Molly Payton has announced her new EP, ‘Porcupine’.
Due on 14th October via TMWRK Records, the five-tracker is preceded by moody lo-fi bop ‘Warm Body’, which sees the teen ruminate on loneliness.
“‘Warm Body’ is about looking for comfort in people when you’re lonely and letting yourself make mistakes,” she explains. “The first time I met my producer Oli-Barton Wood, we wrote ‘Warm Body’ together, and by the end of the day I knew that I wanted him to produce the whole EP.
“Oli is insanely talented and was so lovely to work with, and recording ‘Porcupine’ was easily one of the best times of my life. He brought in Swedish band Francobollo to do some live band recording, they ended up becoming my live band and have been really good influences musically for me.
“The EP title relates to keeping people at arm’s length for fear of getting hurt, plus when I was recording it, I bleached my hair so many times that it broke off at the top and I spent three months looking like a porcupine.”
