On the rise Essex based singer, songwriter and producer Erin LeCount releases her latest single, ‘Bday Blues’ via Good as Gold Records. Inspired by the cinematic, dreamy and experimental, influenced by artists such as Fiona Apple, Lorde, The XX, Florence + The Machine, Lana del Rey, BANKS, FKA Twigs and Sampha, she’s creating an innovative, ethereal, alternative-pop coming of age soundtrack, filled with synths, layered vocals and industrial everyday sounds.
On the track, Erin says, “’BDAY BLUES’ is about the feeling of growing pains, nostalgia, changing as a person (not knowing if it’s for the better or worse) and dreading not being seventeen anymore. It’s for the people like me who struggle around the time of their birthday or the dark, dull late January kind of empty feeling. I started writing ‘BDAY BLUES’ on my 18th birthday during lockdown, as that day felt more like a time of grief for who I used to be, rather than a day of celebration.”
