SAY HELLO TO ERIN K’S EXQUISITE, ‘GOODBYE SONG’
FOLLOWING her recent single ‘Keep Her,’ ERIN K is further teasing her forthcoming new album with second single, ‘Goodbye Song.’
‘Goodbye Song’ eschews genre categorization as its subtle melancholic grooves build and weave their way under the skin. Dealing with accepting and understanding a break-up, the lyrics conjure up memories of places and times spent together with a partner.
To accompany the release, a video filmed on Erin’s recent tour of Italy is also available, a tour which saw her perform twenty dates across the country with her long-time band.
Speaking about the video and the story behind the song, Erin said, “This song follows a single evening in which the narrator is reunited with a previous lover, questioning her feelings, and eventually arriving to the conclusion they cannot continue with any romantic involvement.”
“It was an autobiographical and cathartic piece of writing for me. The structure of the song is a little unusual in that it lacks a chorus, but very true to my early style, with the vocal layers behind the verses. I wanted to song to have a continuous flow, rather than circle back to a question or definitive thought.
“I’m really happy with how the recording came out, especially with the added organ. We spent our entire recent tour in Italy performing a ridiculous dance to this song. I think my bandmates wanted to kill me by the end of it! I used the collected footage in the music video accompaniment, both light and strange, standing in contrast to the subject matter.”
Erin’s narrative-driven songs are as forthright and personal as they are engaging, and the candid nature of her often fearlessly self-deprecating lyrics make repeated listens of the timeless songs rewarding.
With a growing audience of over three million streams on Spotify, following the fruitful collaboration on 2019s ‘I Need Sound’, the American-born London-resident musician has continued her work with co-producer Kristofer Harris (Belle & Sebastian, Ghostpoet) and recorded new album ‘Sink to Swim’ at his Squarehead Studios in Kent.
Erin K’s new album ‘Sink to Swim’ will be released on vinyl LP, CD and digital on 30th June 2023, following a launch show at London’s, ‘Slaughtered Lamb’ on 28th June.
