A couple months ago, e4444e (pron. e4), the moniker of Awabakal/ Newcastle based multi-instrumentalist and producer Romy Church announced the news of his forthcoming album I Spend All Day Drawing A Circle, giving us the first taste with single The Whistler (which you can read more about here). As the album's release draws nearer, the prolific musician reveals another offering; Sunday Taking Me to the Mangroves, a more pop-stylised single with a beautifully candid video to accompany. 

Starting out with just the raw strums of an acoustic guitar and Romy’s crooning vocals, Sunday Taking Me to the Mangroves evolves into a jangly indie-pop tune with the introduction of sparkling synths, grounding bass lines, and the crashes of live drums, before simmering back down to a surreal and calm state. On the release e4444e shares  “I do this a lot now, where a song will have two contrasting sections. Lyrically, the first half feels almost irritated and restless… the second half’s words are inspired by a dream I had, where a cat led me up to this beautiful mangrove-y area. I don’t think of the cat in the song as necessarily the cat in the dream though. The song has a connection to the spirit of ‘Zero’ in a sort of letting go of the world way, giving it up to life’s beauty and warm resonance.”

Accompanied by a wholesome video of Romy and friends having drinks and sharing smokes by the mangroves, be sure to listen and watch e4444e’s Sunday Taking Me to the Mangroves below before the full LP’s release September 30th. 

E4444e’s forthcoming album I Spend All Day Drawing A Circle is out September 30 via Dinosaur City Records.
