Tina Boonstra Releasing 'Out Of My Depth' From 'City of Doubt' EP

Feb 17 2020

With over a million streams on Spotify, support from BBC introducing and a successful UK tour, indie artist Tina Boonstra returns with the first song from her new EP 'City of Doubt'. The single 'Out Of My Depth' is released on 28th February 2020.

"Out of my depth is about a period in my life when just getting out of the house felt like an insurmountable challenge. I was in a set of circumstances that I felt ill-equipped to deal with and worst of all, I felt like I was dealing with them completely on my own. The light was sucked out of my days and my nights were spent wide-eyed and wired as I tried to figure out my next move."

In this sharp and short first single, snares cut like a knife through the melody as the vocals rise up in protest. Think Sam Fender meets Regina Spektor in this in this crushingly honest rage against the universe, God and insomnia.

The cover art for this new series of songs has been designed by Steve Todd and is inspired by the novel Here I Am by Jonathan Safran Foer.

As a songwriter in a missionary family, Tina expected her songs to find their home in the church halls she grew up in. But it wasn’t until she began performing on the London open mic circuit that she cut her teeth as a performer and honed her craft into a treasure trove of songs with a depth and emotional intensity reminiscent of PJ Harvey, Wolf Alice and John Mark McMillan.

Featured on Spotify's New Music Friday and Mellow Pop playlists, BBC Introducing London, Hoxton Radio and Sounds Magazine, her last EP is described as ‘a collection of moving, honest, brave songs that will school its listeners in empathy and introspection.’ (Get In Her Ears)

Praise for the ‘Underrated Animals’ series

‘A punchy and infectious pop package, tied neatly with her distinct and lavish vocals as the bow on top.’ (Louise Dodgson, Unsigned Guide)

‘A terrific release.’ 10/10. (Never for Nothing)

‘Find you is a confessional song of courageous honesty and heart breaking imagery. A masterly piece of pop art.’ (Listen With Monger)

‘The London based artist is an arch manipulator of minimalist music to create emotional and stirring music that speaks right to your soul.’ (Cross Rhythms)

Praise for 'My Concrete Heart (Will Beat Again)' EP

‘Inspired by the likes of Wolf Alice and Arcade Fire, London-based artist Tina Boonstra writes in a vulnerable, yet determined vein. Her debut EP ‘My Concrete Heart (Will Beat Again)’ - is a collection of moving, honest, brave songs that will school its listeners in empathy and introspection.’ (Get In Her Ears)

‘On the one hand, an earthy folk record basking in melancholy whilst on the other, it takes an alternative rock and indie venture. That the EP blends together these elements so well is the mark of a truly talented artist.’ (Mirrors We Are)

‘A meticulously crafted and developed release and among the best of this year thus far. It's hopefully only a taste of what's to come. With a strong voice and a firm hold of her craft, Tina Boonstra is an artist to watch.’ (A Diverse Sound)

'The open weave and simplicity of the architecture of ‘I Think I See You Now’. surrounding the fragile vocal, which threatens to splinter as it emerges from the speakers, finds the audience hushed in unwavering attention as the emotionally charged composition floats through the room.' (Emerging Indie Bands)
