ETTIE: 'HELLO, I'VE GOT ANXIETY'


'hello, i've got anxiety' is ettie's third release. It was written during lockdown, and produced quickly and remotely, to accentuate the simple and calm nature of the song. Struggling with anxiety disorder herself, ettie wanted to write a song that provided a soundtrack to other peoples' anxieties, to hopefully in time open up the dialogue around mental health.


ettie found that mental health songs tend to fall into two categories: really awfully tragic, which is great for when you are deep in despair; or super positive, which great for when you're trying to get out of it. Taking contemporary influences from Pale Waves - with a strong reliance on her early-00s pop-punk inspirations (Paramore, Mayday Parade) - she writes a song that sounds like anxiety to her: a reality.


Now, she is releasing her third single, 'hello, i've got anxiety’. It turns inwards on her classic pop-punk style into a softer, calm yet sombre song. Self-written, and then produced (Hoeningermix), in lockdown and remotely, ettie gives a song to the heart of anxiety.


ettie is an up and coming singer-songwriter from London, who drinks a lot of wine has a lot of feelings. She infuses classic pop-punk melodies with personal, storytelling narratives. Her unique sound coupled with her background in English Literature allows for an immersive sonic experience, using word play and allusion to bring her songs to life.


Her first single 'fast cars and airplanes' went on to get radio play on BBC Scotland, and great blog acclaim. Her second single 'softboi' showcased the sharp, witty side to her songwriting. ettie has played impressive venues such as Brixton Jamm and The Slaughtered Lamb, and supported incredible artists like Calvin Rodgers.


Now, she is releasing her third single, 'hello, i've got anxiety.' Self-written, and then produced (Hoeningermix), in lockdown and remotely, ettie gives a song to the realities of anxiety. Struggling with anxiety disorder herself, ettie wanted to write a song that provided a soundtrack to other peoples' anxieties, to hopefully in time open up the dialogue around mental health. In this song ettie strips back her classic alt-pop/pop-punk sound, to provide a relief to those with anxiety, and turns towards a more acoustic, softpop.
