This lead to recording a new EP in Nashville, with award-winning producers Jake Finch and Collin Pastore (Lucy Dacus).

The first single from the new record, ‘I Don’t Want to Meet Your Mother.’ is being played across multiple territories in Apple Music’s New Indie playlist. The single ‘The Runner’ is also airing on MTV in Germany.
