Emily Cross has already stunned us with her moving, deeply creative understanding and interpretation of music with the release of “Steady Waves” and “High Rise”, which came with an incredible video. Now, she unveils a more eerie, abstract side of her musical abilities. The newly released track “Basket” is dissonant with a looming sense of anxiety. Cross’s soft voice trickles down and echoes across the constant buzzing, ringing and tapping instrumentals. According to Cross, the track describes parenthood through the process of creating a basket. Hear it for yourself:
“Basket” is off of Cross Record’s upcoming record, Wabi-Sabi, which is due out January 29th on Ba Da Bing Records.
