In late 2018, the Ontario-based musician Linnea Siggelkow released her debut EP as Ellis, The Fuzz. The strength that EP landed her on our Best New Bands list the following year, and now she’s gearing up to release her first full-length album. It’s called Born Again and it’ll be out at the beginning April.
Today, she’s sharing the first single from it, “Fall Apart,” a lovely bit dream-pop about reverting to bad behavior. “”And now you see me on my bad days/ Falling back into my old ways,” she sings in the chorus. “Spinning circles in a black haze/ I didn’t mean to fall apart.”
“This is really just an honest reflection my struggle with anxiety and how I can’t hide it from the people closest to me. It’s about the feeling the first time someone you admire sees you in your most vulnerable state, about putting in the work to get better but still having moments weakness,” Siggelkow said in a statement. “My anxiety comes over me like a tidal wave, and it feels like I am spiraling out control. I am finding better and healthier ways to cope, to talk myself down when I can feel myself starting to fall, but it still happens sometimes even though I wish that it didn’t.”
