Carla Geneve is a singer songwriter from Perth, Western Australia, Her new album will also include previous singles ‘Don’t Wanna Be Your Lover’ and ‘The Right Reasons’, both of which were released last year. In an additional statement, Geneve described the album as “very much a way for me to make sense of and explain my emotions to myself”. “These songs came at a time that I was coming to terms with the positives and negatives of medication, as well as the reality of having to gather the mental strength to push through hardship,” she explained.

The new track, ‘Dog Eared’, is a scorching rock number inspired by the enthusiasm of Geneve’s music students.

“I was driving home one night and I felt so excited and full of energy for music, and I guess life in general. I didn’t really know why but I realised it was because I had been in a room of teenagers playing music with the pure, raw emotion that most people grow out of as you enter adulthood,” Geneve said in a statement. “I had taken some of that recklessness and it felt incredibly nostalgic. I dictated the words to ‘Dog Eared’ into my phone. It took me a while to finish the music because I really wanted to get it moving a bit more than my other songs. Capture a bit of that violence that I mostly stay away from on this record.” “Dog Eared” is a crushing piece of rock that sits in perfect contrast to recent single, “The Right Reasons”.

Geneve crafted “Learn To Like It” over a couple of years in between prolific touring and a period that was marked by adolescence, heartache and coming to terms with mental illness. The 22-year old says writing the largely biographical record was a method of processing and finding strength through vulnerability, saying it was “very much a way for me to make sense of and explain my emotions to myself.”

“These songs came at a time that I was coming to terms with the positives and negatives of medication, as well as the reality of having to gather the mental strength to push through hardship.”
