SOAK announces new album ‘If I Never Know You Like This Again’

Words: Dylan Murphy

The announcement comes alongside a new single ‘last july’ and a May headliner in Whelan’s.

With the removal of most of the restrictions in Ireland, gig season is in full swing again. Today, Derry’s SOAK has revealed they will play Whelan’s on 26 May 2022.

The news lands alongside the release of ‘last july’, the first single from their forthcoming third album If I Never Know You Like This Again. The video for the track was shot by Ellius Grace stars Bridie and their partner. If I Never… is the follow-up to 2019’s Grim Town and SOAK’s Choice Music Prize-winning 2015 debut album Before We Forgot How to Dream.

If I Never Know You Like This Again is made up of what Bridie calls “song-memories”. Having written much of the new album during the pandemic, when time felt at its slowest, Bridie’s obsessive need to document each chapter of their life made a marvel of the mundane. Speaking on the album SOAK said, “I hate the idea of getting older and forgetting, or having a family and not being able to perfectly explain a memory or a feeling. I always want to remember exactly how I felt at a certain moment”.
