Following on from the release of her highly-praised debut EP 'Old News' last year, Alix Page has now announced her plans for a new EP, arriving next month.
The new five-track collection 'Goose' will include the previously shared offering 'Automatic', is being previewed by the new single '4Runner', and is set to be released on the 14th April via AWAL / Better Days.
Speaking about the new track, she said, “4Runner is about cars and the memories we associate with them. I was feeling particularly sentimental one day that I went home to Orange County; my best friend has been my next door neighbour since we were nine and pulling up to my neighbourhood and seeing her old car parked outside her house kind of set off a chain reaction of emotions and made me feel really old and like a teenager again all at the same time.
"Going home for the first time in a while is a really strange feeling, everything feels so familiar and so distant at the same time. I think sometimes people start to feel like that too; familiar in the sense that you grew up with them and they’ll always mean something to you, but distant in every other way. Moving out is something I obviously knew I had to do at some point but sometimes it’s so tempting to go back and stay comfy in my childhood bedroom forever. That's exactly how this particular breakup felt - being so scared to leave it because it was the only thing I'd known for a long time. That's the heart of this song."
