FULL CIRCLE (PART 1)
ABOUT THE EP
TRACK 1: MOTHER. SISTER. LOVER.
About the track
MOTHER. SISTER. LOVER. - Megan's 'feminist pop rock anthem' invites us into a world full of power and a calling for change. Featuring female-identifying and non-binary creatives, this track represents a movement of coming together to showcase the undeniable power our vulnerability holds.
When asked about the track in interviews, Megan has said, 'we're always taught there's a competition. There's only ever one spot, one opportunity. We have to be prettier, sexier, smarter, funnier. We have to do it all and I'm exhausted. What better way to flip that idea on it's head than to have us all standing together in unity creating iconic rock music with our fists up in the air?'

TRACK 2: JUST FOR FUN
When asked about the song, Megan said 'I wanted to be as honest as I could be. A lot of my unhealthy habits revolve around things society considers 'fun'. It's strange how some things are completely normalized and others aren't. I want to start a conversation. Mental health impacts so many of us and we need to create a safe space - mine is through music'.
TRACK 3: FUCK YOU (YOU STOLE MY YOUTH)
Fuck You (You Stole My Youth) is Megan's ode to the 'Me Too' Movement originally founded by Tarana Burke. Speaking on the track she states 'the 'Me Too' movement and the space that has created for so many people is something I'm so thankful for. I am fortunate enough that I have the space and the privilege to speak up - I want to use that wisely. I wanted to reflect on the joy that is stolen. I got tired of dealing with the consequences of someone else's actions'.

TRACK 4: ME VS MOTHER NATURE
The final track from Megan Black's EP 'Full Circle (Part 1)' focuses on the climate crisis and Megan's own fears about what's to come. 'Maybe I'll just be her observer, because Mother Nature, you know we never deserved her'.
'This song is all about raising awareness' Megan adds, 'I really struggle with the state of the planet and destruction being caused. I think this song is my way of telling other people it's really okay to find this stressful and feel helpless. I hope to raise awareness on changes, big or small, we can all make'.
