Sonic experimenters Mermaidens have unveiled another killer single from their third studio album Look Me In The Eye, due out just around the corner next Friday 6th September, following their appearance at this week's The Others Way festival. 'She’s Running' rocks full steam ahead with a psychedelic bass line, delightful guitar melodies, and the band’s trademark spine-tingling vocals. The third single from their forthcoming LP will give you goosebumps, telling a story of someone running for their life.

Mermaidens co-vocalist / guitarist Gussie Larkin explains: "The inciting moment for writing 'She’s Running' was one afternoon when I was looking after two very sweet but insane little boys in the playground after school. I’ve done a bit of childcare as a side hustle over the years, but nothing could prepare me for what I can only describe as a Fight to the Death. These two kids started lunging at each other, trying to tear the other one apart! I was completely out of my depth. Then suddenly all these Mums were around me, helping calm these kids down, and reassuring me too. It might seem like a trivial little incident but it gave me a new appreciation for these women and their unseen work.

After everything chilled out and the boys were best friends again, I sat in the sun watching the women around me playing with and caring for their children. I felt really small and strange, and that’s when I scribbled the chorus lyrics “I’m shrinking beside the wise woman” in my diary."

Look Me In The Eye' releases on Friday 6th September via Flying Nun and is available for pre-order right here.
