Feburary 2014 saw all eyes on Russia, with the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Written on Valentine's day and recorded and released within ten days, Russian Roulette was a reaction to events in Russia, Ireland and further afield. Inspired by Sochi, the Noble Call speech by Irish drag queen Panti Bliss and ABC's top hit TV show Nashville, the song gives voice to the thoughts that often trouble LGBT people trying to find tenderness in an uncaring world. All proceeds from sales of the single go to international LGBT charities Stonewall, IGLYO and BeLonGTo.
