With their new album due this Friday, October 14th, The Big Moon have shared one last preview of the record with their fourth single, ‘Daydreaming’.
On the new track, The Big Moon’s Juliette Jackson says: “This is a weird one for me. I always thought this song was about breastfeeding but it’s so happy – and honestly, my experience of breastfeeding was awful and one of the hardest times of my life. The breastfeeding I’m singing about in this song is the happiest, lightest, wooziest, cuddliest version of it. Looking back, maybe I was just yearning for that.”
“Being unable to breastfeed felt like failure, like something had been taken away from me,” she reveals. “I must’ve just wanted to imagine it had all gone a different way. It was a long time before I was able to be honest with myself about so much of the pain of the early days of motherhood. That’s the power of pop music isn’t it – you can be whoever you want to be. It’s happy and sad all at the same time.”
