"how are you not freaking out?"
Greta Isaac reveals her expansive new single ‘how are you not freaking out?’, the latest instalment to her eagerly anticipated new EP ‘I Think You’d Hate It Here’ - due for release on 6th May. She will headline Jack Saunders’ infamous ‘Hopscotch’ club night at Oslo, Hackney on 8th April and is set to support tastemaker act Dan D’Lion on his UK tour in the run up to her London show.
“I wrote this one with my good friend Orla Gartland and Matt Zara. This song has always felt like a dark, wet, cold suburban neighbourhood. I guess what that brings up for me is the suppression of emotion in a bid to keep up with appearances, or to avoid becoming difficult. And even when you’re brave enough to speak up and be truthful about your emotions, and you’re met with resistance or rejection, you can feel lonely and it can be difficult to trust yourself ever again. To me, this is a song about honesty, anger and resistance.”
Previous release 'NUH UH' saw Greta gaining further tastemaker support with the likes of PAPER magazine and Sunday Times Culture hailing her one to watch for 2022.
Radio 1 are huge fans, and in 2022 alone support has come from from Clara Amfo, Jack Saunders (Next Wave), Sian Eleri (Tune Of The Week), Gemma Bradley, Best New Pop and Dean McCullough.
Greta is already an adept story teller, offering a unique lyrical lens that is often deeply, and sometimes uncomfortably, relatable to the listener, effortlessly combining humorous self deprecation with real personal critique and analysis.
Greta's upcoming second EP is due in May, following her debut EP PESSIMIST. Expect an exuberant, raw and assertive collection of songs that sees Greta navigating millennial anxieties, her newfound artistic fluidity and her position as a woman in modern society.
