New Zealand pop singer and songwriter Robinson has released her brand new single ‘Medicine’, out now on Ministry Of Sound Records. With over 55 million streams to her name to date and a record which has just gone Platinum in Australia, follow-up ‘Medicine’ is the very highly-anticipated new single from the 22-year-old artist.
The track, co-written by Robinson, is a searingly honest reflection on the pain of heartbreak, and a realisation of the pain caused in past relationships. Robinson says:-
“Medicine is about not realising the weight of your actions and words until it happens to you. It’s about having a taste of your own medicine”.
Continuing her knack for a pop anthem filled with honesty, attitude and melody, ‘Medicine’ follows Robinson’s single ‘Nothing To Regret’ which was released earlier this year to widespread acclaim. NME described the track as “all subtle builds and triumphant climaxes, with a huge, emotive earworm of a chorus…a pop juggernaut” with The 405 dubbing it “an immediate attention-grabber…you will undoubtedly find yourself listening to it on repeat”. Chosen as one of their Next Wave artists, Clash said of Robinson that “her songwriting is remarkably mature, incredibly fresh.” It was championed by Zane Lowe at Beats 1, with further support at BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM. At only 22-years-old, Robinson is one to watch.

LA Women Release ‘I was admiring her through a series of precision cut mirrors’ on Island Records
New Zealand trio LA Women have been quietly building a name for themselves as they released a series of slick, soulful and impressively crafted, RnB infused pop. Following the release of ‘Conscience’ last week; a sultry, blissed out slow jam, LA Women’s today release their highly anticipated debut EP ‘I was admiring her through a series of precision cut mirrors’ and as singer Jake describes “the song is a romanticised reflection of my experience with partying, alcohol, drugs, and all things that take a toll on my ‘conscience’”.
The trio, who hail from the Wairarapa, an area in the deep south of New Zealand, is made up of cousins Jake Schdroski and Zac Emerson and school friend Jesse Brown. They formed in 2016 and released the much hyped ‘Hurricane Love’ the following year, hitting some of the most reputable playlists on Spotify and winning early support from the likes of Complex & MTV, to name a few.
The tracklist for ‘I was admiring her through a series of precision cut mirrors’ is:

The emotional and melodic song highlights Robinson’s ability to create intimate lyrics over catchy melodies, all whilst showcasing her vocal prowess. The track was co-written by Robinson and produced by Sam de Jong (30 Seconds to Mars, Noah Kahan).
Robinson says of the track:
“Don’t Trust Myself’ is about falling too hard, too soon for someone - it’s about the idea of them being etched inside your head making it hard to realise who they truly are and that you can’t trust yourself around them because your heart seems to override your head.’
‘Don’t Trust Myself’ is Robinson’s second release this year, following ‘Nothing to Regret’, which was released in February. The song - called an ‘immediate attention-grabber’ by the 405 - has now amassed over 50 million streams worldwide and has achieved Platinum certification in Australia and Gold in New Zealand. ‘Nothing to Regret’ has also received support from Zane Lowe at Beats 1 as well as Radio 1. At only 21-years-old, Robinson is one to watch.
‘Don’t Trust Myself’ is released ahead of her highly-anticipated debut UK performance at Thousand Island in The Garage, London tonight. For tickets, visit https://myticket.co.uk/artists/robinson.
