Billie Marten Returns With New Single Mice

Monday, 10 September 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Billie Marten has returned with a new single.

Mice is the first new material to emerge from the singer-songwriter since the release of her debut album, 'Writing of Blues and Yellows', in 2016. The track is a laid back indie-folk number with a simple accompaniment to Marten's voice and guitar.

In a statement about the song, she said:

“I felt sort of empty and lacking a lot of purpose. Mice came out of that sentiment which is why the drums are so lethargic and lazy. The chorus though, reflects how last year I didn’t know who to ‘imitate’. It seemed there was only good and bad people in black and white; I was the anomaly in the middle. 

Then I went walking and sat on a dead man’s bench and wrote the last verse.” 

Marten will play Kenilworth Arts Festival on September 29 and the O2 Ritz in Manchester as part of Neighbourhood Festival on October 5.
