Listen to "Feel This" by Claire Cronin Posted 02 Nov 2021
Los Angeles-based writer and musician Claire Cronin has shared the third and final advance single from her upcoming album Bloodless (out November 12 on Orindal Records). Just in time for All Souls Day, “Feel This” moans at an eerie pace and beckons with a longing to escape the physical body. Under The Radar premiered “Feel This,” calling the song “a hypnotic reverie, a dense atmosphere that Cronin winds through as a spectral presence.”
This is the most vulnerable song on the record. It’s about longing to transcend myself and get out of my body. I’m reflecting on my intimate relationships in the context of this desire to self-vacate, and acknowledging that I can’t float away and be a spirit. I have to stay here and feel different moods wash through me. "I’m also thinking of myself as one of many people who want to transcend their bodies, numb out, or feel limitless — like when the lyrics mention the “gold, guns, and Vicodin” of America. The repetition of “feel this” in the chorus is an instruction to myself, where each “this” is a different feeling I have to stay with.
"Feel This" is streaming now on all digital service providers. Find it HERE.
