In August, Shannon Lay released her Sub Pop debut August. Now, she has followed up with two new tracks from the August sessions – ‘Blue’ and ‘We Mend’ – which are available to hear below…

‘We Mend’ is a song for healing. In those moments where everything seems broken, it can be hard to have perspective, but whether we know it or not everything will be ok. ‘Blue’ is about the struggle of loving someone who is gone a lot. A gentle reassurance to one another that even if you’re not physically together, the love remains strong. ‘Blue’ is also a reference to, as Shannon puts it, “the colour of Marge Simpson’s hair. I’ve always admired her devotion and understanding.”

‘Blue’ and ‘We Mend’ are part of the December 2019 installment of the Sub Pop Singles Club alongside a new 7″ from The Shins. You can subscribe to the Singles Club here.
