NEW ALBUM: BETH MCCARTHY | NO HARD FEELINGS - EP
Global rising star Beth McCarthy has released her brand new EP entitled "No Hard Feelings," which boasts production and co-writing credits from Sophie Ackroyd (Nina Nesbitt, Benjamin Francis Leftwich). The three-track EP which includes the title track "No Hard Feeling, "If You Love Me Right" and "Friendship Bracelet" which showcases her witty, storytelling lyricism stands out as she laments a friendship falling apart through hard-hitting lines and singalong melodies. While break-ups are often characterized in pop culture as hurtful and bitter, "No Hard Feelings" instead navigates the many conflicting emotions that come with the breakdown of a relationship that has simply run its course. Beth Spoke about the title track, saying. “I wanted this song to be the title track of the EP because of the clear irony that a collection of bitter break-up songs would be called ‘No Hard Feelings.’ To me, it’s almost like each song is a snapshot of a different break-up, and the lyric ‘feelings are hard’ from "No Hard Feelings" is ultimately what ties them all together.” Elaborating on the artwork, Beth shares: “The torn up pieces of the artwork stuck back together again continues this theme of fragmented emotions that are all out of place and difficult to figure out. All these different emotions are what makes us human! So when they’re unsettled, it can feel like you’re a broken version of yourself.” Beth McCarthy had an exceptional 2021, accumulating over 9.5 million streams on the three singles she released last year. With huge followings on both TikTok and Instagram, Beth has won the hearts of hundreds of thousands of fans all over the globe. A firm favourite of the Spotify Editorial team, Beth has had her tracks placed on playlists, including "Sad Bops," "Songs to Cry to," and "Sad Songs for Girls."
