The album is very much a statement on the turbulence of human existence, written from Ebba's experience of being bipolar. With their clarity in emotion and unapologetic use of lyrics, it's an important record in more ways than one. She explains, "'Softie' is an attempt at proving there is more than one way of being a functioning human being. The album is about coping, growing out of your fears, learning how to distance yourself from your anxieties."
Wy are longtime lovers Ebba and Michel, from Malmö in Sweden. After several years of playing in bands together, they formed this musical incarnation in 2015 and soon released their debut EP 'Never Was' (2016). Their 10-track LP 'Okay' (2018), saw them win fans at international tastemaker titles The Line of Best Fit, NYLON, C-Heads, KALTBLUT, NBHAP and The Revue, and has paved the way for breaking new ground and universal recognition in 2019.
