Liverpool neo-soul newcomer Mersey Wylie is excited to release ‘Giving Myself Away’, the first single taken from her forthcoming debut EP, The Skin I Live In, which is set for release on 15th November 2018.
Known for her unique take on neo-soul, Wylie draws on her background in classical and jazz and infuses those influences with her love of soul. She creates every element of her music herself, from the vulnerable lyrics, to the sweeping melodies, intricate arrangements and lush harmonies, before they are brought to life by her incredible live band.
As a collection of songs, The Skin I Live In—all written, arranged and co-produced by Wylie—explores her relationship with her own mental health from varying perspectives. Whilst the theme has always been present as a topic in Wylie’s material, the new record marks the first time she has been quite so overt about addressing her problems head on. Written in the grip of anxiety, she notes that “writing [the EP] made me feel like I could gain some control over it.”
“I didn’t ever intend to make this a record about my mental health,” she continues, “but quickly realised that that’s what it was becoming and decided to embrace it. I explored my relationship with my mind from varying angles and the impact that it has on me and the people around me.”
