Off the back off her recent Fairgrounds Festival performance alongside Liam Gallagher and The Lemonheads, Sydney’s own indie-pop sweetheart Lenka is set to tour the rest of Australia’s east coast this March, before heading off on her Northern Hemisphere tour.
Revealing the first taste from her Recover and Discover twin EP back in December, Lenka’s new single On My Side and accompanying cover of Pat Benatar’s We Belong was welcomed by fans with open arms…
“You do simple but perfect music” Mustafa Yuceler “I have panic disorder, and your music relaxes me so much, thank you for your work, it makes my life better” Douglas Klein “That interpretation has your stamp all over it! Awesome! Can’t wait for the full album!!!” Doren Sean Michael “I still have this music hangover to your previous album Attune, and now this, Oh Lenka please spare my ears” Arvin Bandilla Ornopia.
During her 15-year-long career, Lenka has always depended on songwriting as a form of therapy to help her unpack her own feelings, so when the music stopped flowing, Lenka was at a loss. Through despair, Lenka began to play around with covers and was surprised to find that the inspiration began to flow once more.
“First came the covers, then the originals, and it was the experience of reinterpreting these songs that got me inspired to write my own music again.” Lenka explained.
Featuring six brand new tunes alongside six reimagined covers, Lenka’s Recover and Discover twin EP will be released in the same order on Feb 14th and 28th, through Skipalong Records.
