"Got my heart broken. Wrote a song," is the summation of Liverpool alt-pop artist Michael Aldag on his new single ‘Divorce', the follow up to last November's ‘Conversation’ for the 19-year-old.
You can feel the emotion seeping through the heartstrings-puller track, that belies his years.
“‘Divorce’ is a hurt-driven song which doesn’t pull any punches," he says. "I heard Phoebe Bridgers say ’I hate your mum, I hate it when she opens her mouth…’ and thought ‘Oh cool, so nothing is off-limits’. When you get treated badly by someone you’ve got options: sleep with their friend, drunk text or write a cutting song. I chose the latter.”
