Returning to build upon a strong introduction made in June, indie rock group Cheap Date serves up a stunning new single, ‘Woman To You’. Gorgeously layered, balancing light and shaded tones with ease, ‘Woman To You’ is a perfect way for the Brisbane group to take another stride forward in making their presence known to more fans.
The track is dreamy in that Hatchie, Julia Jacklin way; while the production and warm ambience the music conjures gives us beautiful ‘90s soft rock-pop energy.
Like their debut single ‘Beside Me’, ‘Woman To You’ is emotionally charged; the lyrics offer an insight into a perspective many listeners may be able to relate to.
“‘Woman To You’ is a song that I wrote as a way to express and come to terms with my sexuality as a young adult. I had spent my whole teenage life convinced that I would grow up, get a job, find a husband, build that white picket fence and have kids. ‘Beside Me’ was written about the last real relationship I had with a man before coming out as bisexual. This song is the follow up to that. It is really an expression of obsession. Which sounds a bit creepy….but I mean it in the most innocent way. I was suddenly allowing myself to feel and think about women in a way that felt natural and inherently like my true self.”
