Angie McMahon Shares Video for New Single ‘Exploding’

    Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Angie McMahon has shared ‘Exploding’, the latest single from her forthcoming album Light, Dark, Light Again – out October 27 via AWAL Recordings. It follows the previously released tracks ‘Saturn Returning’, ‘Letting Go’, and ‘Fireball Whiskey’. Check out its accompanying video, co-directed with Bridgette Winten, below.

    “This song is a promise that I’ll allow myself to erupt sometimes, to physically release my emotions, be a wild and dramatic animal, rather than always trying to keep my big feelings repressed and hidden,” McMahon explained in a statement. “We need to acknowledge what we’re feeling and express it. I wanted the song to sound as big as flying through the galaxy, to be a space to fall apart into. It’s not always clear where we’re supposed to fall apart, but I just know it’s important that we do. It was born out of a song prompt from Ruby Gill: ‘Approach something new with an animal body and an open mind and see where it takes you…you could zoom out really far and go to space.”
