FIZZ have shared a new single, ‘As Good As It Gets’.
The band – dodie, Orla Gartland, Greta Isaac and Martin Luke Brown – are currently gearing up for the release of their debut album ‘The Secret To Life’, due for release on 15th September via Decca Records.
“‘As Good As It Gets’ is the result of years of being told to smile, of being interrupted and cut across, patronising tones and having your space invaded – a cry for having to be grateful for the gift of absolutely nothing. This song serves as a unified call of disdain and our belief that we deserve more than we think, always,” they explain.
“As we were writing this song, it became clear that this song stemmed from the experience of womanhood and femininity and so Martin felt it was right to pull back from singing and give us the space we needed to fully realise the song.
“We felt unified in our experience when we sang this together, four women around a mic (including Soren Bryce who engineered the album) with Greta fronting. Singing this felt like opening a valve after years of built up pressure and tension; it was cathartic and healing.”
