Skullcrusher will release a new EP on the Secretly Canadian label in June, and has debuted the first single from the release titled ‘Places/Plans’.
The song drifts with tender guitar and a mesmeric voice that draws the listeners into the bases of her solitude.
The accompanying video, directed by Jeremy Reynoso & Silken Weinberg displays Ballentine finding relief in a period of retreat and self-reflection as multiple characters doing various tasks.
“I thought a lot about my self-worth during this period of uncertainty. Places / Plan ‘Attempts to communicate the beauty and vulnerability of being alone and what it means to let someone else in to see that. It feels like the thematic core of the EP. It is a song for being alone in your room, lying on the floor with a book and the window open, so but for letting someone in to lie with you.”
Skullcrushers’ self-titled EP will be released on 26 June 2020.
