SOAK has revealed the details of her forthcoming second album ‘Grim Town’, plus the video for new single ‘Knock Me Off My Feet’, which you can view below.
The musiciani, aka Bridie Monds-Watson, says the new single is about the idea that “you can be the best person to yourself, and the worst person to yourself”.
‘Grim Town’ will be released via Rough Trade Records on April 26. It follows SOAK’s Mercury-nominated debut ‘Before We Forgot How To Dream’ from 2015.
She says the new record concerns “a dystopia that I’ve created in my brain: me on the inside, processed into a pretend location.
“The way I could wrap my head around a lot of what I was going through was to make it feel like something quite physical and real. Once I had the idea of the album being an actual location, exploring the dynamics of this town and what it would look or sound like felt like the right way to give my mental state a personality.”
