We caught wind of the Derry-based 'Grumpy Electro Pop' talent ROE at the start of last year via her breakthrough single Wasted.Patient.Thinking. and were gripped by her natural affinity for songwriting. She's yet to reach her twenties and she's already got quite the set of accolades under her belt, including performing at Glastonbury, winning the ‘Oh Yeah Contender Award’ for best emerging act at the 2018 Northern Ireland Music Prize and opening for Snow Patrol for their arena tour, and that's just naming a few.
She recently shared her new single Down Days, an anthemic return for this promising young talent. Best explained by ROE herself, she shares:
“I was having a really bad day. I felt like I couldn’t talk to anyone without annoying them, and I was angry and frustrated at myself. I felt like my brain was about to explode, with no idea how to handle it. That night I came home and started to write this song as a way of trying to make myself feel better. It’s okay not to feel okay. At a time when it can feel that we’re surrounded by negativity and constant social pressure, it’s important to remember that no matter how shitty you feel, you are not alone.”
