Mega Bog has shared a new single from her upcoming album End of Everything, which arrives May 19 on Mexican Summer. This one’s called ‘Cactus People’, and it follows the previously released tracks ‘The Clown’ and ‘Love Is’. Check out its accompanying video below.
“This song is a transparent call to practice addressing what lies at the feared feet of abandonment,” Erin Birgy explained in a statement. “All of a sudden I realized I was running away, with a black widow bite, collapsing on a trail several hours out of town, alone. Reacting to something inevitable, something I desired even, and taking notes of images arising while pitting emotionality against logic. At the time they felt like enemies, but somewhere in there was a seed wailing, ‘just watch yourself unfold.’”
Of the video, she added: “While making the video for ‘Cactus People,’ similar thrills and fears had me run to Greece, where I watched old patterns rear their noses once more, but with a brazen clarity – geographically, surrounded by new and inspiring friends, all with that ancient, echoing reminder of the stones we were born to bear, who we’ll have to embrace as company to find any peace throughout this life.”
