Ahead of Fresh’s sophomore album, the London-based pop-punk outfit have released the bright Going To Brighton.
Originally from Brighton, the song details how we can become attached to places and the familiar faces, but also about being resilient. Starting fresh with a clean slate is a daunting endeavour but Fresh makes those anxieties disappear with this nimble fun piece.
Of the single, frontperson-songwriter Kathryn Woods notes:
“I wrote the line “there are things I’ve learnt inside my head that they can’t ever take away from me” as a kind of reminder to myself to value what I already have, how I can always rely on my own sense of self and my own inner strength.
On their forthcoming album, “Withdraw!”, Fresh filters through the anxieties of fitting in and no longer questioning their impulses. Written over the course of never-ending tours with the likes of The Beths, The Winter Passing and Caves, frontperson Kathryn Woods says these travels informed a record that focuses on everything from love and independence to anger and frustration. “Withdraw!” is due out June 7th via Specialist Subject Records.
