Valha-nos Nossa Senhora das Núvens mas Katie Crutchfield está com ares de ir lançar o seu disco maior e um dos melhores que este ano vai ver. Saint Cloud será editado a 27 de março na Merge Records e a menina do Alabama vai já para o segundo single daquele que será o seu quinto longa-duração.

O primeiro olhar para o altar que Waxahatchee está a revelar aos poucos foi “Fire”, no final de janeiro – o vídeo está em baixo -, e agora oferece flores na nova música. “Lilacs” vem também com um vídeo realizado por Katie com Ashley Connor e Marlee Grace.

Sobre “Lilacs” Crutchfield conta que:

“Lilacs” was the last song I wrote for the record, and it’s mostly just about obsessive/negative thought patterns. It’s about backsliding into old behaviors that don’t serve you and sort of letting your worst self get the best of you. I think that when people are in that mindset, they can really try to turn the blame onto other people, so the song sort of plays out like a conflict you’d have with someone you love. It’s meant to capture that moment of heat that happens right when you realize you’re wrong or that your issue is more with yourself than with someone else—being flawed and fragile, but making progress inch by inch. The chorus serves as a sweet little resolve. I wanted it to feel like the light at the end of the tunnel and the reminder that it can always and often does get better.
