It may be sex music, it may be crying music. Depends on the day. Depends on how hurt or healed you are. This is the oscillation of life that Ballen digs into and delivers, exquisitely.
Whitney Ballen returns with ‘Pretend Songs’, a courageous little release, which dismantles the heart and pours beauty over everything.
On You’re a Shooting Star, I’m A Sinking Ship, Whitney Ballen details the relationship between the ups and the downs, she navigates through the untruth of interpersonal projections, and the beauty of the natural world. In doing so she arrives at an authentic experience, and one of the best debut albums we’ve heard in a long time.
On August 24 Whitney Ballen will be releasing her album, You’re a shooting star, I’m a sinking ship, via Father/Daughter records. Ahead of that release there’s this release – the single “Rainier”. Let’s talk about it for a bit.
