Erin Greider Releases New Song “Pockets”
Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Erin Greider released a new song “Pockets” on January 19, 2024.
The song follows up the 2023 singles “Taurus” and “45 Minutes Without Traffic”.
She worked with her longtime collaborator and producer Topher Mohr on the track.
The song represents her most transparent songwriting with piano based so far, and reveals her diary-esque emotions about a love lost.
“I talk a lot about how hard feelings can be, and 'Pockets' is the first time I'm sincerely admitting that I'm hurt, and I have regrets about not showing someone how I feel,” Erin Greider said of the song. “The line 'should have kept my hands out of my pockets so you could hold them' completely encapsulates that emotion. It's such a simple thing, but admitting that 'I care a lot' can be really terrifying.”
- In reflecting on the production process, she said, “I love how the song builds as I'm pouring more feelings out. My favorite part of the production is during the repeat bridge/outro, where Topher plays these 'guitar-monies,' and the guitars sound like they're crying. I think it's really beautiful, and I'm really proud of how this song turned out and how this story was told.”
