She's In Parties Premiere New Single/Video "Puppet Show"

Essex-based dreampop/shoegaze band She’s In Parties have premiered their new single “Puppet Show“, alongside a music video.

The song serves as the title track of their upcoming sophomore EP, out on October 25 via Submarine Cat. Pre-order it here.

The EP, produced by Stephen Street (The Cranberries, The Smiths), explores political themes such as social media, war, and personal fears.

Speaking about the single, vocalist Katie Dillon says:

In the past I’ve felt pressure to have an online presence and I wasn’t always confident and these were the times where I felt I just wanted to ignore all my problems and procrastinate. Pushing music through my online image isn’t something I find easy and this song reflects this psychological battle. Being present online isn’t really a choice anymore for musicians and it’s not easy for those who struggle with their image but I’m learning to love myself more, accepting my insecurities and how I look, without fear of judgement.”

The inspiration came from an awful dream. “My teeth were decaying and falling out and I knew I had to go on stage and perform, which was absolutely terrifying,” she explained. “The song was written around this narrative, with me having to “smile” and perform, whilst also delving into a psychological battle.”
