With her highly-anticipated new album set to land in the coming weeks, Half Waif has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Horse Racing' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Swimmer', 'Take Away The Ache', 'Party's Over', 'Orange Blossoms', and 'Sodium & Cigarettes' in previewing her new LP 'Mythopoetics', which is out on the 9th July via ANTI-Records.
Speaking about the new offering, she said, "I started writing 'Horse Racing' in an Airbnb in Brooklyn that week in March 2020 when everything got really real. Alone in an unfamiliar apartment, as an unseen force took over our lives, I was struck by how much of a wake-up call it all was. How we were being shaken by our shoulders and told to face something really ugly and monstrous about our ways of being. It felt like we were race horses who had only just realized we were on a track, going around again and again. There’s no end in a circle. And maybe now that we recognized this, we could break out of it, bust right out of the ring - which is what the end section feels like sonically to me. A shot at freedom."
