“Teen coming of age films from the 90s would’ve been made remarkably better with the inclusion of this track. Gloomie cutting straight to those nostalgic shivers.”

“I liked what I’d heard from Casey as part of Goodside. Now as Gloomie she’s seemingly tightened her focus; there’s still that careful balance between happy and sad but the track has this deliberate dreamy slowburn to it that would please any Hatchie fans.”

“This is a sparkling fuzzy heartmelter – that melody is so warm and uplifting. Really dig the fullness of this recording and dreamy delivery.”

Casey cemented herself in the local Sydney scene opening for the likes of Julia Jacklin fronted Phantastic Ferniture, The Buoys and Big White.
Gloomie’s infectious debut, ‘Dilemma’ featuring Slowcoaching, has already landed her rave reviews from Triple J presenters, air time on FBi Radio, Triple J and Unearthed Radio and an array of editorial playlisting across Spotify, Apple and Tiktok.
Crafting a warm and hazy sound, cut by the fuzziness of a striking guitar riff, Gloomie’s second single, ‘Every Time I Leave’ is a realisation that you can’t physically run from your problems. The track see’s Gloomie collaborate once again with cousin and producer Simon Dobson (Little May, Rum Jungle, The Flowers and Bootleg Rascal) and features performance contributions from Jacob Borg of Jinja Safari.
On the track Gloomie explains;
“The song is about trying to physically run away from myself – I wrote it when I realised that I had been projecting my pain onto external things. It marks a pivotal point in my life and a big step towards healing and personal growth. I hope that in some way it will bring comfort to others.”
‘Every Time I Leave’ premiered on FBi Radio last night and is out now via Community Music. The release is accompanied by a self directed, DIY music video featuring her dog, June.
“Involving my dog, June in the visual seemed apt – the song explores mental health themes and she is the reason I’m okay today. I hope she makes other people smile too.”
Gloomie will launch ‘Every Time I Leave’ at Petersham Bowling Club (Sydney) on the 3rd of Dec for a 90’s prom-esque experience with supports from Sydney sweethearts Motion Sickness and Central Coast dream pop outfit Sunday Mail.
