‘Melete’ is the first single taken from Laurence Made Me Cry’s EP ‘Titans’ Daughters’. Produced by Swansea based musician Simon Parton, ‘Melete’ is a gentle and brooding exploration of heartbreak. The track sees Whitby delve further into the world of electronica, swapping her folk guitar style for minimalist piano paired together with the ambient lushness of Parton’s beats and synths.


I couldn’t lose you, not this time
But I was sure you’d know by now
Is this what you really want?
Well, I’ll be ok
Is this what you really want?

I gave it too much thought, I tried to keep you
We never made it that far, we never made it at all
I couldn’t help myself around you
I couldn’t help myself

Practice makes perfect sense
Put it all together and try again
Practice makes perfect sense

I was ready
She wasn’t ready

We can take a step back, just be friends
I’d do it again, I’d do it again
We can take a step back, just be friends

Practice makes perfect sense
