With its “cavalier fancy pants,” “Tiny Anchor”—Le Fomo’s second single of 2020 out September 25 on Swallow Me Whole via Club Queen and AnalogueTrash—delivers a punchy mix of ’80s and ’90s nostalgia.
Kai’s signature guitar hooks right from the beginning, launching into Ess’ rich and punchy vocal delivery. It’s pop; it’s punk; it’s new wave, and you won’t want to miss this one.
“Tiny Anchor is a song about navigating intimacy,” the band explains. “It can be hard to see that someone loves/likes you when your traumatic/fear based thinking patterns get in the way. An interaction can easily feel like rejection when we’re on high alert. It‘ll send us off spinning. I like to ‘throw a tiny anchor’ to slow things down, to take some emotional space to understand what’s happening without tanking the whole ship, and course correcting if needed.
“I can also really get pulled under by my patterns, and that’s when I call upon resources to help me find me way out—such as a love-enveloping Sea Dragon Goddexx to surround me and lift the veil from my heart and eyes. Or— in some cases—to affirm that my fear is there for a good reason, and I should listen to it. It can be hard to know what’s going on. This song is part of my process of figuring it all out.”
