Nancy has announced an upcoming mini-album with new track, ‘7 Foot Tall Post-Suicidal Feel Good Blues’.
The alt-pop oddball’s latest effort was inspired by his coming to terms with not fitting in, and is due on 15th January via B3SCI Records (Jungle, Fickle Friends, Trudy and the Romance).
“I used to get picked on a lot growing up in Sunderland to the point where I felt ashamed of myself and wanted to die,” he explains of the record’s origins. “Being 7ft. tall, and standing out in the crowd can see like an aspirational thing, when you have the option to blend back in, but when it is inescapable it can cause so many problems you maybe wouldn’t otherwise think of. Let’s face it, I didn’t exactly help myself by wearing women’s clothes and sporting a mullet, but if you’re not careful this shit can ruin your fucking life.
“Today, I am proud of who I am, I am grateful that I never fit in, I’m glad that I grew up lanky and daft-looking on a council estate because it forced me to the fringes, it forced me to double down on my weirdness and lean into being a fucking outsider. ‘7ft Tall Post-Suicidal Feel Good Blues” is a celebration, it’s my coming out party. Freaks of the world raise a glass, here’s to not giving a fuck anymore.”
