PC Music new(ish)comer felicita has dropped "a new family", the first single from an upcoming EP of the same name.

"a new family" is far removed from the sugar-coated candy-pop that usually wafts from PC Music - instead, we've got a brutal sonic assault closer to HEALTH than Hannah Diamond.

Speaking about the upcoming release felicita says: “During the making of this EP, I spent hours and hours in the studio. By the end of each day my lips would turn a light blue. I lived on dried seaweed, learnt to play the piano, fell deeper into total pop abstraction. I recorded vocals with friends, borrowed riffs from a pro-metal guitarist, spent days editing silence. Matt screams on a new family; Raffy lay in a park wondering what to buy her boyfriend for his birthday in I woke up; Chloe chants, croaks, and gurgles in a way no one else could. Merlin imitated flocks of geese.”

Matt Copson directs the "a new family" video, which is self-styled by felicita.

felicita will appear on PC Music's upcoming Vol. 2 compilation alongside Danny L Harle, Hannah Diamond, and A. G. Cook. felicita signed with the experimental pop collective earlier this year.

felicita's a new family EP is out 21 October via PC Music. Pre-order now.
