fanclubwallet – “Trying To Be Nice”

Ian Filipovic

Next month, Canada‚Äôs Hannah Judge, aka fanclubwallet, will release her debut album, You Have Got To Be Kidding Me. We’ve heard singles “That I Won’t Do” and “Gr8 Timing!,” and now Judge has shared another cut from the album: “Trying To Be Nice.”

Over propulsive ’80s snare and a bright synth melody, “Trying To Be Nice” is a tight, catchy tune about self-doubt. “‘Trying To Be Nice’ was written over the course of a couple years,” Judge says. “The first half of the song includes lyrics I wrote on the Greyhound to my hometown after deciding to move back home, and the second half was written a few years later in a studio in the woods. Both parts of the song were written at different times when I was feeling really unsure of myself. It’s all about wondering what people think of you and questioning what you think of yourself.”
