“Cartoon Earthquake” is about the uncertainty that comes with falling in love. I wanted the earthquake metaphor to be as dramatic as possible, because in real life I was trying to play it cool,” she said in a press release.
“The song is my version of the famously annoying internet question ‘would you still love me if I was a worm?’ but instead it’s ‘would you risk your life and jump over a crack in the ground to be with me?’”
According to a press release, “Blondshell is the angriest, clearest and most vulnerable side of Sabrina Teitelbaum. Blondshell is a woman who knows where her wounds are and instead of looking away, she studies them, cleans them, and sews them back up.”
Blondshell hit the music scene this year, releasing her first single “Olympus” in June. She then released “Kiss City” in July and “Sepsis” in August. She has received praise from Billboard, Pitchfork, MTV, Alternative Press and more.
In addition to the single, Blondshell also announced her debut New York City show at the Mercury Lounge on Wednesday, December 7. Despite being a New York City native, she has yet to play a hometown show. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. EDT and can be purchased here. The event is 18 years and older, and doors open at 6 p.m..
