The Big Moon have released a new single, Trouble.

The insightful and infectious indie-rock song is the second cut to be lifted from their new album, following the previously unveiled Wide Eyes. Guitarist and vocalist Jules Jackson explained the inspiration behind the track:

“Trouble is about remembering walking over the railway bridge to the hospital to give birth. This is a bridge I cross every day, but somehow in my memory on that day it’s like a bridge over a canyon in a technicolour Wizard of Oz jungle landscape. Like giant leaves and blurry edges and oversaturated colours. But it’s just a pissy graffiti-covered South London pedestrian bridge. And it’s about learning that memories aren’t always right, and you don’t have to hang on to them and be traumatised by them forever. 

“I’ve since realised that this song has been more than a song to me, it’s been healing. Birth is traumatic, however you do it, and for me the early months of motherhood were even more traumatising. No one tells you how difficult breastfeeding is! It’s almost like, by making that experience sound like joy and then playing it again and again with my best friends, I've found a way of reframing my memory of that period. You can forget, you can remember it differently, you can heal, you can live.”

'Here Is Everything', the follow-up to 2020's 'Walking Like We Do', is due out through Fiction Records on October 14. The band will support it with a UK tour later in September, and an instore UK tour in October. Find tickets for the former below and latter here.
