Chastity Belt have released a new single called ‘Fake’. It’s the A-side to their new limited 7″ that includes the previously shared track ‘Fear’, which landed on our Best New Songs segment. Check it out below, alongside an accompanying video directed by Eleanor Petry.
“This song is about not being able to be honest and vulnerable with someone – talking about surface level things in order to avoid real conversations,” Chastity Belt’s Julia Shapiro explained in a statement. “It started as a poem I wrote when I was camping at Lake Siskiyou in Mt. Shasta, and then I turned it into a song.”
Petry added: “Making the ‘Fake’ video was a dream come true! I started getting into clowning a few years ago so it just felt so right to clown around Seattle with the CB gals and capture their various clown talents (juggling, blading, etc…). I ended up making the final edits while at a puppet festival in France, which was just perfect, getting rooted on by all the clowns and puppeteers as the video came together.”
Chastity Belt’s ‘Fake / Fear’ is out this Friday, December 3.
