Aerial East shares new single 'Katharine'

With her eagerly-awaited new album dropping in less than a month, Aerial East has now returned to share the next cut to be taken from her forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Katharine' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Luca Venter, and follows on from the previously shared title-track in previewing her new LP 'Try Harder', which lands on the 12th February via Partisan Records.

Speaking about the new offering, she said, “My friendship with Katharine was very important to me and changed my life. She is the reason I moved to New York. She was the first person I shared my songs with, and she insisted I share them with others. I wrote this song in a cab on my way to a staff holiday party at Hooters. I'm not sure why I was thinking about her in that moment but she is still an important figure in my life even though we haven't seen each other in a while.”

While adding about the new video, “I've always thought cranes were beautiful, so when Luca mentioned his idea to shoot someone in a slow zoom on a crane I was hooked. I thought, if we can get a crane it will be so stunning to see someone dangling in the sky like that. Finding the crane was pretty daunting and at some points seemed pretty unlikely. But one day we went down to Red Hook, drawn by the many cranes permanently perched by the water and hoping to gain access. We were hitting a lot of discouraging dead ends when we stopped by our friend Benny's record shop and he, magical person that he is, said he knew a guy, Preston, with a homemade 30 ft crane built by an artist to transport his large sculptures. Support your local record stores!”
