With the new year comes new music and from Squirrel Flower, her debut album will see the light of day. While we aren’t one hundred percent sure what I Was Born Swimming will sound like when it comes out in January, but her new single “Headlights” should give you an idea of what to expect.
The song has moments of tenderness that stand among the stark elements. The way the guitar echoes beneath the vocals creates a space that’s inviting and warm. The echo of the drums and the underlying synths craft a tone that’s hard to shake in its haunting demeanor. The video has a very West Coast vibe that’s occurring on the East Coast somewhere. The imagery of the convertible making its way through tree lined streets works perfectly with the music.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. I Was Born Swimming is available for preorder directly from Polyvinyl Records ahead of its January 31 release. Squirrel Flower will be on tour beginning January 28 in London, UK at The Islington until April 11 in Montreal, Canada at Casa del Popolo. Her complete tour schedule can be located here.
