Martha Ffion releases a new single ‘Rosaleen’, on Lost Map.

Backed with a live session version of the track, it’s taken from her latest album ‘Nights To Forget‘ – from August, her second long-player for the label.

It also sees the launch of the new PostMap Club, a new scheme from the Eigg-based imprint which will see members receive exclusive specially-commissioned material every month – from remixes and alternative versions to session tracks and full livestream concerts.

This includes ‘Captured on Cassette’, a brand new six-track live session by Ffion aka Glasgow-based Irish singer-songwriter Claire McKay.

Recorded for both audio and video release at Chime Studios in Glasgow in the late summer of 2020 (before new Covid-19 restrictions were implemented), the EP features McKay/Ffion performing alongside Suse Bear (Good Dog / Pictish Trail / Tuff Love) and Beth Chalmers (Savage Mansion / Molly Linen).

The session will premiere as a livestream on November 25th at 8pm, free to Postman Club subscribers, £5 ‘entry’ otherwise.

Ffion says of the session: “During those brief, halcyon days of ‘Phase 3’, I moved quickly to pull together a live session that would be more exciting than my living room acoustic streams.

“With time of the essence and restrictions on group numbers I knew a more minimal set up would be needed. We ended up revisiting some of my original demos for inspiration – picking out the most important elements of each song and focusing on getting the harmonies just right.

“The theme ‘captured on cassette’ comes from a Nights to Forget lyric. I hunted down some vintage cassette players and tried to give the room a seedy ‘70s motel aesthetic. We had a lot of fun and were giddy to be making music in a room together. Although it’s been pre-recorded, I’m really looking forward to the communal experience of watching it with everyone on November 25 and engaging with people.”

Of her new single, she adds: “‘Rosaleen’ was inspired by my grandma (not her real name). She was an incredibly strong and smart woman, known for her sharp tongue and love of a party (like a Welsh Lucille Bluth). Although we didn’t see eye to eye on everything politically, I’m glad of the many things she taught me and all the love she gave.”
