Liz Cass Confesses All On ‘Near Miss’

"The song shows a different side to me..."

London pop figure Liz Cass is an over-sharer.

Someone who pours every ounce of her soul into her music, incoming debut album ‘The Words’ finally affords Liz Cass a broader landscape to work with.

Out on October 21st, it’s led by new piledriver ‘Near Miss’, an alt-pop statement that delves into her thoughts on relationship.

Refined, finessed electronic pop, ‘Near Miss’ is “about not wanting to give up on someone when they can’t figure out what they really want. When you’re not ready to let go but have that need to be able to look back and say you gave it everything you had.”

Brisk of vocal and buoyant of chorus, ‘Near Miss’ is a deliberate attempt to re-shape the narrative around Liz Cass’ work As she puts it: “The song shows a different side to me and comes from a less melancholic place. I was in a better headspace when I wrote ‘Near Miss’ and wanted to reflect that with some really uplifting pop. There’s no more wallowing from me… At least for a while!”

A jewel of a single, we’re able to share the Conrad Gamble directed video, which takes you around the singer’s favourite East London haunts.

Catch Liz Cass at London’s Laylow on September 10th.
