NEWS: Lizzie Reid releases latest cut, ‘Warpaint’ from new E.P

Lizzie Reid has today released a new single from her forthcoming E.P Mooching that is due out 27th July.

The track,‘Warpaint’, is a fantastic, up tempo rolling number that moves on from the gorgeous duo of ‘Bible’ and ‘How Do I Show My Love’ that tugged on the heartstrings.

Co-written with Andy Monaghan of Frightened Rabbit it is a much more ambitious sounding song that kicks hard straight away with heavy tremolo electric guitar that adds layers of unexpected anthemic quality to Lizzie’s much bigger vocal than previously.

She has stated on social media she is co-writing on a much more rock orientated project and this suggests she is more than capable of pulling that off.

With her previous EP Cubicle and first two tracks from the upcoming second effort, Lizzie is much more inclined towards the more delicate and melancholic side of being a solo artist, stripped back to acoustic guitar and piano, her voice is gentle and brittle with beautiful cracks to it that gives it the humanity it is portraying. Here she is loud and proud with shades of Julia Jacklin which is never a bad thing.

Lizzie says “‘Warpaint’, to me, is a song that says enjoy today and stop worrying about the details. There are challenges ahead but for now, live in the moment, enjoy making music and go out and experience new things.

I feel that its story is something that most people can relate to: you fancy someone who doesn’t fancy you back! It’s not the end of the world because the relationship was over before it ever began. There’s no point in getting upset about such things. It’s a lighthearted song and it gives me a chance to let loose for a bit when I perform it live.”

Mooching is out on sevenfoursevensix in a few weeks. She plays Latitude Festival next month.
