Jilian Medford’s IAN SWEET project works up to the releaseof her third album, ‘Show Me How You Disappear’ – out March 5 via Polyvinyl – with a new song from it, ‘Drink The Lake’.
“This is the first record that I leave that space for myself,” says Medford of the new album. “I feel a freedom on this one that I haven’t felt with the others. People always say ‘I put all of me into this,’ but I actually didn’t this time – I left space.”
On ‘Drink The Lake’ she adds it “taps into my own twisted logic to try to break away from obsessive thought patterns. It turned into a pop anthem of seemingly silly ways to try to forget someone, like saying their name backward, but I feel these devices contributed to my healing.”
