Cornflake Girl

Unless you’ve been avoiding the spaghetti string strewn high street and every click bait listicle going you might not be aware that the 1990s are back. Which means comeback concerts, #normcore, Courtney Love all over Twitter, the continued dissection of the Spice Girls? influence on feminism, Take That for the first dance at weddings, and Friends reruns that no longer annoy us. (We’re blaming the disappointing series finale of How I Met Your Mother for that last trend.)

However the beloved songwriter and performer Tori Amos never really went out of style and is still touring and creating art that attracts nothing but critical plaudits, a glut of Grammy awards and fangirls so devoted some people have written doctorates on them. The Cornfalke Girl singer was one of the leading voices of the burgeoning 1990s alternative rock scene and carved out a can-play-two-pianos-at-the-same niche with nothing but lyrical aplomb.

Her career since her 1992 debut with the album Little Earthquakes has marked her out as a champion of diverse choices. Since then she’s sold 12 million albums worldwide and last year she wrote music for an award-winning fairytale musical, The Light Princess, which ran until earlier this year in London. Her 14th album, Unrepentant Geraldines, comes after a few years of experimenting with classical, orchestral and seasonal musical projects and the tour has kicked off in Ireland this week with shows in Dublin’s Olympia. Recorded in her husband’s studio in Cornwall, we’re pretty certain?Geraldines will continue this singer’s flawless segue and reconfirm our love for the perennial artiste.

So either try and get some last minute tickets for tonight here or fall into a Youtube vortex of Tori at her empowered, confessional and comfortable self. Unrepentant Geraldines is released next week.
