Sarah Mary Chadwick is on the cusp of releasing her forthcoming album, and now she’s dropped another cut from it with ‘Full Mood’.
‘Full Mood’ is the third single Chadwick has dropped from her new album ‘Me And Ennui Are Friends, Baby’, out on February 5 via Rice Is Nice Records. The song follows the release of previous singles ‘At Your Leisure’ and ‘Every Loser Needs A Mother’.
The song is incredibly intimate, with just Chadwick singing over a piano, and the accompanying music video, directed by Tristan Scott-Behrends, matches that intimacy.
Watch the ‘Full Mood’ music video below:
“‘Full Mood’ is about a Valentine’s Day date I went on,” said Chadwick of the song in a press statement. “The owner of the bar we were at tried to get us both to fuck her, but she wouldn’t let me be in charge so we didn’t.
“I remember afterwards we were walking down the road and it was streetlights and still at 3am and everything felt great and shining and I remember thinking that I wish my dad could’ve done this, got drunk and kicked around the city at night when it’s all sparkly, holding onto someone who lights you up, not been stuck in silent dark rural New Zealand, watching other people’s lives on TV, drinking half glasses of box wine while his frowning wife ironed.”
‘Me And Ennui Are Friends, Baby’ will mark the third album Chadwick has delivered in as many years, following on from 2020’s ‘Please Daddy’ and 2019’s ‘The Queen Who Stole The Sky’.
Chadwick will be celebrating the album’s launch with a residency at Fitzroy’s Avalon Bar throughout February and March, where she’ll play the album in full as well as other songs from her discography. In addition, each of the four shows will be streamed via Bandcamp Live.
