Soak unveils new single 'Valentine Shmalentine'

With her eagerly-awaited sophomore album set to arrive in the coming months, Soak has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Valentine Shmalentine' is a timely release that takes aim at that annual lovefest next Thursday, and follows on from the previously shared 'Everybody Loves You' in previewing her new studio LP 'Grim Town', due out on the 26th April via Rough Trade Records.

Speaking about the new release, the frontwoman describes it as “a dystopia that I’ve created in my brain: me on the inside, processed into a pretend location. The way I could wrap my head around a lot of what I was going through was to make it feel like something quite physical and real. Once I had the idea of the album being an actual location, exploring the dynamics of this town and what it would look or sound like felt like the right way to give my mental state a personality.”
