With her highly-anticipated new album landing in the coming months, Half Waif has now unveiled the next cut to lifted from her forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Sodium & Cigarettes' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Swimmer', 'Take Away The Ache', 'Party’s Over', and 'Orange Blossoms' in previewing her new LP 'Mythopoetics', which is out on the 9th July via ANTI-Records.
Speaking about the new offering, she said, "'Sodium & Cigarettes' follows the theme of many of the tracks on Mythopoetics and deals with the recognition that no one is going to magically save us or pull us out of our misery. The chorus 'okay, give it another day' is something I say to myself when I've had a really awful day and everything feels like a wash. It's a deep breath and a stab at courage - I can face tomorrow, and who knows what possibilities for joy and growth that will bring. While working on the album during the Democratic Primary in early 2020, the song took on new meaning for me in light of political conversations. "I believe in something more than what's in front of me" became a commentary on people saying, 'well, this system is what we've got and you can't ask for more.' I firmly believe that we have to fight for the world we imagine, that everything is possible. So this song is really a quiet encouragement for me, a way to tell myself to stop running, to face what's coming with clarity and vision and courage, to know there's another tomorrow."
