L’Rain, the project of Brooklyn experimentalist and multi-instrumentalist Taja Cheek, has shared ‘Blame Me’, the latest single from her upcoming sophomore album Fatigue. The track arrives with an accompanying music video directed by Andy Swartz and featuring Tinkcolorful dressed up as a clown. Watch it below.
“I am fascinated by clowns’ predilection for entropy and absurdity, and by their general role as the ultimate icon of emotional complexity (the tears of the clown…),” L’Rain said in a press release. “There’s also something about “freaks” that make me feel at home: people who are deemed useless, dangerous, or too strange to understand. Who doesn’t feel misunderstood in this time of social media, social chaos, and social scarcity?”
Fatigue, the follow-up to L’Rain’s 2017 self-titled debut, is set for release on June 25 via Mexican Summer. It includes the previously shared single ‘Two Face’.
