Watch: Waxahatchee shares hypnotic video for ‘Recite Remorse’

Katie Crutchfield’s fourth album ‘Out In The Storm’ came out earlier this month via Merge.

Waxahatchee released her fourth album, the excellent ‘Out In The Storm’, last month, and has now shared a video for one of its highlights, ‘Recite Remorse’.

A great deal less crunchy than the album’s previous singles, ‘Recite Remorse’ lets Katie Crutchfield’s vocals fill the space left by the lack of guitars. Instead, shimmering synth lines swim their way through the track.

The new video complements this style perfectly - Katie floats her way around a room filled with hypnotic blue lights.

We talked to the Philadelphia-based singer for the new issue of DIY about her vital, turbulent new record, and settling into her shoes as one of indie rock’s best songwriters.

“I was really emotionally overwrought when I wrote this record,” she comments. “My friend Daniel, who took the photo for the artwork, described it as ‘claustrophobic’, and I completely agree. There’s so much in there, but I think it’s cool, I think it’s good. It’s all the stuff I always needed to say and never got the chance to.

“For me, one of my priorities as a songwriter is to articulate exactly how I’m feeling, and if I can get really close to being able to do that, hopefully that will draw people in and help them to relate to it. That’s the best feeling, and I think that I did that.”
