Etaoin – If You Called

One of indie-folk’s freshest faces returns today with a beautifully captivating and emotive song.

Inspired by heartbreak, Etaoin’s ‘If You Called’ presents listeners with a stripped-back production that sets the scene for some powerfully raw and honest lyrics to shine through. Elaborating further on the song, Etaoin explains:

“After my first heartbreak I made a pact with myself to never let myself care that much about anyone ever again, but then I met this boy from Ireland. We used to drive through the Irish countryside and walk the beaches and talk for hours in his car, it was literally like shit straight out of a Hannah Montana movie.”

“He was so patient and kind and everything I should have needed, but I was so hurt and scarred that I was too scared to trust any boy and I didn’t want to commit. This caused a lot of issues and nine months in we called it quits. I realised after it all went down that I really put him through hell by pushing him away and acting like I didn’t care all the time.”

Now commanding more than 80k monthly listeners on Spotify alone, the momentum for this hugely talented singer and songwriter continues to grow. Etaoin tours across the UK later this month, with the dates listed below.
