It’s a song rich with poetry and psychedelic themes. It uses birdwatching tropes to explore the concept of toxic relationships – with others and with yourself. Anna delivers her metaphor through haunting, Gothic vocals layered over distorted guitars and a minimal bass that come together to create a sense of unease, a longing for another world.
The video features a blind-folded Anna, clad is white, getting messy with a lot of corn syrup. You can check it out below. Anna’s debut album A Common Turn is out now.
