Cover The HITS #4: ROE



Hey guys!

Today marks the halfway point of our Cover The HITS series.
We are sooo in awe with all the covers we've shared with you so far - and we are loving the positive feedback we've been receiving.

It sounds pretty corny, but we've fallen in love with this series and might be turning it into a regular.
(wink, wink)

Just to make sure you know what Cover The HITS is about, let us explain:
We love cover versions, so here we are - showcasing eight exclusive covers throughout the month of October.

You'll find a new video each Wednesday and Saturday, performed by artists we truly believe in.

To help us make this series a big (and maybe recurring) feature, we'd love for you to share it with your friends by using the hashtag #CoverTheHITS on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.


Today we get to share an amazing performance by ROE with you.


ROE is the moniker of Roisin Donald, a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Derry, Northern Ireland.

She describes her sound as "Grumpy Electro Pop", we describe it as "genius".

But it's not just house in the sand who is extremely excited about ROE's sound, no.
She has already played the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury 2017, Output and The Great Escape.

Her debut track "Fake Ur Death" was featured on Tom Robinson's weekly mixtape on BBC Radio 6 and has received praise from the Irish Times.

ROE followed up with "Cheek, Boy" earlier this year and took our breath away with her latest single, "Playground Fights".


Needless to say, we are thrilled to share ROE's cover with you.
She performed an amazing laid back version of "Lights Out" by Royal Blood - you're gonna love this!!!
