Courtney Barnett will release her follow-up to her acclaimed debut album Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit on the 18th May.

The album is titled Tell Me How You Feel, the first single from it, “Nameless, Faceless” is an infectious indie anthem that simmers with indignation and sarcasm. It examines the phenomenon of incessant and anonymous internet trolls, and every lyric is memorable as Barnett quotes one of the more creative burns she’s received in a comments section, “I could eat a bowl of alphabet soup and spit out better words than you”.

In fact, it would be pure comedy if it didn’t invariably and insidiously cross over into anxiety about ones safety in the real world… illustrated perfectly by the chorus which borrows from a famous Margaret Atwood quote “I want to walk through the park in the dark / Men are scared that women will laugh at them / I want to walk through the park in the dark / Women are scared that men will kill them / I hold my keys between my fingers”.

‘Nameless, Faceless’ is taken from Courtney Barnett’s upcoming album ‘Tell Me How You Really Feel’ out on 18th May 2018. Milk Records
