Smoothboi Ezra has released a new single, ‘My Own Person’.
A proper lovely dose of introspective bedroom pop, it’s the first track from a collection of new songs set to be released in the coming months.
“I wrote this song when I was 16,” the now-18-year-old songwriter explains. “I had one or two outfits I would interchange and I wore the same grubby pair of shoes every day. They were replicas of a previous grubby pair I wore when I was 14 and 15. The song is about not being happy but not being able to do anything about it.”
“When I finish a song I let go of it, it’s not mine anymore and I forget it,” they add. “A lot of the time I’ll have to teach myself the song again before a live show.”
