Molly Payton has announced a new mini-album, ‘Slack’.
Set for release on 1st October, it’ll coincide with an Oscar Lang support tour that same month, and is preceded by lead single ‘You Cut Me So Much Slack’ – a lovely slice of lo-fi grunge-pop.
“‘You Cut Me So Much Slack’ is a song I wrote initially for my EP Porcupine, but decided just before it came out that it fit better in this project,” Molly explains. “In Porcupine when I wrote about friendships and relationships I was placing a lot of blame on other people, whereas my coming project Slack is more self-reflective and centres around taking responsibility for your own faults in order to grow. My anxiety used to make it almost impossible to communicate and express my feelings to someone, and when I tried it would never come out the way I wanted it to. That’s what this song is driven by, that frustration and desperation of wanting someone but not being able to tell them.”
