Brit punk rockers Screech Bats have revealed that their sophomore EP Wish You Were Her will be released on March 30!
Speaking of the EPs inspiration, frontwoman Esme Baker says; “It’s about women who have, for entirely different reasons, had a profound impact on my life, but are no longer in it. Including a feminine face in the artwork to mirror the title but somehow censor the eyes, gives the character anonymity, making whoever we are talking about a total enigma.”
Lead single Get Better has also just been released! Esme says of the track; “It is arguably quite a challenging and unusual song, but that is one of the reasons we decided to lead with it! It is our only track from the EP that is in 6/8 time and has a somewhat abnormal structure, but above anything is the message. The lyrics are much deeper than the surface appearance of missing someone – the song is about suffering with mental health and being put in recovery, ultimately understanding the value of the doctor and her staff who, in a very literal sense, saved my life. The song has a positive message of how it is possible to recover, and we all feel strongly that this is a message that cannot be put out there enough during this current epidemic of still largely stigmatised mental health conditions.”
