Hamilton, Ontario’s Ellis (aka Linnea Siggelkow) released her stunning debut album Born Again last month, and today she shares a gorgeous music video for the album opener “Pringle Creek.” The track was recently named one of NPR Music’s Best Songs of April, saying “Ellis spins a reverie in a warm wash of shoegaze soundscapes and collapses it with a blaze of guitar.” Check out the music video now via FLOOD.
“I had previously recorded another version of this song and was nearly about to release it along with this video as a random single last summer but at the last minute, I changed my mind,” Ellis explains. “I was in the process of writing the record and realized I wanted this track to be included on the album instead. I loved the song but we had sort of recorded it in a hurry and I wanted to give it the proper energy and attention I thought it deserved.”
“I wrote this song about falling in love in Whitby, Ontario so naturally Justin and I chose to shoot the video there. I loved the way it turned out, so when i decided not to release the song as planned I felt really sad about letting go of the video. When I went into the studio to re-record the song, I was adamant about keeping the same bpm as the original recording so that we could still use the video we had made. It feels like forever ago that we filmed this, but it brings back really nice memories for me and maybe it will bring you some nice feelings too.”
