Hey Mr Cowboy is an eerie, atmospheric and affecting track, full of swelling tremolo guitars and somber percussion, carrying Charlotte’s fierce, storytelling vocals. The ‘Shelter’ EP is released on 20th October, 2017 via Let It Go Records on Limited Edition 10″ vinyl.

“This is the very first song I’ve written which isn’t about myself or ended up being, subconsciously,” analyses Charlotte. “I watched a friend of mine, invest so much energy into a partner that wasn’t at all good for her and I could see her slowly losing herself. It’s a warning song, a siren and a reminder of how important it is to make sure we find the time and have the energy to always take care of and love ourselves, ultimately above or before anybody else.”
