Sloan Peterson has dropped a new single today (October 20), the ironic yet enchanting ‘Nightmare’.
The new song – Peterson’s debut release with new label Warner Australia and taken from a forthcoming EP – is a lyrical adventure of navigation through a rocky relationship, inspired, according to a press release, by Peterson’s personal experience.
Peterson said that ‘Nightmare’ “is shining a light on the fact that perhaps my expectations in life could come across unrealistic at times, but on the other hand, does that really make me a nightmare or just a strong-minded woman who knows what she wants.
“It’s written in a playful relationship sense but questioning the construct of being deemed bossy or controlling rather than assertive or driven. I think it’s something a few people might relate too, whether it be a personal, social or professional circumstance.”
Merging stylistic nuances of 1960’s French rock with modern electronic pop, in the accompanying official music video we see Peterson attending a funeral, sarcastically mourning the loss of her romantic relationship.
