LOUD WOMEN are proud to present the exclusive first view of ‘Terminal 4’. Following her 2016 release Pillow Fort EP, East London-based Gaptooth (aka Hannah Lucy) returns with a new single, the first from her forthcoming second album. ‘Terminal 4’ is an emotive electro-pop track, with a more personal feel than some of her usual politically-charged output.
“The song was inspired by going back to places that have strong feelings attached to them, like the house I grew up in, or visiting cities I used to live in,” says Lucy. “It’s about the idea that as we move through the world we give meaning to the places where we make important memories – even mundane places like street corners and train stations. I liked the idea that we’re continually making a personal map of our emotional lives, and that specific places have the power to take us back in time, whether we like it or not.”
The single was self-produced by Gaptooth and mixed at Dreamtrak Studio in Hackney by Oli Horton, who has previously worked with Foals, Cymbals, Teeth and Chicks On Speed. The animated video for the track was produced by Horrorize Studios, while the B-side features a cover of The Magnetic Fields’ 1991 cult classic ‘100,000 Fireflies’.
Gaptooth will play festivals in the UK this summer, including Something Else Sista Fest in Oxfordshire on 9-11 June, the Matchwomen Fest in London on 1 July and of course LOUD WOMEN Fest in London on 2 September, with more to be announced shortly.
