Irish alt-pop artist April shares bouncy new single Someone That I Made

The retro-inspired track was produced by Rina Sawayama collaborator Clarence Clarity.

Irish alt-pop artist April has dropped a bouncy new single called Someone That I Made.

Produced by Clarence Clarity (known for his work with Japanese-British pop star Rina Sawayama), the track comes accompanied by a self-directed music video. 

Born in County Kildare but now splitting time between Ireland and London, 22 year old April recently signed a record deal with Atlantic Records, also home to artists such as Ed Sheeran, Charli XCX and Lizzo.

Speaking on her new single, April said: "Someone That I Made is about being away from comfort and missing family and safe familiar places, it’s about growing up and realizing everything you need is already there no matter where you go.

"Clarence Clarity sent me a little loop, and I wrote the entire song in my old room in London. Clarence then fleshed out the music so that the entire song was made without ever having met each other in real life."

April previously released two EPs in 2020, experiencing a viral breakthrough with her tracks just as lockdown hit. 

Now signed to Atlantic, her new music is apparently inspired by the likes of Charli XCX and FKA twigs, and she was most recently featured on BBC Sound Of...finalist Alfie Templeman's track One More Day.
