Atenţionare de călătorie transmisă de MAE: Este COD ROŞU de ploi şi furtuni în Italia
The electropop singer and former Moloko frontwoman is answering your questions now – post yours in the comments below
Mark Fergusson asks:
Do your kids like what you do? Are they aware of a mummy’s double life? What songs do they like the best? Keep on!
Interesting you use the phrase "double life" as that is how I feel at the moment. Over the summer, artists go out at the weekends to festivals and during the week we are at home. So yes, it feels very much like a double life right now.
My kids saw me perform for the first time a few weeks ago, when I sang at a rave for young children – a kiddie rave. But they have never seen my full show. Perhaps they'll come to one of the more sedate, middle-class festivals (of which there are now many).
One of the things I absolutely love about your music is your ability to move me through the beat and melody but make me think through the lyrics.
What inspires you to write or what things do you find you mostly write about?
I'm not sure I mostly write about things. I suppose I'm drawn to the senses – I very much will use any method at my disposal in order to write. Sometimes I collect ideas in journals, things people say, things that come to me in my sleep, etc. Sometimes I record ideas into my phone.
I also make lots of scrapbooks with cuttings from newspapers and magazines. Sometimes I can be inspired by a whole article, other times just one word or a phrase. I've written songs about films I've just watched, I've written about how I feel personally and I've written about imagined stories and imagined characters.
Do you feel a sense of entitlement in music fans, in terms of them demanding that the artist produce exactly what they want and expect?
… Well. I do tell my fans to expect the unexpected from me at every opportunity, and many of them are very understanding of this tendency of mine. You do get the occasional "why doesn't she make straight dance-pop music?" but I do that as well!
I think I'm lucky with my fanbase. I can't believe so many of them have waited for so long for an album from me. If someone expects me to conform to anything, then they're not really my fan at all.
Pepe Llinaz asks:
Out of all the songs you’ve written, which are you the most proud of?
I write different kinds of songs: sometimes I set my goal at making people dance. For songs like Jealousy and Simulation I come from a purist point of view, and it requires immense discipline for me to write like that, as I can have a tendency to over-intellectualise.
But when I do achieve this purity, it makes me very proud. On the other hand, I'm very proud of the songs on Hairless Toys as I had to follow some pretty complex song structures and write in a way that was very poetic. And so, for different reasons, I'm proud of that side of what I do, too.
What kind of collaborations have you ever refused ?
It's well-known that I didn't put a certain song on my last record Overpowered. It was a decent song called Off & On, written with Cathy Dennis and Calvin Harris.
On paper, this should have been pure pop gold but in the end, it didn't quite come up to standard.
Hi, I'm here at the Guardian, and I will endeavour to answer your questions truthfully.
So let’s get cracking.
Róisín Murphy made her entrance on to the pop stage in 1999, fronting the group Moloko, breaking into the charts with a sunkissed house remix of their track Sing It Back.
She later went solo, co-producing her 2005 debut album Ruby Blue with experimental musician Matthew Herbert, and following it with the dark electropop of 2007’s Overpowered.Continue reading...
