Squirrel Flower – Red Shoulder

Squirrel Flower (he moniker of Ella O’Connor Williams ) has announced her debut album I Was Born Swimming, out January 31st on Full Time Hobby. First single Red Shoulder is a melancholic and atmospheric stunner, that simmers with potency, all soulful guitars, haunting vocals, and crashing choruses. Squirrel Flower’s music is steely and confident, at the same time as being gently ethereal. Brooding and delicate, she’s crafting something really special.

Red Shoulder is a song about destabilisation and dissociation,’ explains Williams. ‘Something soft and tender becomes warped and sinister, turning into sensory overload and confusion. How can something so lovely turn painful and claustrophobic? The song ends with a heavy and visceral guitar solo, attempting to reground what went awry.’
