Rising Scottish artist Ess_Gee today releases her debut single ‘Bubble Queen’ on Single Track Records. The upbeat and instantly catchy pop track has a dreamy synth band sound combined with her silky vocals, while the moving lyrics depict love, loss and the power of memories.
The Glasgow-based songwriter and musician, real-name Shanine Gallagher, worked on the track – the first she wrote following the tragic passing of a close friend – with producer Joe McAlinden from Single Track Records.
Ess_Gee says of her debut song: “‘Bubble Queen’ was written at a time where everything seemed to be falling apart. I couldn’t speak out loud so the process of trying to make sense of what happened led to the lyrics. I was thinking about it all when I was awake, and even in my sleep, as though I was reminding myself that I don’t want to lose memories, and I don’t want to wake up to this world that selfishly moves on without you in it. So, I’ll just stay here.”
With her first track out today, which demonstrates her talent as a songwriter with honest and heartfelt lyrics, Ess_Gee plans to release more singles later this year.
Inspired by acts including Wolf Alice, Chromatics, Desire and Pure Bathing Culture, Ess_Gee’s music fuses pop, electronica, shoegaze and indie, with songs about friendship and survival whilst also drawing on the mood of her rural birthplace in Lochaline in the Scottish Highlands.
Single Track Records is a joint venture between Joe McAlinden (Superstar) and music management company ie:music. ‘Bubble Queen’ is the debut release on the new label, which is based in Strachur, Argyll, on the west coast of Scotland.
