Squirrel Flower has shared a new single called ‘Flames and Flat Tires’, lifted from her upcoming album Planet (i). The track, which features vocals from Brooke Bentham, arrives with an accompanying video directed by Lua Borges. Check it out below.
Ella Williams said of the new song in a statement:
i wrote flames on my second day of quarantine in Bristol, England ahead of recording. it was late august, hot, i was staying in a place that opened onto a party street, and every night I stayed up listening to the sounds of the revelers and the birds squawking and screaming until 6am, then all day watched people hanging laundry in their backyards through my kitchen window.
Borges added of the video:
This video is encased by the imagery of broken parts and abandonment. Objects that have become useless. Physical matter that looks so small inside our world. It gives life to an internal feeling of self-doubt and uncertainty, which the song approaches so intently. But ‘Flames & Flat Tires’ is also about fighting to overcome that, and staying present fully.
