CMAT

Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson aka CMAT (an abbreviation she used on message boards when she was a teenager) is an alternative pop star from Dublin. She writes humorous songs about serious topics: her sharp words tell tales about fast food shop breakdowns and kitchen sink dramas, needling former lovers while mainlining Diet Coke, and specific childhood disappointments. She is inspired by a.o. Dolly Parton, RuPaul’s Drag Race, music television from the 1970s and 1980s, celebrity culture and Dublin’s drag scene. She lives with her grandparents and is currently recovering from an AliExpress addiction.
