With their highly-anticipated new album landing next month, The Big Moon have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Trouble' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Red Tubby, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Wide Eyes' in previewing their third LP 'Here Is Everything', which is out on the 14th October via Fiction Records.
Speaking about the new offering, the band's Juliette Jackson said, “Trouble is about remembering walking over the railway bridge to the hospital to give birth. This is a bridge I cross every day, but somehow in my memory on that day it’s like a bridge over a canyon in a technicolour Wizard of Oz jungle landscape. Like giant leaves and blurry edges and oversaturated colours. But it’s just a pissy graffiti-covered South London pedestrian bridge. And it’s about learning that memories aren’t always right, and you don’t have to hang on to them and be traumatised by them forever.
“I’ve since realised that this song has been more than a song to me, it’s been healing. Birth is traumatic, however you do it, and for me the early months of motherhood were even more traumatising. No one tells you how difficult breastfeeding is! It’s almost like, by making that experience sound like joy and then playing it again and again with my best friends, I've found a way of reframing my memory of that period. You can forget, you can remember it differently, you can heal, you can live.”
