The new track is taken from upcoming EP The Soul, due out 22 June. It sees Starling exploring a sound not dissimilar to Kate Miller-Heidke, Ingrid Michaelson, or early Marina and the Diamonds, with sweetly operatic vocals that twinkle over a sparse, elastic arrangement.

Starling's lyrics provide a glimpse into some inverted wonderland; pulling fairytale metaphors into her everyday narrative, as she dances on the knife-edge of tweeness – somehow turning anything close to cliché inside-out in an exciting reinvention. Keeping things choppy and brisk, Starling fleshes out the familiar pop form in a hypnotically simple way that's nonetheless enjoyable.

Catch Starling at London's Waiting Room on 26 September.
