Artist: Róisín Murphy
When I think that I’m over you …
This song about an unbreakable kinetic connection is definitely one to check out. It’s got a slightly dark haunting feel to it and a thumping bass beat that keeps you moving. How many songs can reference oxytoxins and yet have it work? Probably not too many, but Overpowered does and the result can provide an almost-hypnotic “fuel” source. Even 2-3 years after it’s release, adding this adrenaline track to a running playlist still feels fresh.
Irish singer-songwriter Murphy was half of the electronic duo that brought us the 1999 number one dance hit Sing It Back. Her and then-boyfriend Mark Brydon released the song while still together as Moloko. She later achieved even greater success on her own—and her new collaboration with Dutch DJ Mason is a fresh and edgy track called called Boadicea. Though not yet officially released, it’s also worth checking out.
