She said: “Slowly feels like one of the most vulnerable songs I’ve ever written.

“I used to think falling in love was supposed to be chaotic, fiery and tumultuous, but I’ve realised that really, to fall in love normally and to have a healthy and ordinary relationship is a beautiful thing.

“It’s a song asking for patience when starting to fall in love.”

Slowly will be part of her EP Growth, released on July 30 by AMF Records.

She said: “Growth is a time capsule of the last year. It is me processing my perspective on love and loving myself.

“Each song feels like a different stage of understanding relationships, whether with yourself or somebody else.

“It is at times felt like my most difficult project but in the end has been the most rewarding.”
