Asha Jefferies ponders the holidays on new single ‘Keep My Shit Together’

Brisbane, Australia based indie-pop riser Asha Jefferies has unveiled her new single ‘Keep My Shit Together’, following recent tour supports and shows with acts including Julia Jacklin, Stella Donnelly, City and Colour, Lime Cordiale and Middle Kids.

‘Keep My Shit Together’ was produced and mixed by Sam Cromack of widely adored Brisbane band Ball Park Music, in his cosy studio Prawn Records in the inner north of the city. Testing her own bravery in the face of milestone-induced anxiety (in this instance, celebrating Christmas with a new partner) – “I get sentimental around the holidays” Jefferies proposes in the song’s opening refrain, before asking herself “Why do I stay in the city? / With all these angry people” as the song bounces between head-spinning indie-pop, demonstrating both assured humour and a sense of gravitas.

Speaking on the track’s creation and its lyrical inspiration, Asha Jefferies said: “‘Keep My Shit Together’ was written one hot and sweaty day around my piano in December. While feeling stuck and existential, this song is an ode to bringing lightness to hot and heavy feelings around Christmas time. We recorded this in mid-December, air-con cranking and all in organised matching white tank tops.”
