Following the worldwide success of her debut LP Sometimes I Sit and Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit Australian indie rock queen COURTNEY BARNETT allowed herself a well deserved time out as she already mentioned one year ago. Thank god, the radio silence didn’t last too long. How To Boil An Egg is a brand new song she’s releasing as part of the Split Singles Club series, a collaboration project between her label Milk! Records and fellow Australian indie Bedroom Suck. However, it turns out that the song isn’t entirely new as she points out:
‘I used to perform this song at all the open-mics when i was 21. It never got recorded, so for personal-posterity I updated it and made this version recently when I was bunkered up in the bush doin some demos for my next album. In tradition of the Milk! Records compilation releases, like ‘Pickles From The Jar’ or ‘Three Packs A Day’, I wanted to include a song of mine for Split Singles Club that was a tad left of album-centre. it’s a songwriting experiment that doesn’t really belong anywhere else.’
It still spreads the kind of COURTNEY BARNETT charm you can’t help but fall in love. Hopefully this is just a first sign of more to come.
