about

In support of the new record, Stewart recently announced a rare run of September 2019 UK tour dates supporting labelmate Natalie Evans (see below for full listings) with tickets on sale now.

A highly addictive loop-driven hypnotic track with simple, minimal lyrical content. Stewart wrote ‘Coo Coo’ while playing around with her trusty TC Helicon Voicelive Touch 2 loop station, which is integral to her unique sound. The only track on the album not produced and recorded by David Trumpmanis, ‘Coo Coo’ was produced by Stewart’s friend Dave Kempton (aka "Other Dave").

“I was getting frustrated having not recorded or released anything a few years ago,” explains Stewart, “and Dave offered to record a couple tracks at his home. I came over and recorded this track one afternoon, then, when it came to putting down the album, we decided to just use this recording and layer some drums and bass synth.”

Commenting on the single, she says: “‘I was testing out having multiple tracks and seeing what was possible. I love getting a kinda dark grungy odd metre riff and layering it with smooth simple vocals. I also wanted to play around rhythmically with the vocals, as looping allows me to create more complicated ideas than I can do live. My favourite part is the off-beat: ‘Don't forget about me, I could be anybody, I don't mind…’ It's a simple idea but has this really cool effect of cross rhythmic patterns because of the 5/8 guitar riff.”

“While writing this I was visualising a cuckoo bird coming out of a cuckoo clock and just having a good time. The theme is a bit open to interpretation but maybe it suggest feelings of freedom, escapism, liberation, and identity.”

lyrics

Coo Coo at midnight… and gather… fly away…
Don’t forget about me, I could be anybody, I don’t mind
Coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo…
