“Lemon Eyes” recently premiered on Stereogum and is currently streaming on Myers’ official YouTube channel. The powerful new single is receiving wide critical acclaim with Consequence of Sound praising the track as “intoxicating, fearless, and her most promising one yet”.
Meanwhile, “Sorry” – the album’s title track – hit top 15 at Alternative radio, marking Myers’ second consecutive top 20 track at the format. The single’s companion video – directed by Andrew Donaho (Jack Garratt, Raury) – now has over 1.6 million views and counting at Myers’ official YouTube channel.
Acclaimed as a provocative and dynamic live act, Myers spent much of the next year on the road, headlining clubs, supporting such artists as Royal Blood, Broods, and Pixies, and stealing the show at an array of top festivals. Rolling Stone praised Myers as one of the “Best Things We Saw At Lollapalooza,” while the New York Times applauded her set at NYC’s Governors Ball for its “seething hard-rock riffs like early P.J. Harvey” and Myers’ “imprecations at the destructive power of love and desire.”
