Gretel Hänlyn has shared a new single ‘Wiggy’.
The single, which was inspired by The Smashing Pumpkins and Pixies, captures the ‘sloppy charisma’ of being a cat.
“I’ve always thought it must be so nice to be a cat, to get massages and compliments and have a nice tail, nothing to do. So that’s pretty much what this song is about,” Hänlyn explains. “I was inspired a lot by The Smashing Pumpkins / Pixies and their punchy, kinda lazy, not-over thought bangers and knew I wanted to capture that sloppy charisma in this song before I even started writing it about my cat. I wasn’t very far into writing (I’d literally just laid down the baritone guitar/bass line and was getting into the drum sounds) when my mum sent me a photo of Wiggy lying on a bed being adorable and it just fit perfectly to the laid back nature of the song that was forming so I went with it.”
