Poppongene — the solo project of Melbourne singer-songwriter Sophie Treloar — has announced her upcoming debut EP, ‘Futures Unsure’, set for release on July 3.
Alongside the EP announcement, Treloar also shared a new music video for single ‘Eternally Alone’, which was released in August last year.
Watch the video for ‘Eternally Alone’ below:
“‘Eternally Alone’ is about not settling for something that doesn’t work for you, and additionally, the comical aspect of the alone-ness that can run parallel to this way of being,” said Treloar of the video. “The video is a humorous depiction of the pure chaos faced when seeking a romantic human connection.”
The single was created in collaboration with producer Tim Harvey (Emma Louise, Real Feelings, Jade Imagine). “It’s a humorous pop song about wanting warm connection without warped compromise,” said Treloar of the track.
“It’s me daydreaming about a lovely shimmering romance that I don’t have time for. Less morbid than the title suggests, much more about poking fun at my priorities.”
