Indigo De Souza announces her full length album, and first for Saddle Creek – Any Shape You Take out August 27th. To mark the occasion, she releases the first single, “Kill Me” and its wild companion video directed by Jordan Alexander. The video was inspired by the cake sitting culture originated by multimedia artist, performer and cam girl, Lindsay Dye. “We wanted to make a film about performance and stage an event that would get the crew and actors going. Cake sitting is this wonderful art form, rampant with metaphors of creation and destruction, engaging in equal parts with desire and disgust. It lends itself to the song and Indigo came over to test it out and was way better at it than I am,” said Alexander.
““I wrote ‘Kill Me’ sometime in 2018 when I was really tired and fucked up in a lot of ways. I was deeply consumed in a big crazy love and coming to terms with the reality of living with mental illness. I recorded myself stream-of-conscious singing it on the kitchen floor at night with my laptop cam. I found the video about a year later, and could barely recognize the person singing. It was such a strange feeling watching the video because I couldn’t remember writing the song, but little bits and pieces of it felt familiar to me. It felt like it had been a lot longer than a year.”
De Souza has also announced a North American tour in support of Any Shape You Take. The run begins with two nights of album release shows in her hometown of Asheville, NC at the Grey Eagle on August 26th and 27th. Highlights include The Masquerade in Atlanta, GA on August 29th, Elsewhere Zone1 in Brooklyn on September 24th and The Echo in Los Angeles on October 15th. Pre-sale begins today with the official on sale taking place on Friday, June 18th at 10 AM EST. For more information visit www.indigodesouza.com
