Ellis is the project of Hamilton-based singer-songwriter Linnea Siggelkow. We introduced her with the track “The Drain” and the debut The Fuzz. Now she announced the release of the first full-length titled Born Again which will be out on April 3rd via Fat Possum. It was produced by Jake Aron (Snail Mail, Solange, Grizzly Bear) and recorded partly at Aron’s Brooklyn studio. “Fall Apart” is the first excerpt.
She says of the song: “This is really just an honest reflection of 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 of weakness. My anxiety comes over me like a tidal wave, and it feels like I am spiralling out of 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.”
