Check out her latest single ‘balance is gone’.

Set for release on 13th January on Invada Records, Billy Nomates has announced her second studio album ‘Cacti’.

“Writing CACTI took just over a year,” Tor Maries explains. “I wrote very intensely and then none at all. (This seems to be the way I work best). I picked up old drum machines, mapped out things in my kitchen with the same small micro keyboard I always use and then raided the cupboards and rooms at Invada Studios, to play and experiment with old synths, an upright piano, this weird organ thing. I hope everyone finds their own narrative in CACTI. I think it’s about surviving it all.”

Sharing new single ‘balance is gone’ alongside the news, she adds, “It’s a lot to ask, balance. Does anybody feel on kilter? Has anybody achieved all that harmony? I don’t think it’s a unique chase. And some days, it’s good to acknowledge it got up and left the room.”
