Blunt Chunks Unveils New Single ‘High Hopes’

    Blunt Chunks has unveiled a new song, ‘High Hopes’, which is lifted from her forthcoming album The Butterfly Myth. Following lead cut ‘Psyche’s Flight’, the track is featured on tomorrow’s new episode of Law & Order Toronto. Take a listen below.

    “I first wrote ‘High Hopes’ in 2018,” Caitlin Woelfle-O’Brien explained in a statement. “I just sort of left it as an unfinished idea and over the years I would come back to it, finesse the chorus, and sing it to myself as my little anthem. When we started working on the record I really wanted to include it but I was struggling to figure out the structure, so Dave and I called upon Maddee Ritter for help, and we figured it out one night. Then Diego added some jazzy Rhodes and the song really took a new shape.”

    She continued: “The lyrics are pretty self-explanatory, just about an anxious feeling I had when the person I was falling in love with was pulling away, and honestly how angry I was that they had lead me to believe they wanted more than they actually did! I was inspired by the alt-songwriters of the 90’s like Sheryl Crow and Aimee Mann and wanted to make a heartache anthemic sort of tune.”

    The Butterfly Myth arrives on April 19 via Telephone Explosion.
