British alt-pop superstar RØRY has released her brand-new EP, Family Drama and it is available to download and stream here. Watch the official video for new single Black Hearse here.
The deeply personal EP has received rave reviews and acclaim and features the singles the apology I’ll never recieve, ALTERNATIVE and hurt myself.
Family Drama features the new, previously unheard lead single, Black Hearse and today RØRY reveals the official video, watch here. The video sees RØRY perform the song with her band in an abandoned house while in a torn wedding dress. Speaking of the track, RØRY says, “Welcome to anti-manifesting… let me explain. I wrote this song THREE WEEKS before meeting the person I was going to marry… they say it happens when you least it expect, and for me that was 100% true. This song is about how I would literally rather die then ever get married. I didn’t believe in it, and had zero interest in it, for reasons explained in the song. Scream it loud if you’re single…”
Discussing the 8 track EP, RØRY explains, “There is a proverb that says “the child who is not embraced by the village, will burn it down to feel its warmth”. That sums up this EP. It’s my messy attempt at making sense of a broken home, of addicted adults, of zero accountability, and of always being the one that is blamed.”
RØRY continues “I come from a dysfunctional family, where the absolute worst thing you can ever do is tell the truth. Mentioning the long term affair between my father and step-mother led to a breakdown in our relationship. But… their secrets are not my secrets. This EP is me finally giving a voice to the girl who has been silenced and shamed for simply having difficult emotions in the face of affairs. Rage, sadness, regret, grief… these are the words that come to mind when I think of my family of origin. And I know I am not the only one.”
RØRY has also announced their headline UK tour in February and March 2024. The tour will kick off in Bristol at Thekla on the 26th February then continue around the country hitting Cardiff, Norwich, Nottingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle, Birmingham before wrapping up in Brighton on the 11th March.
