SOFTCULT announce EP Heaven and share new single/video ‘Spiralling Out’

Softcult have announced details of a new EP entitled Heaven, set to be released on May 24 on Easy Life. Along with the announcement they have also shared a new track and video, ‘Spiralling Out’.

‘Spiralling Out’ is one of the EP’s more delicate moments – a sheer and heady track about anxiety. “We wrote this song about those times when we ruminate over a situation over and over again to no end” the band offer. “Sometimes it feels like there’s no amount of self-talk that can get us out of that spiral. It feels like everything is out of control and the world is like a carnival ride spinning all around us, but we are paralyzed and unable to step on or off.

“Hopefully this song is one that lets other people who struggle with anxiety know that they aren’t alone and we can also relate to how they feel, and that they have the ability to step into their power and take it back.”

On the video, Mercedes of Softcult said “Motion was a huge factor in the music video. I wanted to evoke the feeling of being pulled into an anxious spiral. I wanted to recreate the feeling of the world spinning out of control around you. We used any means of motion that we could find: a Merry-Go-Round that physically made us sick after filming, a carousel in Seattle on tour, etc. We actually gave ourselves motion sickness filming this video.”
