Charlotte Sands has shared her new EP Good Now featuring the new tracks Good Now and Lovesick.
The release comes after Charlotte Sands won the Best Breakthrough Album for Love and Other Lies at the Heavy Music Awards. The EP now marks the next step in her rapid rise.
The Good Now EP plays on Charlotte Sands’ genre jumping musicianship, bringing in pop-punk, alt-pop, rock, emo and synth-rock.
Speaking about the EP, Charlotte Sands said, “The Good Now EP is about a lot of different experiences and stories throughout the last year of my life, but overall it’s about my struggle with disassociation. My entire life my goal has always been to connect with people, it’s why I make music and why I love to perform, so when I started to experience an overwhelming disconnect from my life and the people around me I became extremely anxious, afraid that my biggest motivation and (what felt like) my reason for existing was going to disappear. I still experience these feelings every day and that fear still exists in me, but through creating these songs I was able to find peace and reassurance that I will always find my way out.”
Charlotte Sands added about the two new tracks on the EP, “Good Now is about self reflection and how frustrating it can feel to be overly self aware to the point of being unable to exist without analysing every reaction and emotion. This song is supposed to mirror the feeling of spiralling, ultimately giving up control and giving in to the downfall.
“Lovesick is about being unable to connect to someone but desperately wanting to. It’s about the experience of feeling distant or disassociated and the inability to let someone in even when you need them. This song is also about mourning the version of myself that could let my guard down without the fear of getting hurt and missing the person I was before failed relationships and hurtful experiences made me jaded and self-protective.”
