Episode 97: Neffy Finds Herself in the Sad Songs

Neffy, aka Mecca Russell, recorded two new songs just a couple weeks after she started writing them. She hasn’t always done things this quickly–her 2016 EP I Don’t Miss You was a longer process–but by laying down these tracks when the songs were so fresh, she aimed to capture intimacy in her new work. In that new work, the New York-based artists finds the themes of her music growing, but the mood–a overwhelmingly somber one–is a consistent home for her songwriting.
