Winter can be tough. Staying indoors for three months (or longer, depending on your latitude) is already a drag, but it can be even worse when you’re searching for warm pockets of air in a drafty house. U.K. artist Rozi Plain fights off the chill on her new song, “Conditions,” the second single from her forthcoming album What A Boost (out April 5th on Memphis Industries).

While the idea for this song sprung from the cold, Plain actually laid down the original recording in sunny Los Angeles while playing bass on tour with This Is The Kit’s Kate Stables, one of her close friends. Plain and Stables share some sonic sensibilities—they both favor airy effects, looped drum beats and whimsical sounds, and they’re also both frequenters of the Bristol music scene. In addition to those collaborations, Plain is also a part of Justin Vernon’s and Aaron Dessner’s PEOPLE collective.

What A Boost is Rozi Plain’s fifth solo effort, following 2016’s Friend of a Friend. “Conditions” follows previously released single “Symmetrical.” The new track is warm, pliable and colorful, even as Plain sings about more frigid forecasts. “When the conditions are right,” Plain sings, “It can be freezing at night.” Here’s what she said about the new tune:

This song is about hunting for drafts in a well insulated house. Searching for the rooftop without any frost on a freezing day. Wondering about the heating situation. Inside feelings. Outside feelings. We recorded the guitar and drums of this song in LA with Chris Cohen on a day off whilst on tour with This Is The Kit. And then spent the next year adding bits here and there. It was a song I tried to record before that needed a bit of a new prism applied to it. Maybe re-recording a song about minus freezing weather in the 35 degree Californian sun was just what it needed. Warm the place up a bit. Gerard Black (from Babe and François & the Atlas Mountains) added his synths in Glasgow and I added quite a bit of Jupiter (that I recently acquired) in London. Alabaster de Plumes saxophone appears right at the end.
