piglet, Jemima Coulter Collaborate On ‘panic’

A song that explores the limits of friendship...

piglet and Jemima Coulter join forces on new song ‘panic’.

Out now via tastemaker imprint Blue Flowers, the single joins together two wonderful, totally unique talents. piglet – an Irish born artist in London – links to Bristol’s own Jemima Coulter, for a song that explores friendship, and asks where the lines should be drawn.

‘panic’ is about the interplay between community, and the need for solitary spaces; it explores where care ends, and accountability starts.

It’s also a slender indie pop ear-worm, the kind of thing both parties have made their own. For his part, piglet comments:

“‘panic’ is about realising a friendship has swayed too far into manipulation and lies to be recoverable. The song discusses the search for meaning amongst this realisation and the conclusion that the person’s actions are an echo of how they have been treated and a reflection of a society which rejects the value of care rather than a personal failing. It’s been a real honour and very good craic working with Jem, and the song feels like a really nice blend of what we both do.”

Jemima Coulter adds: “In community, we always hope to show up as family for each other, unconditionally supportive and understanding. The hard part is when it starts to feel one-sided or harmful somehow – how far can we support people without it negatively impacting our own lives? At what point is leaving people to be responsible for themselves a good thing and at what point is it abandonment?”

Tune in now.
