Ellis is the moniker of Ontario’s Linnea Siggelkow and she is set to release her debut LP on 4/3 via the fine folks at Fat Possum. Musically, it is fuzzy dream-pop which I can go either way on, but she’s got a great voice. Here’s what she has to say on the first track.

On the sweetly hazy “Fall Apart,” Ellis takes on a heart-crushing vulnerability, laying bare her longtime struggle with anxiety and its impact on her most precious relationships. She says of the song: “This is really just an honest reflection of my struggle with anxiety and how I can’t hide it from the people closest to me. It’s about the feeling the first time someone you admire sees you in your most vulnerable state, about putting in the work to get better but still having moments of weakness. My anxiety comes over me like a tidal wave, and it feels like I am spiraling out of control. I am finding better and healthier ways to cope, to talk myself down when I can feel myself starting to fall, but it still happens sometimes even though I wish that it didn’t.”
