Softcult Announce ‘Heaven’ EP, Share New Song ‘Spiralling Out’

    Softcult have announced the Heaven EP with a new single, ‘Spiralling Out’. Set for release on May 24 through Easy Life, the EP features the previously unveiled ‘Shortest Fuse’, ‘Haunt You Still’, and the title track. Check out a video for the new cut below.

    “We wrote this song about those times when we ruminate over a situation over and over again to no end,” the band said of ‘Spiralling Out’ in a statement. “Sometimes it feels like there’s no amount of self-talk that can get us out of that spiral. It feels like everything is out of control and the world is like a carnival ride spinning all around us, but we are paralyzed and unable to step on or off. Hopefully this song is one that lets other people who struggle with anxiety know that they aren’t alone and we can also relate to how they feel, and that they have the ability to step into their power and take it back.”

    Commenting on the video, the duo’s Mercedes Arn-Horn Mercedes added: “Motion was a huge factor in the music video. I wanted to evoke the feeling of being pulled into an anxious spiral. I wanted to recreate the feeling of the world spinning out of control around you. We used any means of motion that we could find: a Merry-Go-Round that physically made us sick after filming, a carousel in Seattle on tour, etc. We actually gave ourselves motion sickness filming this video.”
