Ian Sweet (aka Los Angeles–based artist Jillian Medford) has shared a video for her new single “Fight.” The song is set to appear on and in-progress EP called Star Stuff. After wrapping up a U.S. tour in March, Ian Sweet starts a string of European dates tomorrow (May 18) in the Netherlands before returning to the States in July. Check out the full list of dates and the video for “Fight” below.

In a statement, Medford said “Fight” is about a pandemic relationship that didn’t work out:

Spending everyday with someone, doing everything together, not knowing if the world was going to end. Leaning on someone with such heaviness, putting our entire weight and being onto each other because it’s all we had. The song plays into both the monotony of the relationship and the catastrophe that I went through after it ended. I felt so content in the relationship but then my entire world fell apart when it ended and I didn’t know how to pick myself back up and move forward.

Of the work-in-progress EP Star Stuff, Medford said: “Some songs come quickly and it doesn’t feel right to hold onto them. It’s important for me to put out music as it comes, and not hold onto it for too long—it’s always amazing to have it be part of something greater, but I want to share what I’m feeling almost as it happens.”

Ian Sweet shared a new song called “F*ckThat” in September. She released her last LP, Show Me How You Disappear, in March 2021.
