Friday May 26, will see Haines hit Hyde Park Book Club for the launch, with support from Tamzene and Sam Wilde.
When talking about the upcoming EP Haines said: “I’m so excited to release it.
“I wrote all the songs alone but my band had a huge influence on how they’ve been shaped which has been a really fun process.”
This is Haines’ biggest release to date, when talking about the process of creating the EP she tells: “I’ve learned about self-releasing from putting two singles together already and feel ready for a bigger release now.”
