Set for release on 27th August, Indigo De Souza has announced that her brand new album ‘Any Shape You Take’ is officially on the way, sharing first single ‘Kill Me’ to get us hyped for what’s to come.
“I wrote ‘Kill Me’ sometime in 2018 when I was really tired and fucked up in a lot of ways,” she explains. “I was deeply consumed in a big crazy love and coming to terms with the reality of living with mental illness. I recorded myself stream-of-conscious singing it on the kitchen floor at night with my laptop cam. I found the video about a year later, and could barely recognize the person singing. It was such a strange feeling watching the video because I couldn’t remember writing the song, but little bits and pieces of it felt familiar to me. It felt like it had been a lot longer than a year.”
The track is accompanied by a video directed by Jordan Alexander, inspired by the cake sitting culture originated by multimedia artist, performer and cam girl, Lindsay Dye. As Jordan says, “We wanted to make a film about performance and stage an event that would get the crew and actors going. Cake sitting is this wonderful art form, rampant with metaphors of creation and destruction, engaging in equal parts with desire and disgust. It lends itself to the song and Indigo came over to test it out and was way better at it than I am.”
