Pollyanna have released another taste of their upcoming album, Slime in the form of their new single, “Relationship Anxiety” today. The vulnerable, energetic new track finds the band facing down their own anxieties and follows previous tracks, “SLUT,” “Mars,” and “Pathetic.” Listen to it now below.
Slime is available to pre-save/pre-order ahead of its June 17th release now HERE.
On the new single, vocalist Jill Beckett (she/they) shares, “’Relationship Anxiety’ is definitely a telling title for what it’s about, but this song actually goes in depth for so much more. For most of my life, I constantly felt anxious at the thought of going into a relationship means you have to make sacrifices to have it work and you can’t ever think about anyone romantically or physically ever again. And that was a constant fear of mine. Not only that but we put so much expectations on ourselves, of when we should be single and when we shouldn’t. For awhile, I had so much fear of going into a relationship because I thought my lifestyle would have to change and I thought that this period of time I should remain single which is in my opinion a false narrative to have. This song is basically about coming to terms with being polyamorous and being able to feel love for multiple people while also having an anxiety that because of that, I would never be in a happy relationship with someone.”
Fans can expect more music soon, and look forward to seeing new songs live later this year as Pollyanna hits the road with Forever Came Calling. All tour dates are below.
