Listen to a track from the RTÉ 2FM Rising pick for 2020 above...

The songs may often reflect perilous times yet in so doing, KP takes us out of ourselves and into the most rarefied state. On a song like Human, the listener is being willed to be close, to rediscover that most beautiful denominator. "Times are troubling," and while "…there's an acknowledgement of that pain, somehow hope tries to rouse you."
