Playlist 12.11.12

Stuart Bailie | 18:25 UK time, Tuesday, 13 November 2012

Rosie Carney is 15, comes from Donegal and her voice is astounding. It's got the power of early Joni Mitchell, singing purely out of a lonesome place. On a song like 'What Have You Been Looking For' she sounds preternaturally old, battered by tough experience but still questing. On 'I Won't Let You Fall' she has some of that Laura Marling bite, utterly assured with the challenge of getting the tune and the intensity out.

The journalist in me wants to talk about the triumvirate of Soak, Katharine Philippa and Rosie Carney and the emergence of some of the greatest Irish talent ever. The music fan in me is merely delighted.
