MCD Presents: Laoise
A world away from the usual Irish folk-acoustic and rock exports, LAOISE is Ireland’s newfound answer to pop. She records, produces and releases her music completely independently and totally commands her own brand of bold, glittering, gutsy electro-pop – paving the way for Irish-born pop music.

Originally from Galway in Ireland, 22-year old LAOISE (pronounced Lee-sha) writes dreamy, ambitious and frank pop songs about relationships and heartbreak, often with more introspective lyrics, juxtaposed with upbeat electro and synth production. Having performed a string of gigs and festivals over the summer – most recently Longitude Festival – ‘Seriously?’ has a mischievous and charismatic energy that ripples through a crowd and is a real fan favourite during her live shows.
Taking her cues from the silky production of acts like Tove Styrke, Troye Sivan and MO and incorporating elements of synth, indie and alternative – LAOISE’s music is deeply inspired by household names like Kate Bush and David Bowie, as well as the different musical personas of Taylor Swift.
Drawing from her combined influences, LAOISE thrives on being able to experiment with her music and the characters, concepts and emotions she’s able to portray with each release. She has created her own brand of glittering yet gritty electro-pop that she presents to us today.
