Lindsay Munroe releases Softest Edge EP

Lindsay Munroe has today released Softest Edge, her new EP alongside the title track “Softest Edge” as a single. The new EP follows on from previously released singles “Hornets” and “Weekend Love“.

The EP formed out of the fallout of two intertwined relationships within Munroes life, one with the conservative Christian church and the other with a long-term partner. Throughout the EP she explores how breaking away from both of those factors allowed Munroe to become the person she is today. Soundtracked by sweeping synthesisers on “Softest Edge” and intimate lo-fi guitars on “Andrew” she goes through to motions of love and longing, all whilst keeping a finesse of serenity over the whole project. She explodes with confidence and conviction and feels as though she’s truly come into here own not only with her songwriting but her sound as an artist.

Speaking about the title track, Munroe said:

“When two formative relationships like this come to an end, it does change your outlook. This song was me beginning to reach the other side of that and realising that I had a new uncompromising strength that I didn’t have before”.

Lindsay Munroe has today announced Softest Edge, her second EP set to be released on November 9th. Pre-order here. She has also shared “Parallel“, her most pop-sounding outing to date and we’re here for it. Its infectious groove and pumping synthesisers form the perfect backing for Munroe’s outburst of joy as she realises the improvement in her quality of life. The new single is the latest from her EP which follows on from “Hornets” and “Weekend Love” released earlier in the year.

Speaking about the new single, Munroe said:

“For a long time I’ve wanted to write a love song for my best friend. I wrote it last summer when she was still working on the Covid intensive care unit and having an absolutely awful time. Writing a song felt like a bit of a silly thing to do but it’s what I could do.

“I’ve always thought that it’s mad that our culture places so much value on romantic couplings. There’s no doubt in my mind that when I’m an old woman looking back on the big love stories of my life it will be my friends who fill my mind.”

A press release said about the new EP:

Whilst Munroe’s debut EP, Our Heaviness, centred on her divorce from a conservative church, its follow-up finds her thriving in her newfound independence, taking control of her sexuality and defining her own boundaries. It’s given rise to the fiercely independent, and cheeky songwriter that stands in front of us today.

Lindsay Munroe shares new single “Hornets”

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.”

Lindsay Munroe shares new single “Weekend Love”

Lindsay Munroe has today shared new single “Weekend Love”, her second single of the year following on from “Need A Ride”. She also released her debut EP Our Heaviness last year that explored her departute from a conservatie Christian church.

Following in a similar vein of thought, “Weekend Love” is an anthem to freedom. Through brash guitars and a driving beat, Munroe invokes the same type of slacker-rock sensibilities as Marika Hackman. It’s immediately captivating with it’s gliding melody and Munroe’s free-flowing storytelling and only keeps drawing you back in.

Speaking of the song, Lindsay said: “’Weekend Love’ reflects on the inherent humour of two quite earnest people trying to embark on a casual relationship. It’s a fun song reflecting a fun time – two people living in different cities, seeing each other for a few days at a time and, for me at least, providing a bit of an escape from weekday life.”
