She’s In Parties “Summer Haze”

Essex-based dreampop/shoegaze band She’s In Parties have returned with their new single “Summer Haze“.

The song is out now via Submarine Cat Records, and follows on from last year’s single “Cherish“. Get the it here.

Sprightly, synth-heavy, and softly chirpy goth-pop ‘Summer Haze’ sinks its teeth into a hazy, smoke-induced hysteria in the most soothing of ways. Swirling with reverb and jangles, albeit tranquil on the surface when bypassing the lyrical content, it in fact details vocalist Katie Dillon having a freak out after experimenting with smoking marijuana for the first time.

Speaking about it, frontperson Katie Dillons says:

“I think this song makes it out that I’ve done something much worse. It’s about the first time ever I smoked weed in central park in Chelmsford, so some of you can imagine that was already a bad choice. This song tells the story of that time, the parts where I thought I was gonna die or I thought there were undercover police.”

“As the song goes, I start to realise that it wasn’t just about the drug. I start to realise that I’m just falling apart as a person and also that people everywhere are falling apart, but relying on substances to get them through the shit times; sometimes we need an escape but it doesn’t completely push away the problems in our lives.”

Take a listen below.

She’s In Parties are Katie Dillon (vocals/guitar), alongside her friends Herbie Wiseman (guitar), Matt Carman (drums), and Charlie Johnson (bass). Taking their cues from the likes of Slowdive, Cocteau Twins and The Cure, the band harbour a sense of nostalgia certainly, but they avoid feeling derivative.
