Belfast band New Pagans are back with brand new music following the success of their latest EP Glacial Erratic, and have shared the powerful new track ‘Yellow Room’.
The band use their creative influence to challenge past and present issues surrounding relationships, equality, history, and gender, all wrapped up in their alternative, post-punk, indie rock style. With ‘Yellow Room’ the band tackle another important topic surrounding the issue of motherhood within the music industry and the lack of support for women with perinatal mental health needs, particularly in Northern Ireland.
This often-muted subject is something that personally hits home with lead singer and lyricist Lyndsey McDougall who is a mother herself. The track is based on the short story ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ by American writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, which is celebrated as an important piece of early American feminist literature.
