Mousey has said that (first album) Lemon Law was about feeling like a let-down, while My Friends is about being let down, but being loved. Digging a little deeper, it’s apparent that it was right in front of us the whole time. “It is all in the title,” says Mousey. “It was about that year I was writing the record, and my relationships during that year. That involved being loved, and self-talking myself into believing that I'm loved, to really not being loved by some people. There are two sides to the album - a light and a dark side.”
Sharing deep emotions like we hear in this album comes naturally to Mousey, but others weren’t quite so used to her being an open book.
“People would say ‘thank you for sharing, you're so vulnerable, and that's so amazing that you can just share’. I just didn’t even know what being vulnerable was. I didn't feel like I was being brave, I just felt like I was being honest. I feel like as I'm getting older, it's getting a little harder to share, but I just want to fight that urge. Especially with my artistry, I want to be able to share anything.”
That said, she’s planning to sleep with one eye open when My Friends is released. “I can see some of the songs from this new album coming to slap me in the face when I release them. So, we'll see what happens!”
