UK’s Self Esteem shares another cut from her forthcoming second album Prioritise Pleasure in the shape of her undeniable new single Moody. The anthemic rhythmic flourishes of funk-pop on Moody are paired with some of her sharpest, wittiest lyricism to date: “sexting you at the mental health talk seems counterproductive…” and has enraptured crowds on its first live outings at UK shows across the summer.
Self Esteem says: “Moody is a song about reclaiming being a moody cow. My whole life I’ve been referred to as mardy (northern for moody) but lately I’ve been realising as a woman in this world, especially as a woman in the music industry, of fucking course I’m moody! It’s such a slog even getting heard, every day shitting yourself about your safety, the societal expectations. I’d love to be sweet and happy go lucky but I’m afraid I’m too tired to be most of the time.”
Self Esteem also announced a brand new run of UK tour dates, set to take place in March 2022. The tour includes six dates across the country, taking in London’s Forum and concludes with a hometown show at Sheffield’s Octagon Centre on 25th March 2022. Presale tickets will be available for 24 hours on 20th September, with general sale on 21st September. Self Esteem will also perform at the Belgrave Music Hall on November 11th 2021, The Leadmill in Sheffield on 12th November 2021 and Leeds Stylus on 2nd March 2022.
