Listen: ROE - Playground Fights



Helming from Derry, Ireland is 18-year-old Roisin Donald also known as, ROE who returns this week with her new single, Playground Fights.

Described on her Soundcloud as an "18 year old grumpy multi-instrumentalist," Playground  Fights starts with a quiet harmony that's reminiscent of a Daughter track but by the middle-eight hits hard as the track climaxes with the singer singing about buckling under the pressure of the responsibility that comes with adulthood.

 “Playground Fights is about growing up and people starting to take things way too seriously. I had this image of someone having a fight with the more sensible, grown-up version of themselves when I was writing it and it's all about the frustration of getting older and having to deal with that eventual point of responsibility," says ROE in a press release. 

The rising singer/songwriter has been making strong groundwork having already performed at The Great Escape festival and on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury earlier this year and is currently on a UK and Ireland tour.
