Chicago-via-Madison band Slow Pulp presents “Doubt,” the new single from their forthcoming album and ANTI- debut, Yard, out September 29th. Following lead single “Slugs” — which “was made for that hazy and sweet late summer crush” (NYLON) — “Doubt” is taunting and upbeat, a track about begging someone to validate your insecurities.
“In my process to fight against self-deprecation, I found this strange new pattern popping up where I fished for critiques from others,” says lead singer Emily Massey. “I wanted people close to me to validate the things I hated about myself. Self-doubt had found a home in me, it felt safer to stay in this familiar negative space than to like myself. I thought if others shared that with me I wouldn’t have to do the work to change.”
On Yard, Slow Pulp tackles the process of becoming comfortable with yourself — a balancing act with learning to trust, love, and lean on others. Building upon the sticky hooks and dreamy rock seen across their discography, “Doubt” is evident of Slow Pulp aiming bigger than ever before.
