Heartworms Announces Debut EP ‘A Comforting Notion’, Shares Video for New Song

    Heartworms has announced her debut EP, A Comforting Notion, which is due out March 24 via Speedy Wunderground. To accompany the announcement, the South London artist has shared a new track, ‘Retributions of an Awful Life’, which follows her debut single ‘Consistent Dedication’. It arrives with a video created with Niall Trask and Dan Matthews; check it out below.

    “The song itself lyrically is deeply unsettling, I wanted it to come alive in action,” Heartworms explained in a statement. “I had an idea of being kitted up in full militaria of no specific regiments, in black and white, putting my body through cold water and wet mud. This was stepping outside my comfort zone because I’m not a skilled swimmer; deep water frightens me immensely, especially when cold and in full military gear.”

    She continued: “Not many artists/bands I know have done something this raw. I didn’t want to go for a fancy video with pretty dancers or lovely wallpaper plastered with an airbrush filter – I wanted to imbibe a new pain, bring to life punishment, fight fears while abiding relentlessness with my friends by my side. To have put my body through something I found frightening just for the art… there’s something exhilarating about it.”
