Denai Moore is pleased to share with you her exceptional and healing sophomore record We Used To Bloom, through Because Music. The album is a declaration of growth, a break-up letter to her demons and a love letter to the liberated self.
We Used To Bloom features acclaimed singles; ‘Trickle’ and ‘Does It Get Easier?’ plus the recently unveiled album track ‘All The Way’ feat. Kwabs. The album also features a sumptuous cover of Elliott Smith’s ‘Twilight’ within which Denai reveals a new depth to the song, through spacious production and the fragile strength of her voice.
The last couple of years have provided an intense and sometimes painful period of growth for Moore — an experience that she documents now with unflinching openness. The album reveals a young woman figuring out the world and her place in it, while also charting Moore’s evolving relationship with herself — with self-esteem, self-image and the crippling anxiety she once suffered and is now challenging head on through her songwriting. “I’ve never written about this before and it was a massive weight off my shoulders,” she says. “I’ve always wanted to write about it, and I think a lot of people can relate to it because people are more open now about mental health issues. I think it is empowering.” But she sings too of the triumph of this experience. On the sublime album opener ‘Let It Happen’ she’s revelling in “a celebration of myself” calling the song “a self-love anthem”.
Denai Moore plays The Sunflower Lounge Birmingham on Mon 2nd Oct 2017. Tickets available here.
