Skullcrusher has released ‘It’s Like a Secret’, the latest single off her upcoming album Quiet the Room – out October 14 via Secretly Canadian. The track, which follows previous cuts ‘Whatever Fits Together’, ‘They Quiet the Room’, and ‘Quiet the Room’, comes with an accompanying video animated by Melanie Kleid. Check it out below.
“Writing this song was when I first felt connected to the album as a whole and really felt it taking shape,” Helen Ballentine explained in a press release. “I had been trying to put into words a very familiar sensation that seemed completely intangible and inexpressible. It’s sort of a burrowing into myself, which I associate most with being very immersed in a creative project and simultaneously quite disconnected from other people.”
She continued: “I think this feeling manifests in many different ways: as a shield or form of protection, a home, a place to hide and feel safe, an outlet for my creativity… but also a very confining and lonely space that further separates me from those around me. The song ended up being about this feeling and more specifically about the process and limitations of trying to communicate it. It feels very special to be able to convey these thoughts in some way.”
