With her eagerly-awaited new album ‘Prioritise Pleasure’ set to make an impact on 22nd October, Self Esteem is giving us the latest taste of what to expect, with new gem ‘Moody’.

An anthemic new’un, with the instantly iconic opening line of “sexting you at the mental health talk seems counterproductive…”, she says, “Moody is a song about reclaiming being a moody cow. My whole life I’ve been referred to as mardy (northern for moody) but lately I’ve been realising as a woman in this world, especially as a woman in the music industry, of fucking course I’m moody! It’s such a slog even getting heard, every day shitting yourself about your safety, the societal expectations. I’d love to be sweet and happy go lucky but I’m afraid I’m too tired to be most of the time.”
