Molly Payton has announced a new mini-album titled Slack. It’s out October 1, and the new single ‘You Cut Me So Much Slack’ is out today alongside an accompanying Taylor Mansfield-directed video, following on from the previously released ‘Honey’ (which was our Song of the Week). Check it out below.
“‘You Cut Me So Much Slack’ is a song I wrote initially for my EP Porcupine, but decided just before it came out that it fit better in this project,” Payton explained in a press release. “In Porcupine when I wrote about friendships and relationships I was placing a lot of blame on other people, whereas my coming project Slack is more self-reflective and centres around taking responsibility for your own faults in order to grow. My anxiety used to make it almost impossible to communicate and express my feelings to someone, and when I tried it would never come out the way I wanted it to. That’s what this song is driven by, that frustration and desperation of wanting someone but not being able to tell them.”
Porcupine, released last year, was one of our favorite EPs of 2020 Revisit our Artist Spotlight Q&A with Molly Payton.
