Taite Music Prize winner Emily Edrosa, frontwoman and driving force of Street Chant, has revealed the first single from her debut solo album Another Wave is Coming, releasing locally this November via her own newly announced label PSL Sound and in the US via Park The Van. Launched along with a self-directed collaged clip created during isolation with the support of NZ On Air, the LA-based Aotearoa artist stated in conversation with 95bFM this morning that the hook-packed 'Drinking During The Day' is her last song about alcohol, and that she's been "feeling kooky" living for long stretches of time by herself while Covid-19 rages through the US.

Mixed by legendary producer John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Waxahatchee), Another Wave is Coming will also feature contributions from Alex Freer (Tiny Ruins) and Liz Stokes (The Beths). Created to handle the New Zealand release of the new record, Edrosa said PSL Sound will initially also reprint out of print Street Chant albums and hinted at a new project to be revealed in the near future too.

Emily Edrosa spoke about exploring both new and familiar territory on the single: “This is one of the first songs I wrote for my record, and after this I knew the album wasn’t going to be folky like my EP was. The end guitar solo is one of the funnest things I have ever recorded. As far as drinking during the day goes, I wouldn’t recommend it —except on Christmas which is when this song takes place. Unless the drinking is a metaphor, which I hope it is.”

'Drinking During The Day' is out now via PSL Sound & Park The Van.
