Listen to Thelma Plum's first single in four years, Clumsy Love
The returning single also comes with a bunch of tour dates across August and September.
It's been, release-speaking, a while between drinks for Thelma Plum. Aside from the odd feature here and there, we actually really haven't heard a peep from the acclaimed Australian musician since her 2014 Monsters EP – one that really put her on the musical map after a string of releases in the few years prior. Clumsy Love is her returning single and it's a solid return to form from Plum, whose memorable and definitely missed vocals are in the limelight above a driving instrumental that sits somewhere between the realms of pop and indie, pulsing with this glitzy guitar line and a dark synth backbone.
It also shows a more confident, tall-standing and arguably pop-leaning side of Thelma Plum that we're keen to see a lot more of in 2018, bringing her excellent, already well-established songwriting skills and pairing them with a vocal assurance that really lets her shine on her returning single. "The year just gone has been a really rough one for me and Clumsy Love is my reflections on that," she says on the single. "I have to say I am far happier with the song than with the memories."
