Lindsay Munroe has shared new single “Hornets”. This is her second release on Common Language, following on from “Weekend Love” released earlier in the year.
Munroe continues to be as inventive in her songwriting as she is enticing to listen to. Combining indie-rock tropes with emotional outbursts that swell into a mix of Kate Bush’s flowing melodies and Lucy Dacus’ grungy-folk ballads. It’s an anthem for the broken as she talks to girls with problematic exes and reassures them that it will work out in the end. A hero for the heartbroken.
Speaking on the new single Munroe commented:
“Hornets’ is a message of solidarity to them saying ‘even if this plays out terribly, you’re not only going to be ok, you’re going to be better off’.
“Through the ups and downs of romantic relationships my biggest lesson has been the sustaining power of female relationships and the solidarity that comes with them. There’s anger and outrage in this song, but it’s also a love letter to the hours spent comforting and building one another up, my public pep talk that reflects all the private pep talks I’ve received and given.”
