In episode #79 of The XS Noize Podcast, Mark Millar catches up with Derry native Bridie Monds-Watson, aka SOAK, to talk about their third album, If I Never Know You Like This Again.
SOAK’s Bridie Monds-Watson (they/them) has incessantly documented their life in photos and video from a young age. It makes perfect sense then that If I Never Know You Like This Again is made up of what Bridie calls “song memories”. Having written much of the new album during the pandemic, when time felt at its slowest, Bridie’s obsessive need to document each chapter of their life made a marvel of the mundane.
In this interview, Bridie talks to me about their third album, If I Never Know You Like This Again, songwriting, musical influences, etc. Listen to episode #79 of The XS Noize Podcast with Bridie Monds-Watson, aka SOAK – BELOW:
