As 2013 came to an end, the Single "Timescapes" saw an inclusion in BBC Radio's Tom Robinson's best songs of December! A Collaboration with Swedish Artist Robert Parker resulted in the Single "Not That Kind" being released in April 2014, gaining yet another top 5 position in the George Williams Show in Japan.
Femmepop's debut album 'From A Girl Who Never Sleeps' was written, recorded, produced and mixed by Femmepop.

It has received great reviews and BBC Radio Ulster featured ‘There is A Place’ as their track of the day on the renowned ATL Show. With Japan’s popular ‘What The Funday’ Show playing ‘Underground’ on continuous repeat it seems the EP is garnering wide appeal.

"We’ve been impressed with the careful build-up of Femmepop’s career strategy, gradually amassing the body of songs that culminated last month in the release of her debut album From A Girl Who Never Sleeps – produced by Margaret herself and mixed by Gavin Monaghan, no less. Every ambitious artist whose aim is to make a living from music has to tread a fine line between pop accessibility and artistic credibility...Margaret has achieved that ideal balance. We wish her well" Tom Robinson BBC Music 6 ".. happily put my weight behind this ....Fair amount of debate as to what track to play tonight, as I would of quite happily played a number of tracks (from the Album) on the show tonight....this is a choice from me" Rigsy 'Across The Line' BBC Radio Ulster "On the frontlines of the New Wave revolution is Irish songstress, Femmepop aka Margaret O'Sullivan. She is already making a name for herself in the synthpop community and when the songs are as good as this one, there's no doubt this is right where she should be." Pop, Rinse Repeat "Another Brilliant Song by Femmepop" Mike Rogers DJ Japan "Like it a Lot" Marc Riley BBC Music 6 "You could call it dream pop that sounds like a collaboration between Cocteau Twins,School Of Seven Bells, and Luke Vibert..."
