Bridie Monds-Watson (aka Soak) is a teenage singer-songwriter from Derry, Northern Ireland. The young performer has been writing and playing for the past several years, effectively documenting the woes and sorrows of adjusting to adulthood. In Before We Forgot to Dream, her debut album, Monds-Watson's vocal style fuses her feminine elegance with an anxious alienation that transcends the issues of a mere teenager. Whether it's "B a Nobody," which plays like the soundtrack for any typical teen talking on the phone about isolation and displacement, or "Blud," the heart-shattering truthful recognition of the complexities of her parent's divorce, these songs maintain a sense of stakes and urgency that is hard to brush off. Before We Forgot To Dream isn't just the penned doom and gloom of an angst ridden teen. "Sea Creature" has a catchy playfulness that is fresh in it's pop simplicity and "Garden" jangles through with the distinct Soak voice flying just above the underlying sadness. Hers is a unique voice expressing every way she knows how, not to mention every way she is learning.
