It’s the successor to the 2019 debut IDER record, Emotional Education.
Megan Markwick and Lily Somerville have unveiled their new IDER album ‘shame’.
The LP started life in Berlin, but progress stalled as the pandemic took hold; “We got there, and we got COVID four weeks later,” the duo reveal.
“We had three weeks of heaven where we wrote so much new music and it was everything we dreamed of, living that chaotic, no-routine lifestyle.”
“We Thelma and Louised it back, because the messaging at the time was, ‘If you don’t come back to London now, you never will’.”
Ahead of a confirmed release date, the album is being previewed with Cross Yourself, which they say is, ‘a reflection on how we search for purpose – how we often attach meaning to things or like the idea of something external to believe in, in exchange for believing in ourselves’.
