Chastity Belt Release New Song ‘Chemtrails’

    Chastity Belt have put out a new single, ‘Chemtrails’, from their forthcoming album Live Laugh Love. The track comes with an accompanying video directed by Ertuğrul Yaka, which you can watch below.

    “‘Chemtrails” started off as a jam when we were rehearsing for an upcoming tour,” the band’s Julia Shapiro explained in a statement. “I started playing that initial lead guitar part without thinking, and the rest came together pretty naturally after that. Gretchen’s drums along with Annie’s bass really drive the song – the drums remind me a bit of Protomartyr (love those boys!), and Lydia’s lead guitar line in the chorus is very rock n roll. The lyrics are about not being able to let go of things and retracing memories in your head. I reached out to Ertuğrul Yaka about animating something to the song because his work is often pretty dark and introspective, and he came up with a video that really fits the vibe.”

    Live Laugh Love comes out March 29 via Suicide Squeeze Records. In addition to ‘Chemtrails’, it includes the early singles ‘I-90 Bridge’ and ‘Hollow’.
