Laura Groves has unveiled new single "Foolish Game" as the second preview of her upcoming EP A Private Road.
"Foolish Game" lands after last month's lead single and EP opener "Infinite Wisdom", and is accompanied by a visual directed by RedChartreuse.
Groves says of the new song, ""Foolish Game" is a song about the tension between the thrill and the hurt of a situation you can’t seem to let go of - the harshness and tenderness of submission to the same pattern even though we know it may be bad for us, and the strength that can come from becoming aware and taking control. I wanted to evoke the feeling of a slow dance at the end of a night and the thoughts that might go through your head on the journey home afterwards."
A Private Road will be Groves' first collection of tracks since her 2015 EP Committed Language.
Groves says of the upcoming EP, "This record, made mostly on my own, became both a channel for the expression of an inner world and an imagined soundtrack to my physical journeys through the city. It is rooted in the stories, atmospheres, mistakes and wrong turns, desires and layers of meaning that run through and play out in the landscapes we inhabit. The songs are snapshots of late night journeys across the river, the sparks of love that transform us and keep us going, the dead ends that the mind can lead us down, the erotic, the visible and invisible places we pass through as they merge and are erased and overwritten. The ability and opportunity to create and connect through music is a gift and I’m so happy to be able to share these new explorations with you."
