‘Love her too’ shines a lyrical light on being the other woman

Synth-pop charmer Mardi Lumsden is back, with the release of a darker track, “Love her too”, from her sophomore album Slow Emotion on August 10.

“Love her too” is the intimate story of finding out you are the other woman. It has hints of Phoebe Bridgers and Anna of the North and was written as part of a song-a-week challenge. The stimulus for this track was simply: Kidney.

“I like to do a deep dive when hunting for inspiration and I found that in some ancient texts the kidneys are associated with the innermost feelings and desire but also used as a metaphor for moral discernment,” says Lumsden. “This song explores that desire, consequence and wisdom.”

“Love her too” is the sixth of eight tracks from the album “Slow Emotion”, which traverses disco, indie pop and stargazer anthems written by Lumsden and husband/producer Andrew Pennay and is being released one song at a time and completed by late 2023.

The song “Slow emotion” is a glittering nu-disco gem that was added to Double J in December 2022 and was called “another stellar success” by Obscure Sound.

The track “nineteen” was picked up by several international music blogs and radio including Obscure Sound, POPMUZIK, Illustrate Magazine, It’s all Indie, Existential Magazine, the South Sydney Herald and The MIC. It was also a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition and Unsigned Only Music Competition this year.

The track “Here if you need” is the theme song to a Mamamia podcast of the same name.

Slow Emotion is self-released, self-produced and recorded in Lumsden and Pennay’s Brisbane home (a converted church) with tracks was mixed by UK-based Charlie Holmes (Aurora, Ed Sheeran, Anna of the North) and mastered by Simon Francis (Charlie Puth, Julia Stone, Björk).
