Martha Ffion releases a new single, ‘After The Fact’, via Eigg-based imprint Lost Map.
Taken from the forthcoming ‘Nights To Forget’, the track is available on all digital platforms, as well as part of the label’s Postmap Club subscription service.
The new material from Glasgow-based singer-songwriter Claire McKay, AKA Martha Ffion, is the first taste of forthcoming second album ‘Nights to Forget’, due out on August 14th on 12” vinyl and via digital platforms.
‘After the Fact’ was written a couple of summers ago, at a time when Claire was, she says, “questioning things I could have done differently in the wake of a difficult event”.
“It’s a sort of rumination on the (often unhelpful) things you tell yourself and the platitudes that we sometimes offer up to others when we don’t know what else to say,” Claire explains. “Ultimately it’s about taking comfort in the idea that, no matter how bizarre or hard the thing you’re going through is, there’s probably at least one other person in the world who has been through it too.”
Ffion released her debut single ‘No Applause’ on Lost Map Records in 2015, and while her 2018 (and SAY Award-nominated) debut album ‘Sunday Best’ was on the Welsh imprint Turnstile Records, the Irish-born musician returned to Lost Map Records in 2019 for the release of single ‘Kennedy Hair‘.
