Is Roisin Murphy finally going to have her solo breakout moment in 2015? We sure hope so. Roisin Murphy as a vocalist has been up there with Sia for us and just this week she’s released a new single “Gone Fishing.” Our love affair with Miss Murphy has been ongoing and in particular, her tracks with Hot Natured and Solomun have been standouts. “Gone Fishing” is a strong solo effort and we hope to hear more from Roisin very soon.
It’s great when two artists you love individually get together on a track and that’s exactly what’s happened with this Penguin Prison remix of Great Good Fine Ok.
