Faye Webster returns with the dreamy lament of "Better Distractions"

17 September 2020, 09:30 | Written by Kayleigh Watson

Following the release of her previous single "In A Good Way", Atlantan artist Faye Webster shares her new release "Better Distractions". The track comes with the announcement of her upcoming livestream ‘Live From Chase Park Transduction’.

Atlanta, Georgia has long been a thriving melting pot of musicians, crossing a multitude of genres and affinities. Well into establishing herself as an artist worth investing one’s time and attention, Secretly Canadian signing Faye Webster again returns with another stunning chapter.

Following in the wake of her 2019 album Atlanta Millionaires Club and this year’s recent single “In A Good Way”, new outing “Better Distractions” is an intimate musing on the thought of Webster allowing life to pass her by. Dreamy pedal steel echoes across sullen basslines and drum patters, her soft vocal murmuring along the song’s laidback melody.

But what of life is passing when one has achieved their own definition of success whilst not perhaps “ticking the boxes”? “Got two friends that I could see / but they got two jobs and a baby,” she reflects on others who are at a different stage of their paths. “I just want to see you”. Despite fearing missing out, Webster still sounds as if she is living her ideal.

“I wrote this song kinda without knowing I was writing it,” shares Webster of her new track. “It’s a kind of free association, just thoughts running straight from my head onto paper untouched. I also think it’s best my band has ever sounded on record.”

"Better Distractions" is available now via Secretly Canadian. Follow Faye Webster on Instagram. Watch her Noonchorus livestream ‘Live From Chase Park Transduction’ on 6 October.
