Today, Dundee-based singer / song-writer Theo Bleak has shared her new single, ‘I Look Like A Fool To You’, the second to be taken from her upcoming EP, Pain, which is set for release on October 31st. The single arrives as a follow-up to the recently released ‘It’s Not Doing Me Any Good’, and her Iliad EP – which was released in March.
Of the track, Theo states:
This is a love song for someone who thinks I’m a fucking idiot
She continues about the EP, ‘I guess I’m back with another enquiry of my life, why the deep well of sadness only gets deeper and why having ‘feelings’ for others brought out the worst in me. I’m sorry.’ She continues, ‘I consider my past boyfriends, fictional pillars of love like Mr Darcy, a girl who thinks I wanted her boyfriend when really I wanted her, emotional instability and pain. I don’t just touch on romantic relationships, I consider how fucked my perception of men is, generally. I am afraid of men and I wrote about why. I made myself incredibly unwell creating this EP.”
Already, Theo Bleak has supported the likes of Suede, Josef and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, alongside playing at All Points East this Summer. With 3 EP’s under her belt already, Pain continues to display Theo Bleak as one of alternative’s most endearing acts. This November, Theo heads out on tour, visiting Manchester, London and her hometown of Dundee, whilst also visiting Glasgow to support Lucia & The Best Boys.
