Australian singer/songwriter Sarah Mary Chadwick, recently shared a video for “Full Mood.” The track is off of her LP, Me And Ennui Are Friends, Baby, out February 5th on Ba Da Bing (Julie Byrne, Noveller). The accompanying video, directed by Tristan Scott-Behrends, visualizes the track’s tenderness, depicting intimate moments between a couple. Joined by long time production collaborators, Ennui was mastered by David Walker at Stepford Audio and mixed and recorded by Geoff O’Connor at Vanity Lair.
Sarah Mary Chadwick on “Full Mood:”
“”Full Mood” is about a Valentine’s Day date I went on. The owner of the bar we were at tried to get us both to fuck her, but she wouldn’t let me be in charge so we didn’t. I remember afterwards we were walking down the road and it was streetlights and still at 3am and everything felt great and shining and I remember thinking that I wish my dad could’ve done this, got drunk and kicked around the city at night when it’s all sparkly, holding onto someone who lights you up, not been stuck in silent dark rural New Zealand, watching other people’s lives on TV, drinking half glasses of box wine while his frowning wife ironed.”
Along with the news, Chadwick has also announce four live performances starting in February. Performing Me And Ennui… in its entirety, Chadwick will also be revisiting her favourite moments from her two previous records, 2020’s Please Daddy and 2019’s The Queen Who Stole The Sky. Either performing with guests or alone.
Just weeks before the Ennui recordings in 2019, Chadwick endured the breakup of a long term relationship and attempted her own life. These events followed the deaths of her father and a close friend, and it’s from this weighty internal mire that Chadwick emerges throughout the trilogy.
