If you don’t know Etaoin yet, you should get to know her! She will break your heart with her new songs. The London-based singer-songwriter has just released her second EP I Hate Everyone (but I don’t mind you), which is great news for all lovers of real folk-pop music. That’s why, of course, we immediately said “yes” when she asked if she could take over our Instagram channel during her stay and performance at Haldern Pop next Thursday, 11 August.
“Whilst the first EP was about her getting her heart broken, this one is about being still broken, but scared of being hurt again,” Etaoin told me in our little chat some days ago.
The EP tells stories about trust, or rather lack of trust, after being deserted by someone important to her. You can feel the pain in the title song I Hate Everyone (but I don’t mind you) and you will certainly ache for her when you hear Cold Blood. The quieter nature of Sick of Me shows the talent of Etaoin for putting her thoughts into music just, reduced to guitar and vocals. My favorite, however, is her last single If I Ever Find Home, with which she invites us to continue to accompany her. We will!
This talented musician gives us back the hope that there is good handmade music out there, her music is not just an overload of effects. We get a strong and fragile voice from a lovely soul. A musician who has just decided to become a mother to a little puppy who is too cute to be scolded when he pees in the kitchen just before the interview starts.
All this together brings us to the amazing announcement of a special Instagram takeover!
