Bethany Ferrie just recently dropped new single, This Is Where I Leave You, which is a song described as full of raw emotions and honesty. The Fountain caught up with Bethany to discuss the track in depth as well as her bigger plans such as EPs and live gigs.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to This is Where I Leave You?
Really positive! In terms of the songwriting, people are picking up on the growth and maturity starting to shine through a little more. I’ve been working really hard on my style and technique and trying to find ways that work for me that I can carry with me. It’s nice to see other people recognising the effort I’m putting into these new songs.
TF: And can you sum up the track in one sentence?
A lot is packed into three and a half minutes.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year?
I’m still working on new stuff to get out there. I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to putting together a song and I really put all of me into it, so it can take some time before I’m completely happy with something. I want these songs to be able to stand on their own but also fit well together in a bigger project like an EP so I’m going for that sometime soon.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
I feel like I’m really out of practice when it comes to performing live in front of people now. It’s been a while since I’ve been in a crowd nevermind in front of one. I love King Tut’s in Glasgow. I feel like the people who go to gigs there are actually interested in the music too. I’ve been wrapped up in a space where I can write and make music and not have to worry about preparing for a gig so I haven’t thought that far yet. Once everything is certain and running again I’ll be happy to play anywhere that takes me.
