Somebody's Child | Manchester, Deaf Institute

20-something is the ambitious debut EP from the Irish newcomer Somebody’s Child. Its release follows the success of its two singles “Hold Me Like You Wanna” and “We Could Start A War”, which have both been featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, plus editorial playlists The Indie List, Transistor, alt-pop and more.

Needless to say, the influx of listenership reflects this with 90k monthly listeners, and impressive radio features such as BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunders’ Next Wave Artist), Radio X, RTÉ Radio 1 (Recommends), RTÉ 2FM, Today FM, and Amazing Radio’s A-list, amongst others.

20-something is in equal parts refined and expansive, being the most powerful and representative artistic statement of his work so far. Topics range from anger and disillusionment with the powers that be, to a nostalgic love song about friendship. Themes of personal growth permeate throughout, with a DIY attitude being evident in its overall sound and feel.

These songs were written in a pre-pandemic environment, but the seismic changes in the world since their inception has given new and deeper meanings to their subject matter, making the songs even more important to the artist and his band.

Lead singer and band leader Cian has said: “20-something is the first real taste of who I want to be as an artist and as a songwriter. Everything before this has just been to test the waters, but for the first time since this started it feels like this is what I’m really about.”
