Review: SOAK (BBC Radio 6 Music Stage)

SOAK is one of those artists in between full on indie-pop stardom and little-known rocker, but she seems comfortable where she is.

The 17 year old opened the BBC Radio 6 Music stage at Latitude Festival with hurds of teens waiting outside for the doors to open before they burst through, running to get as close as possible. If anybody was in doubt why they were standing there, the doubt was gone by the end of the set - as everybody left the tent once SOAK had exited the stage.

Standing slightly awkwardly on stage, the 17 year old singer-songwriter (whose real name is Bridie Monds-Watson) performed a medly of her songs, including hit record 'Sea Creatures' and 'Reckless Behaviour' off of her latest album, 'Before We Forgot How to Dream'.

Perhaps the only mistake made during her set was the timing of her set - seeing a soulful, soothing artist such as SOAK performing at 12.15pm doesn't really feel right. Other than that, the crowd appreciated her work.

If her Latitude set proved anything (and as I'm sure her growing fan base would agree) - keep an eye out for SOAK.
