“Romantic Notions is the new studio album from Sydney’s MERE WOMEN, the follow up to their critically acclaimed ‘Big Skies’ album.
Led by the title track ‘Romantic Notions’, Mere Women’s latest long player is pensive, profound and at once ostensibly urgent and unnerving, ‘Romantic Notions’ captures the overwhelming intensity of obsessive love and control while sharing often-uncomfortable truths relating to women’s lived experiences; a ubiquitous theme throughout the Mere Women catalogue.
Romantic Notions was written and rehearsed in a riverside cottage in Sydney and later recorded with Tim G Carr at One Flight Up studios in March, on the cusp of lockdown. The foreboding threat of lockdown left a peculiar feeling throughout the recording process, filling the air with a tremendous sense of uncertainty and giving the overall process an unusual edge.” – Poison City
