Spellling has announced signing to Sacred Bones with the video for new single, ‘Hard To Please’. The b-side to the 7” single, which will be released this Friday. ‘My Other Voice’ is a cover of the Sparks 1979 symphonic disco track. It channels a more sinister state of romantic high, commanding obedience from an aloof lover, “You're so independent but that’s going to change real soon/with my other voice I can destroy this room.” The sinister tone is juxtaposed with the jubilant music, grooving celestially along and set off by Spellling’s entrancing vocals.
Spellling is the work of Chrystia Cabral. She began experimenting with music production in 2015 in an effort to carry on the creative legacy of a lost loved one and released her first full-length, Pantheon of Me, in September 2017. It was written, performed and produced by Spellling in her apartment in Berkeley, California.
Drawing heavily from messages in her dreams, her sound spirals through clarity and obscurity searching through landscapes of psychic space. The result is a divine soul music, soft in its restraint but heavy with passion. Hers is a unique vision, inhabiting a world of its own. Spellling’s forthcoming full-length album is due out early 2019.
