Boston singer-songwriter Ella Williams, aka Squirrel Flower, returns with her 90s essenced 'Hurt A Fly'.
The grungy, slow-burner ballad, taken from the forthcoming 'Planet (i)' album, out June 25 via Polyvinyl Record Co. / Full Time Hobby, is dreamy, yet gritty, and augmented by Williams’ soft vocal.
In a statement, Williams said that the lyrics in the song "is me embodying a persona of gaslighting, narcissistic soft-boy type shit. The classic, ‘Sorry I acted violently, I’m not mad that you got upset at me, wanna hang out next week?’ I wanted to see what it was like to be a character trying to skirt around accountability. It’s an angry and unhinged song.”
