SYDNEY, AUS. – In 2020, Imogen Clark turned lemons into lemonade, taking the setbacks of the year in her stride. She released a critically acclaimed EP, performed back-to-back sold-out Sydney launch concerts in September, dropped a nostalgic Christmas single, and wrapped it all up with an epic First Annual Holiday Hootenanny gig with her musical mates – including Montaigne, Jack Moffitt (The Preatures), Lindsay McDougall (Frenzal Rhomb) and more.
In 2021, she’s upping the ante. Imogen returns with ‘Forget About London’, the captivating new tune and lead single from her forthcoming EP, due out later this year. Penned with Melbourne-based singer-songwriter-producer Eilish Gilligan, who also performs backing vocals on the track, ‘Forget About London’ is a Taylor Swift-style breakup banger.
“Written with Australian singer/songwriter Eilish Gilligan, the song hits all the right pop heights as Clark soars above the instrumental on the anthemic chorus. Add in a perfectly placed sax solo, an earworm backing vocal from Gilligan, and a clattering drum pattern from Pete Thomas of Elvis Costello and the Attractions, and “Forget About London” quickly ascends to dizzying pop rock brilliance.” – Under The Radar
“In the middle of last year, I went through a really tough breakup and was stranded in London for the aftermath”, said Imogen. “I got swept up by this guy, I was on the rebound and found myself falling for him, but in the end, he led me on and left me heartbroken.
“I came back to Australia thinking the change of scenery would help me get over it, but I couldn’t escape the now tainted memories of this romance.”
‘Forget About London’ sees Imogen join forces with producer Mike Bloom (Julian Casablancas, Jenny Lewis) and Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Attractions), both of whom she worked with on 2020’s The Making Of Me EP.
