‘Everybody Loves You’ is the first preview of an upcoming new record(!) from Bridie Monds-Watson, and it’ll be road tested at four UK & Irish dates in November.
She describes ‘Everybody Loves You’ as “a song about extreme denial. More specifically about my stubborn ability to convince myself I don’t want something that I do and blind my rational thought process - I suppose in this case, as a way of self-protection (and avoiding vulnerability).
“The lift at the end of the song (“Everybody wants you, And I do too”) represents the almost comedic/foolish acceptance of my own feelings. A 360 turn of events in which I then so desperately want all that I had rejected and pushed away. A consistent theme of my younger self.”

26 Belfast, Oh Yeah
