Since our first listen of California’s Skullcrusher, we realized that there was something special to her sound. Mixing bedroom pop with indie folk and indie rock, the vocals are so well balanced that they pull you in with every note. Now with her debut Skullcrusher E.P. out digitally today, the video for her song “Trace” is a beautiful reminder of life before the pandemic.
With characters prancing about from an era well before the modern one we live in, the sunny visions of the video match well with the soft notes of the song. With the singer relaying vocals from a day bed, she sings amid minstrels and various characters in the daylight. With much of the clip taking place within candlelight, the song is the real masterpiece here melding old world instruments with earnest vocals in a captivating way.
The video is available to watch above or on YouTube. The song and the new E.P. can be streamed on all streaming sites. Skullcrusher is available to preorder physically directly from Secretly Canadian ahead of its October 23 release date.
