After delivering her highly-praised sophomore album 'Grim Town' last year, singer and songwriter Bridie Monds-Watson aka SOAK now returns with her first new release of 2020.
The new spoken-word single 'I'm Alive' features an instrumental from Saint Sister's Gemma Doherty, and comes accompanied by a new short film, created by Ellius Grace.
Speaking about the new offering, SOAK said, "Ellius Grace reached out to me during the lockdown with this idea of creating an ‘antidote to anxiety’, with the concept centering around finding beauty in the mundane. I sat down in the up and down waves of isolation, when I let my brain go I started to write about how it feels to ‘wake up’ from a long depression. The relief when a tide starts to turn and things I’d given up on begin to seem possible again. Ellius asked Gemma Doherty to compose the soundtrack and she provided a gentle and gripping bed to speak over. I hope this piece can act as a reminder that it won’t always be like this."
