It’s the second single taken from their new album, ‘Here Is Everything’.

Ahead of the release of their third album ‘Here Is Everything’ on 14th October via Fiction Records, The Big Moon are sharing their newest single ‘Trouble’.

“Trouble is about remembering walking over the railway bridge to the hospital to give birth,” Juliette Jackson explains. “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.”
