After 10 Years, Róisín Murphy Returns To Australia This December

Finally after 10 years, Irish singer-songwriter Róisín Murphy is returning to Australia with two headline shows this December. She will first be delighting fans at Melbourne's The Forum before entertaining audiences at Sydney's Enmore Theatre.

As the frontwoman and one half of UK-based, alternative dance-pop duo Moloko, Murphy celebrated a successful career throughout the 90s with producer Mark Brydon and their unique electronic partnership. Across their four studio albums, the duo had a number of hit singles including 'Sing It Back', 'The Time Is Now', 'Pure Pleasure Seeker' and 'Indigo'. Thanks to their sassy, eccentric and unconventional brand of electronic music, the band became known as one of the most iconic dance acts of the era.

Following the disbandment of Moloko in 2002, Murphy launched her solo career. Her four solo studio albums—'Ruby Blue', 'Overpowered', 'Hairless Toys' and 'Take Her Up To Monto'—earned her widespread critical acclaim including nominations for the Mercury Music Prize and Ireland's Choice Music Prize. She has also released a host of hit singles including 'Overpowered', 'Ramalama (Bang Bang)', 'Dear Miami' and 'You Know Me Better'. She has also collaborated with a number of musical influences like Matthew Herbert, Maurice Fulton and DJ Koze.

Transcending the barriers of genre by merging classic pop hooks, electronic, house and disco, Murphy continues to provide fans with captivating tracks including recent one-off single 'Incapable' (out now through Skint Records). Produced by long-time collaborator DJ Parrot aka Crooked Man, the new single is a shimmering, shuffling, club ready house track that has received universal acclaim.

"It glides on for more than eight minutes, disco riffs tracing delicate circles in the air as the synths rise higher and higher. Like the best dance music, it's an invitation to get lost." - Pitchfork Best New Track

"Deep house meets diva house in Murphy's eight-minute existential rapture about whether you need to have lost love to appreciate it." - The Guardian

"'Incapable' becomes something like a dance-floor meditation, a transportive world of swirling synths and pulsing four-to-the-floor beats. It's the perfect song to make for this summer's unexpected club hit." - Esquire
