Slaney Bay Explore Love and Loss in New EP Release
London’s emerging indie band, Slaney Bay, has released their latest emotive EP, Why Does Love Mean Loss?. After a summer packed with applauded performances across the UK festival scene, such as The Great Escape and Dot To Dot, the harmonious trio are preparing for a bigger fall season as they headline their hometown for the first time.
Why Does Love Mean Loss? EP features their previous, standout, singles, “The Fall,” “Move On,” and “EST,” which have all received huge critical support, with notable mentions in Billboard and The Independent, alongside substantial airplay on BBC’s renowned stations, Radio 1 and 6 Music.
Speaking about the essence of the EP, the group’s frontwoman, Cait Whitley, remarked, “‘Why Does Love Mean Loss?’ explores the interconnectivity between love and loss. Without loss, love wouldn’t be as meaningful. Without love, loss wouldn’t be as painful. Their existence strengthens each other. We have a tendency to try and avoid the hurt, internally questioning ‘Why Does Love Mean Loss?’. Why can’t I just have love without the pain? Is it even still worth it? The tracklist examines all forms of love and loss. Building from a loved one moving away in ‘EST’, to the loss of motivation in ‘The Fall’, and crescendoing on the most painful scenario – love and loss battling for dominance in the experience of grief (“Family Tree”)”.
