It begins with Imogen Clark having her long hair cut off and ends with her taking a baseball bat to all the props on her set. ‘Forget About London’ might just be the most relatable heartbreak clip ever.

‘Forget About London’ is the NSW artist’s lead single from her forthcoming EP, due out later this year. The EP follows last year’s six-track EP The Making Of Me, which this journalist gave 4.5 Stars in Rolling Stone Australia magazine.

Featuring the lyric “You can always count on being let down” over fierce, blazingly honest vocals, you can hear Clark’s anguish throughout the entire track, solidified from unfulfilled promises.

“In the middle of last year, I went through a really tough breakup and was stranded in London for the aftermath,” said Clark. “I got swept up by this guy, I was on the rebound and found myself falling for him, but in the end, he led me on and left me heartbroken.

“I came back to Australia thinking the change of scenery would help me get over it, but I couldn’t escape the now tainted memories of this romance,” she added.

The single was written with Melbourne-based singer-songwriter-producer Eilish Gilligan, who also performs backing vocals on the track, and produced with Mike Bloom (Julian Casablancas, Jenny Lewis) and Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Attractions) – both of whom she worked with on The Making Of Me EP.

Imogen Clark returned to Australia in the midst of the current pandemic last year, but she set to work straight away. From socially-distanced EP launch shows and the First Annual Holiday Hootenanny gig with her musical mates – including Montaigne, Jack Moffitt (The Preatures), Lindsay McDougall (Frenzal Rhomb) – Clark made sure to use her talents to bring the music community together.
