BANNERS Releases New EP “I Wish I Was Flawless, I'm Not”: Streaming
British singer-songwriter Michael Nelson, aka BANNERS released a new EP “I Wish I Was Flawless, I'm Not” along with a new music video for “In Your Universe” on January 13, 2023.
The EP is his first project in two years since the 2021 EP “It's Gonna Be OK”.
The EP comprises 6-track, produced by Cam Blackwood and Lorna Blackwood.
Michael Nelson said of the EP, “I experienced the pandemic mainly on my own and I spent quite a lot of that tearing myself apart in front of the mirror. I think, during that time, everybody's trauma surfaced in unexpected ways, and this was the way my brain decided to do it. This EP is a mini celebration of me coming out the other side and being at peace with my imperfections. And being much happier because of that.”
- He explained some track for the EP.
“I wanted to write a song about how our imperfections are what make us interesting. How other people's imperfections are what make them interesting and when our jagged edges fit into their jagged edges, that's when we fall in love.”
“Keeps Me Going”
"'Keeps Me Going' is a shout-out to the people you know you can always rely on. The people that understand your ups and downs and are gonna be there no matter what."
“In Your Universe”
"In Your Universe. I think this song sounds like falling in love. The explosion of it. Feeling like the universe has created this beautiful thing for you and all you'll ever need is to be somewhere in that atmosphere."
“This is a song for the people that make your day just by being around. The ones that make life worth living and make you happier to be you. A song for the people that make everything better. It's also got a swear word in it which proves, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that I'm cool.”
“Happier is about that heartbreaking moment in a relationship where you go from knowing in your heart that you two are perfect for another to feeling like maybe you're not.”
