"cbb to b sad" is the fourth song to be shared from IDER's shame album, following earlier outings "obsessed", "BORED" and "Cross Yourself", and lands days ahead of shame, which will drop on Friday (6 August).
IDER say of the new track, which was written in Berlin and co-produced with heck in London, ""cbb to b sad" celebrates the universal feeling of ‘the ick’. It’s a confession to staying in a relationship that you know isn’t right for you because you don’t want to deal with the inevitable sadness that comes with ending it. We’ve both been there and have seen so many friends go through it too, so thought there should be a song to honour this feeling!"
IDER, aka Megan Markwick and Lily Somerville, say of the process, "We got there, and we got COVID four weeks later. We had three weeks of heaven where we wrote so much new music and it was everything we dreamed of, living that chaotic, no-routine lifestyle. We Thelma and Louised it back, because the messaging at the time was "if you don’t come back to London now, you never will.""
