News Skullcrusher announces debut album ‘Quiet The Room’

Listen to new single ‘Whatever Fits Together’ now.

Set for release on 14th October on Secretly Canadian, Skullcrusher - aka singer-songwriter Helen Ballentine - has announced her debut album ‘Quiet The Room’.

Sharing new single ‘Whatever Fits Together’ alongside the news, she says of the track, “I wrote ‘Whatever Fits Together’ while reflecting on my past and wondering how I might begin to explain it to someone. I viewed my younger self through a wash of emotions: anger, sadness, pity, confusion, all reaching for a kind of compassion. I tried to capture the contradictions that comprise my past and define who I am now. As I looked back, I saw my life in pieces: some moments blacked out, some extremely vivid, some leading nowhere. Through the song I attempt to piece it together in some non-linear form and accept my disparate story.”
