I wrote this song at home in London with Martin Luke Brown and Matt Zara. We’re all very close friends so it was a really relaxed day of playing each other some music, and messing around with ideas. I had to run to my bar job in the evening so I quickly recorded the guitar part and we came up with ‘Pessimist’ as the title. I remember leaving the house feeling so creatively fulfilled and excited, and I knew this was what I wanted my EP to sound like. Anthemic, fun and textured. Euphoric with sad undertones while I try and unpack my very millennial confusion about myself and the world around me.”
