Track of the Week: ‘Change Shapes’ by Lauren Mayberry

Last year, Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry debuted solo music with ‘Are You Awake?’ and ‘Shame.’ Now, the Scottish indie pop singer is back with the new song ‘Change Shapes.’

“I feel like I perform to the general public but also play a character inside the internal experience, because there is so much negotiation involved in my existence there,” she said in a statement. “How do I keep people happy enough that they’ll let me do the creative work that I want to? I feel quite fake and hypocritical sometimes because so much of the narrative around the band is “feminist”, but my experience inside of it hasn’t been a lot of the time. I feel like I did all this work to make things function but when you DO adapt yourself in that way, it’s seen as manipulative, in order to get what you want.”

‘Change Shapes’ was written by Mayberry, Matt Koma, Cleo Tighe, and Evan Blair, and produced by Koma. Hear it below. [via Stereogum]
