Fresh from joining the FIFA soundtrack, Ireland’s slow jam queen Biig Piig has shared two new tracks ‘Oh No’ and ‘Liahr’. The double a-sided follow-up to ‘Don’t Turn Around’ see Jess Smyth continuing to mine a sparse ‘In Rainbows’ era Radiohead-esque combination of bass and drums with her own undeniable laid back style of delivery. Her debut album really can’t come quick enough.
‘Oh No’ is about being sad but also lockdown, unintentionally.” says Biig Piig of the track that pits inner clarity against external chaos. “that the safest place to be was my room – when I get paranoid or anxious or upset, hiding away felt like the easiest thing to do. Which is mad, because then quarantine happened and that literally was the safest place to be. ‘
“Liahr’ is about not trusting myself in recent relationships. I feel I’ve been running into things headfirst and believing myself when I say I’m all in, but then falling out of it as quickly as I fall into it. ‘Liahr’ is basically a one-to-one with myself about how I need to chill and stop hurting myself and others ‘cause of goddamn trauma.”
