My Idea, the duo composed of Lily Konigsberg (Palberta) and Nate Amos (Water From Your Eyes), release their first album, Cry Mfer, April 22 via Hardly Art. Now they have shared their second single, “Crutch”. Listen below.
My Idea describes “Crutch” as “the anthem of co-dependency” and a press release says the song (and album) “exist as a document of Konigsberg and Amos’ collective breaking point”, adding that after recording the album, they both decided to give up drinking.
The band collectively had this to say about the new song in a press release: “‘Crutch’ was written at a time when both of our personal lives had begun to fall apart around us. The outside influences started to fade away and as we started relying on each other more and more, the music was the only thing that worked in the midst of the chaos. This song became a sort of beacon guiding us throughout the making of the album.
Previously, the group shared a video for the album’s title track, “Cry Mfer”, which was one of our songs of the week.
The water in your eyes is featured in our next blankets of blankets compilation, which will be released this Friday via American Laundromat.
