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.

Tracklist:

  1. Softest Edge
  2. Andrew
  3. Need A Ride
  4. Parallel

Sunken release new single “Show Me Your Mind”

London-based 5 piece Sunken have released new single “Show Me Your Mind” and announced their signing to 7476 (Matt Maltese, Matilda Mann, Lizzie Reid).

There’s an underlying sinisterness to the bands new track that only gets darker as it progresses. With an almost disco-like groove the band create a soundscape that is both funky and uneasy at the same time. It’s only towards the final breakdown of crumbling synths and lead singer Poppy Billingham’s cries that you feel the true catharsis that the band evoke.

Speaking about the new track the band said:

“Show me your mind is about the subtleties of how someone presents themselves to you. It’s easy to know someone on a surface level basis but the more you get to know someone the more your perception of them changes. The subtleties could be anything from how they might change their persona based on who they’re around or being more expressive and opinionated with ease. Sometimes we can get to know someone and how they think about things, and it can either pull you closer to them or make you realise you don’t click”.
