Now Playing: BATTS – 'Gun’

Thursday, August 30, 2018

Melbourne-based songwriter and musician BATTS has unveiled one of her most expressive songs yet with 'Gun'. BATTS has been extremely busy in recent times, having signed to THAA Records, playing shows extensively whilst also finding time to write new music.

'Gun' is based on a story that she crafted about fictional characters — in a statement, she says "I wasn’t feeling inspired by my own life, and didn’t feel any urge to become self-destructive like I had in younger years to create".  The track's words flow like a lulling stream of water and you can't help but feel every word, just as you would with a novel. BATTS is a mesmeric storyteller and her ability to drawn listeners into a narrative is unique.

BATTS is currently in the process of working on her debut album, which will be released early next year.
