‘Weirdo’ – single and album – were recorded with Scott Paterson (Sons and Daughters), the pair initially meeting while playing in the live band for The Vaselines 2019 tour, and beginning writing music together after playing at Belle and Sebastian’s ‘Boaty Weekender’ floating tour of the Med.

Of the single Easton says: “I’ve often been told I am weird – like that’s a derogatory word”.
“Let’s be clear,” she insists, “normal doesn’t exist. The things that make me weird are the things that make me, me.”
