After her latest great hits like ‘My People‘ and ‘Over & Over‘, MANE is back with her brand new EP ‘Coping Mechanisms‘
The new EP ‘Coping Mechanisms‘ is more than a new chapter for MANE. It is a reflective collection of music that shows her ability to become inspired and creative again after navigating some heavy times outside of music. As such, Coping Mechanisms is just that; an exploration of how to come out the other side with the potential to be stronger than before.
MANE shares about the new EP “Coping Mechanisms follows the journey of trying times, mental health, and the moments of strength in between. It’s a reminder to myself and to anyone else going through something difficult that we all have the strength in us to overcome hard times and welcome personal growth. I’ve always inherently felt things very deeply and fortunately for the better part of the last 10 years I’ve been able to have an outlet for that in my music – hence the EP title ‘Coping Mechanisms’. I’m so proud of this body of work and I can only hope that it can resonate and help those travelling through a similar chapter of their life”
The new EP features a six-track record shines in texture and sonic twists and turns. Her latest single ‘Over & Over’ is a moment of strength; the builds and MANE’s vocals building akin to London Grammar. Then you have songs like ‘Start Again’ and ‘Fucking Around’, each example of the EP’s richness and depth in sound.
MANE explains of her collaboration with Joel Quartermain, ‘Hold’, she knows herself much better now and treats her capabilities with renewed confidence. “I’ve come to know what I am and am not capable of when I’ve stretched myself thin and despite not wanting to take a break, I’m aware of when it’s in my best interest. I think it’s important to understand that opportunities and people may not hang around for you in those moments, but accepting that and knowing it was the best decision for YOU at the time.”
