Hannah Read, the artist who records as Lomelda, has shared the new single ‘Scaredy’s World’. A collaboration with More Eaze, the track arrives via Read’s newly launched label, Double Yolk Record House. Listen to it below.
Speaking about the song, Read said in a statement: “How do I say what Scaredy means to me? Scaredy demands that her song be sung with conviction. Scaredy wants the stereo maxed. Scaredy chooses rot over forever. She pulls me out of my half life and shows me my death so that the squirmings of hope will stir in my gut again. I let my soul come out my mouth, as inspired by my best friend, my sweet Scaredy, for all my remaining days.”
“It’s been such a dream to make music with Hannah Read over the last few years,” Mari Maurice added. “The more we’ve worked together, the more I’ve truly felt that we are often trying to say the same things in our music but in different ways/with different tools. “Scaredy’s World” is somewhat of a literal manifestation of this as I wrote words/sang with Hannah’s own processed glossolalia and felt our voices and our ideas merging into one. To me this song captures so much of the simultaneous wonder and fear that comes with being alive and I feel touched that I get to sing about and experience much of that with Hannah and Lomelda.”
Of her new label, Read commented: “I started this thing called Double Yolk Record House to shelter my experiments in making and sharing music. Double Yolk currently functions as a small and simple artist favored record label, but it will one day also be a real life house and serve many functions to support a common musicful life outside the usual cycles and mindsets of the rock star industry.”
