Esther Rose Shares Video for New Song ‘Spider’

    Esther Rose has released a new song her upcoming LP Safe to Run. Following previous offering ‘Chet Baker’ and the title track, ‘Spider’ arrives with an accompanying video directed by Anthony Simpkins. Check it out below.

    Speaking about the song, Rose said: “As I was writing this, I remember thinking ‘This. Is. My. Final. Word!!!’ My drummer Lonnie calls this one an ‘emotional dump truck.’ We tracked vocals live and tried to redo them later, but they didn’t hit as hard as the original take. There’s something kind of deranged happening in the third verse, the situational complexities, you can feel it. It’s our favourite to play live.”

    Anthony Simpkins added, “When Esther approached me to make this video, she had an idea to involve a boxing match. I thought, why not film it at a real MMA event? I love the stark contrast in the on-screen action and Esther’s song. It is somehow both the polar opposite and perfectly matching the journey each person is going through from the beginning of the night to the end of the fight. Love, anxiety, pain, triumph, anger, defeat… you feel everything at a fight. Esther captures the same emotions in her songs.”

    Safe to Run is due out April 21 via New West Records.
