'I've always been attracted to weirdos," confesses Wicklow-born singer Róisín Murphy, who has just released her third studio album Hairless Toys. "When I was younger, I hung out with a bunch of boys who wore black and listened to bands like The Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. I connected with this because, from the very beginning, I felt like an outcast myself."

The beginning of Murphy's own journey to pop stardom started in Arklow and brought her to Sheffield. At a party around the mid '90s, she met a producer who'd worked with Boy George called Mark Brydon.
