tinyumbrellas (they/she), the moniker of 20-year-old Leeds-based, Norfolk-born DT, releases their new single ‘Life of an Extra’, out now via independent label Sevenfoursevensix. The single follows a series of self-released EPs, including 2022’s Kaleidoscope Towns featuring tracks like ‘Please Don’t Make This Weird’.
‘Life of an Extra’ was made with producer Josh Scarbrow (Arlo Parks, Etta Marcus, Eli Smart), and speaks of feeling like a spectator to the perceived glamour of other people’s lives.
tinyumbrellas explains; “‘Life of an Extra’ revolves around the sinking feeling of perceiving everyone around you living their fantastic, fun and fulfilling lives, meanwhile you, on the other hand, are not. I imagine the song to be set in Paris (famously the most romantic city in the world)- the setting for so many great stories and films centred around people living their lives with purpose, with loved ones. A lyric that sums up the song is: Someday I just want to know what that’s like, to be the main part of a romanticised life.”
