Ahead of her QLD tour, pop-powerhouse Eves Karydas today shares, Freckles: an intimate, stripped back new single about finding calm in the chaos of your 20s. Freckles premiered on triple j and is available everywhere now.
Of the new single, she shares: “Freckles has been years in the making. It’s a song I started a long, long time ago… it began as a small thought about the rush of growing up and has morphed, over the years, into a real lived experience. Now I’m halfway through my 20s I sing these lyrics earnestly and truthfully.
The catalyst to finally finishing this song was that recently I fell over on the pavement and grazed my knee. I hadn’t done that in a very long time. The context that made this moment poignant to me was that I was confronting my mental health properly for the first time in my life and it was a complicated and scary process. So for some reason, the act of putting on a bandaid and continuing on with my day really struck me. I couldn’t remember the last time getting hurt was so simple.
Freckles is ultimately about finding my safe space in-amongst the chaos of my life. A place where I can tune out all my anxieties and fears. And that place, for me, is with the person I love most in the world.”
Karydas also unveils new details of her upcoming QLD Tour. Due to COVID restrictions easing, early and late sessions have now been combined. Having already SOLD OUT the first Brisbane date, she today announces a new Brisbane show at The Triffid on Wednesday 19 May. Karydas also reveals her supports for the tour: Indie-folk singer/songwriter Greta Stanley will join her in Mackay, Townsville and Cairns, indie-pop band Ivey will play Toowoomba, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane.
