Back in August last year, Atlanta-based artist Becca Harvey (aka girlpuppy) released her exceptional debut EP Swan, turning many heads in the process. The singer-songwriter is back today with a follow-up single and a new album announcement. We couldn’t wait to share the song with you.

On ‘Wish‘ I was thinking about when friends leave your life and you’re not entirely sure why,” Harvey explains. “It’s a pretty universal feeling, I think. And, the thing is—even if you managed to live in the walls of that person’s apartment and were able to figure it out, their reasons might not make total sense. This song is me living with that feeling, when loss just doesn’t quite add up.”

This is the first shoegaze rock song I’ve made and I did that intentionally—the emotions in the song go from anger to sadness to nostalgia and all the other emotions that you feel when you go through a “friend breakup.” I imagined it being really cathartic to play it live.” 

Watch the video for Wish (directed by Matt Swinsky and Eat Humans) in the embed below and keep it locked to her socials for more on the new record. When I’m Alone is out October 28th via Royal Mountain Records.
