Don't Wanna Think: Edith's New Release Ebbs & Flows Between Emotive Breakdowns & Powerful Crescendos

London-based songwriter Edith is a force to be reckoned with for 2019. Working with The Sonic Crew (Idris Elba/ Diplo/ Lethal Bizzle) has brought her distinctive brand of pop music to life. 

Born in Romania, before relocating to England, she began writing songs at school as an outlet for emotions she was unable to vocalise. 

Creating music was the only path from a young age, with Edith joining any musical assembly available at her school, while also learning guitar and piano. 

Her mother, who was also in a band, was a massive influence on her musical journey.

Edith wrote her first song at just eleven and hasn't looked back since.

"My parents bought me my first guitar when I was 12 and ever since that it has been my favourite thing to do. 

"I love writing songs, I love being able to express how I feel in melodies. For me, my EP is my diary as every song has a story." 


Inspired by contemporary pop artists such as LANY, Troye Sivan & Dua Lipa, The new single Don't Wanna Think is the first track from the EP, which is available now.

It's a body of work that showcases the young songwriters talent, diversity and distinctive contemporary pop style. 

The first single details a story of heartbreak, with a punchy, hook-driven pop production. 

The track ebbs and flows between emotive breakdowns and powerful crescendos with prowess, displaying a songwriting ability beyond the artists years. 

On the new single, Edith says:

"Don't Wanna Think is an incredibly significant song for me, it was written at just 16, when I was experiencing a lot of new feelings for the first time. 

"The message behind the song is that no matter how much we know someone isn't right for us, or someone hurt us our hearts still crave the feeling of them being with us, so we struggle to let go. 

"Sometimes we struggle to let go of the memories, the feeling and all because we get used to having someone there for us." 

"I never knew how I really felt about the relationship until I wrote this song, then it all made sense to me."

The more music I make, the more personal and true representation of myself is, and that is so valuable to me, so I can completely relate to what Nordoff Robbins offer in music therapy to those really struggling; an opportunity for true self-expression," says Hollie Cook.
