If we could choose our parents, she would be the daughter of Mark E Smith, the late irascible vocalist of The Fall, and Patti Smith, the figurehead of a New York scene in perpetual creativity. A literature buff (Joan Didion and Albert Camus are among her favorite authors), the Limerick native makes the words she sings slam on a dense and uncompromising rock, where tensions and lulls follow one another in always passionate exchanges. Accompanied on stage by Julian Hanson (guitar) and Oscar Robertson (drums), she delivers each time live gigs as if there would be no tomorrow.
