenced by her decision to start therapy. "I felt like I was fighting my music", Laoise told Louder Than War. "So I’ve been in therapy for a year now. It’s a really, really cool way to look at my thoughts in a new way, and my songwriting keeps changing because of that.

"It’s really nice to see this new type of songwriting where people are writing very, very bluntly about their lives. I can feel that sense of our generation not being scared to talk about things in comparison to the older generation."

The electro-pop artist is hotly-tipped for success in 2021; last year, she was part of the Irish Women in Harmony collective, who claimed Ireland's best-selling vinyl single of 2020 with Dreams, which was also a Number 1 hit on the Official Irish Homegrown Chart.

Laoise's recent string of singles have been supported across the country by RTE 2FM, Hot Press and Today FM, with her polished, mainstream pop styling reminiscent of some of the biggest international names, helping her stand-out in Ireland's independent scene.
