Buzzy New Zealander Molly Payton has shared another taster of forthcoming mini-album, ‘Slack’.

‘January Summers’ is the latest track released from the record, which follows this Friday (1st October).

“I wrote January Summers near the end of last year when I was missing New Zealand and all of the people I’d been close with before I moved to the UK,” explains Molly. “I was initially just wanting to write this joyous ode to being 15/16 and doing everything for the first time. Going to your first party, the first time you hear your favourite song, the first time you tell someone you like them and so on. Even musically I pulled influence from bands that my big brother used to play when he was driving me places at that age, like the really messy surf rock guitars and simple happy melodies. But it ended up also being about how complicated everything becomes the older you get - how I miss the joy and anticipation that came with the lack of direction I had when I was younger.”

The track follows singles ‘Honey’, ‘You Cut Me So Much Slack’ and ‘When Skies Were Always Blue’.

Molly heads out in support of Oscar Lang this October. Tickets are on sale now.
