Saltwater Sun are previewing their new EP with its title-track, 'The Great Deceiver'

Saltwater Sun have dropped a new track from their upcoming EP.

‘The Great Deceiver' features on their three-track release of the same name, out this Friday, 5th April.

Frontwoman Jen Stearnes reveals: “I wrote this song to my younger self. I always wanted to sing but doubted myself because I hated my appearance and feared it would be scrutinised if I put myself out there.

“We all grow up with unrealistic beauty standards, or expectations of how we should be and that makes me think about all the other people have been held back, or made to feel small or like they don’t have a place by those ridiculous standards and expectations.

“I’ve found confidence over time, but this song services as a little pep talk every now and then, and is here for anyone else who needs it; The Great Deceiver is about finding your voice, not giving in to self doubt and learning to be comfortable in yourself, whoever that is.”

Check out ‘The Great Deceiver' below, and find the band at Live at Leeds, Liverpool Sound City, Truck and more this summer.
