Self Esteem has released ‘Rollout’, a “bloody break up song”

‘Rollout’ follows a sold out headline show at London’s Omeara last night.

Self Esteem – that’s Rebecca Taylor out of Slow Club, ‘FYI’ – has dropped a new song.

‘Rollout’ follows a sold out headline show at London’s Omeara last night (Wednesday 19th September), and follows on from recent track ‘Wrestling’. She’s not long(ish) released her EP ‘Your Wife’, too.

“In my last relationship I used to joke that I couldn’t write about her because we never had any problems,” she explains of ‘Rollout’. “We never argued. I used to say: ‘Can you treat me a bit more badly please, so I can write some more songs?’ And it was a joke, but it was true.

“And then one day she just left, and I was, like, ‘Shit.’ But then I was also so happy in a really sadistic way because I had something to write about. I just went straight in and had this idea for Rollout. It’s a very simple bloody break up song. It’s about how I was in panto and people kept sending me flowers, and I kept thinking they would be from her, and they never were from her. It was just a room full of flowers. And what is a room full of flowers if the flowers aren’t from who you want them to be from?”
