Magpie Blue ‘Just In Time’, debut single from Edinburgh-based singer songwriter Magpie Blue via Seahorse Music.
Written, we’re told, “at 2am in her cupboard-like University bedroom” and produced in Edinburgh by Rod Jones of Idlewild, ‘Just in Time’ features drummer Michael Reid of Man of Moon and guitarist Louise McCraw of Goodnight Louisa.
Magpie Blue is the guise of Millie Hanlon Cole, a 19-year-old singer-songwriter originally from Peebles.
The singer said of the new track: “The melody holds quite a nostalgic melancholy, which inspired me to sing about escaping the grip of the emotional crutch of a past relationship.
“Getting over someone who‘s had a massive emotional hold of you, held all of the cards so to speak and left you feeling powerless. Then, there is that moment when you finally do get over it, force the other person to face up to the way they’ve treated you and you regain your power.”
Magpie Blue has supported the likes of Sam Evian and Sam Brookes, and recently opened for The Proclaimers in their open0air Melrose gig.
She also plays Doune the Rabbit Hole on 20th July.
