MISS JUNE: Anxiety On Repeat
Miss June release Anxiety On Repeat as part of a split 7" with Dunedin band Astro Children.
Speaking with Wendy Syfret for i-D lead singer Annabel Liddell explained how the track came about and the feelings that were attached to it:
"Yeah, after Matriarchy I essentially didn't write music for six months. I couldn't touch a guitar, my mental health was just shot-to-shit and I was having a really hard time. Every time I tried to write I felt really hyper-critical of myself so I just stopped doing it. I didn't event talk to the boys in the band for that whole time.
It wasn't intended to be the new single, it was more just needing to actually get over this anxiety, over it all. I wrote the guitar line on the top strings of the guitars in about five minutes, then brought it to the boys and told them we should practice because I hadn't seen them in a long time. I just played that guitar line repetitively and they hooked into it and the vocals just came the first time I opened my mouth"
