Daily Dose: Sorcha Richardson, “Don’t Talk About It”

Daily Dose is your daily source for the song you absolutely, positively need to hear every day. Curated by the Paste Music Team.

Dublin-born Sorcha Richardson has just released a lyric video for “Don’t Talk About It,” the first single off her forthcoming debut, First Prize Bravery, due out this fall.

The catchy, reverb-y bedroom-pop track is a great way to start off a sun-drenched summer—the echoing rhythms, in tandem with Richardson’s insightful vocals, runneth over with nostalgia and style. It’s like embarking on the start of an annual beach trip with your closest friends.

The lyrics and accompanying video, however, paint a different picture: “And you’re too scared to tell me how you really feel right now / We’re gonna die of thirst if we’re this scared to drown,” Richardson sings through an artificial smile.

“It’s a song about avoiding conflict and trying to keep the peace, no matter how much you end up sacrificing in order to do so,” says Richardson in a statement. “This is a song about what you end up losing when you smile and hold your tongue, but also what an achievement it is when you do learn to confront a situation that scares you???????.”

If this single is any indication of what the Ireland talent’s debut will ultimately sound like, we’re surely looking forward to the release of First Prize Bravery this fall.
