Ireland's Somebody's Child Returns With New Single 'Broken Record'

Ireland’s Somebody’s Child, otherwise known as Cian Godfrey, launched with a slew of great indie-pop singles in 2018-2019, and released his 20-Something EP during the 2020 lockdown that included hit singles 'Hold Me Like You Wanna’ (1.5 mil streams) and 'We Could Start a War’ (3.2 mil streams), which gained BBC Radio 1 and Radio X attention. 

Never one to rest on his laurels, two EPs followed in quick succession (2021’s Hope, Amongst Other Things and Staying Sane), and when he was finally able to perform his first headline tour of the UK and Ireland in late 2021, the shows witnessed large crowds of enthusiastic fans and an atmosphere of celebration.

Today he shares new single 'Broken Record' and announces he’s signed to cult indie label Frenchkiss Records, as well as a mammoth UK/IRE/EU tour early next year that goes on sale Friday at 10am - tickets available here.

Syd Butler, Founder and President of Frenchkiss Records says of the signing, 'Frenchkiss is thrilled to be able to work with Somebody’s Child. I love their ability to layer both mature songwriting with vulnerability. This kind of authenticity is something that I find is lacking in much of today’s music. Somebody’s Child provides this exact element that is still needed, both in recording and playing live. They are nothing short of amazing.'
