Newcomer Bristolian singer-songwriter Clara Mann has released her new single, Thoughtless.
This track follows the success of Clara’s debut Spotify release, single I Didn’t Know You Were Leaving Today, with the track being Single of the Week from both Secret Meeting and Words For Music.
This debut release followed a multitude of lo-fi demos on bandcamp. Whilst nodding towards the sounds of other contemporaries like Shannon Lay and Dana Gavanski, Clara is paying respects to the folk foundations laid by Connie Converse and Molly Drake.
The new single welcomes listeners to her delicately bittersweet world, weaving intricate words into her wistful soundscapes, sweetened by the warm of the fiddle and harmonium.
“Thoughtless reflects on the fragility of boundaries, allowing people to take too much of you, and your own vulnerability disallowing you to remove yourself from these destructive situations,” says Clara.
"I wrote this over a summer where I was totally adrift; it was quite a lonely time, and I felt that, in a bid for some kind of connection, I was making myself vulnerable to the wrong people. Thoughtless is a recognition of that unhealthy tendency in myself, as well as being about the way people can take too much of someone, without even realising.”
