Introducing Somebody’s Child, a rising young Irish male singer-songwriter who has been making serious waves in the Irish music scene. His music has drawn comparisons to Arctic Monkeys and Foster the People, and it’s easy to see why, with his effortless combination of indie, alternative and pop.

Following the success of his debut single Make You Alright, which has received airplay on over 25 radio stations with total radio listener impacts in excess of 2 million, as well landing several Spotify editorial playlists, including ‘Hot New Bands’ and ‘A Breath of Fresh Eire’, and Track of the Day on Hot Press Magazine, Make You Alright draws an end to a project that began a little over a year ago.

Now, Somebody’s Child looks to cement himself with the unveiling of his new release Toes. Produced by Ross Dowling (James Vincent McMorrow, Talos, Bell X1), the track experiments with, and explores the different styles and elements of indie pop music. Both lyrically and melodically driven, Toes is a beautifully-arranged track that highlights Somebody’s Child’s talent for crafting songs that feel both intimate and vast, set against a blissful atmospheric soundscape.

Having honed his sound into a captivating alternative that fuses righteous lyrics with dazzling melodies, his latest material is raw and honest. Deeply poignant, Toes capitalises on his ability to engage smart songwriting with unexpected genres, taking cues from the likes of James Bay and Tom Walker.

Speaking of the track Toes, Somebody’s Child explains:

“The song is about being in a controlling relationship, knowing what needs to change, and finding the courage to stand up for oneself and going after what you really want despite what people may think or say about you.”
