Today our favourite bisexual badass, Donna Missal, has dropped another tune as the wait is nearly over for album number two.
Donna’s self-proclaimed “feminist stripper music” shows no signs of slowing down, even in the midst of a global pandemic. Now delivering a slice of luscious shoe gaze, How Does It Feel follows Let You Let Me Down and Hurt You as the third track to be lifted form her highly-anticipated second album Lighter, due for release 10 July.
Arriving as the follow-up to her debut album This Time, Lighter is inspired by the maverick album artists of the 90s and is all about fragility, self-acceptance and self-discovery. With the combination of her unique gonna fide lyrics and a free-wheeling spirit, this record sees Donna at her most defiant and honest.
Talking about the album’s title, Donna says it: “represents the concept of burning shit down all around you and rising from the ashes.” It’s been an uncertain experience to hunt for the tales she wanted to share, but Donna finally knows what kind of voice she is and through writing about the process of heartbreak and destruction she’s now more firmly in the driving seat than ever.
