Holly Humberstone’s new single ‘The Walls Are Way Too Thin’ was written during an intense period of feeling claustrophobic and lost in a new flat, in a new city, and far away from home. This is a gorgeously dark and broody take on indie-pop which is both captivating and emotive.
“I wrote ‘The Walls Are Way Too Thin’ about a time in my life when I felt like I’d lost control of where I was heading and struggling to find my place in the world. I’d just moved to a small London flat and felt claustrophobic and alone. To avoid confronting how I was feeling I’d sneak out the flat and go on train journeys to see my mates, get drunk, then come back hungover through the night and early hours. I wrote most of the Walls and the songs that come next on those trains. It was my place of therapy, in the middle of nowhere, constantly moving with no destination.”
