Having already laid strong foundations throughout 2020 with the release of My People and Over & Over, Adelaide musician Mane now celebrates the release of her brand new EP, Coping Mechanisms.

A record written to heal, grow and ultimately start anew with, the EP is more than a new chapter for MANE. It is a reflective collection of music that shows her ability to become inspired and creative again after navigating some heavy times outside of music. As such, Coping Mechanisms is just that; an exploration of how to come out the other side with the potential to be stronger than before.

Coping Mechanisms follows the journey of trying times, mental health and the moments of strength in between. It’s a reminder to myself and to anyone else going through something difficult that we all have the strength in us to overcome hard times and welcome personal growth. I’ve always inherently felt things very deeply and fortunately for the better part of the last 10 years I’ve been able to have an outlet for that in my music – hence the EP title, Coping Mechanisms. I’m so proud of this body of work and I can only hope that it can resonate and help those travelling through a similar chapter of their life” Mane

The six-track record shines in texture and sonic twists and turns. Her latest single, Over & Over, is a moment of strength; Mane’s vocals building akin to London Grammar. Then you have songs like Start Again and Fucking Around, each examples of the EP’s richness and depth in sound.
