Coming all the way from Derry, Northern Ireland are quartet Susie Blue. This pop rock outfit consist of Susan Donaghy, Caolan Moore, Tom Carlin and Shea Gallagher. This impeccable unsigned band have recently released their newest single Be A Lady and it’s a real corker. This succulent single sees Susie Blue stand up for equality which resulted in something rather powerful.
Here is what Susan Donaghy had to say about this sublime single “’Be A Lady’ is a song that I wanted to write to tell myself and anyone who wants to listen that it’s okay to be “different” and stereotypes about gender aren’t a thing anymore in 2017”.
This song is insanely catchy plus it oozed plenty of indie pop rock vibes at the same time. Susan’s vocals were sugary sweet and those lyrics packed a punch. The thrilling Be A Lady had been perfectly crafted and I for one cannot wait to see what the rest of 2017 holds for them.
Last year Susie Blue dropped the tantalising track People Like Us which radiated plenty of indie rock vibes. Donaghy’s vocal tones were silky smooth and those guitars resulted in something rather edgy. The anthem People Like Us was an addictive jam with lyrics which focused on intolerance and hatred in society, particularly in the form of homophobia “They don’t like People like us”. Actually those lyrics have tinges of sadness because everyone should be accepted no matter what race or gender they are.
Last year Susie Blue completed their first Irish headline tour year and this year they’ve supported the likes of The Strypes, Glen Hansard and SOAK. The band have also appeared at a number of festivals including Whelan’s One To Watch Festival, Output Festival, Swell Festival and the Maritime Festival.
