Imogen and the Knife has confirmed details of her forthcoming debut EP, Some Kind of Love, and has released the brand new single, "If It Won’t Talk of Rain".

Speaking about the single, Imogen says: “This is essentially a musing on my upbringing as a fiercely proud northerner and musician, what this meant as a young woman choosing to leave home, how I continue to navigate a torn identity, the men in my life and how they’ve shaped me, how I love them, how it’s complicated.

Northerners are rooted in a culture of song and place, and there’s a defiant and bleak romanticism ingrained in us. It has commanded my outlook on life, and this track is an exploration of the spectrum of love, euphoria, pain and torment that comes with it. Ultimately, what use is my voice, as a Northerner, and as a woman, if I’m not exploring all shades of what makes that?”

Described by Imogen as “A carefully woven patchwork of songs from different times and experiences, all unified by their exploration of love in some way or another”, her first extended project Some Kind of Love joins the dots along a jagged line of influences from Kate Bush, Nick Cave, Perfume Genius, PJ Harvey and more. “We’ve crafted a bold, vulnerable and beautiful world and I can’t wait to let people in.”, she notes.
