Between Spoken-Word and Post-Punk: Sinead O’Brien Unleashes “Kid Stuff”
The UK-based Sinead O’Brien is a creative all-round talent. Coming from a design background, the artist found new ways of expressing herself through spoken-word style songwriting. Kid Stuff follows the debut EP Drowning in Blessings and is equally quirky. Between literary influences and a boundary-bending post-punk attitude, the single is a small cosmos of condensed artistic vision. The artist recounts twangy verses, their edges and corners not quite fitting onto the steely instrumentation but in that discrepancy lies the unique vibe of her output. Kid Stuff fits right into the UK’s rising spoken-word scene. Sinead O’Brien might be a new name on the block but one that leaves a lingering impression.
