Chastity Belt share new single 'Chemtrails'

With their eagerly-awaited new album set to arrive later next month, Chastity Belt have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Chemtrails' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Ertuğrul Yaka, and follows on from the previously shared efforts 'Hollow' and 'I-90 Bridge' in previewing their new LP 'Live Laugh Love', which is out on the 29th March via Suicide Squeeze Records.

Speaking about the new release, the band's Julia Shapiro said, “Chemtrails” started off as a jam when we were rehearsing for an upcoming tour. I started playing that initial lead guitar part without thinking, and the rest came together pretty naturally after that. Gretchen’s drums along with Annie’s bass really drive the song - the drums remind me a bit of Protomartyr (love those boys!), and Lydia’s lead guitar line in the chorus is very rock n roll. The lyrics are about not being able to let go of things and retracing memories in your head. I reached out to Ertuğrul Yaka about animating something to the song because his work is often pretty dark and introspective, and he came up with a video that really fits the vibe."

On the video, animator Ertuğrul Yaka added, "Every person has the hope of finding their other half throughout their lives. I tried to explain the deprivation suffered by a person who cannot find her other half. The smiley mask is the persona that she shows to other people. The moon is a metaphor describing the search for couples to each other. At the end of the song 'I'm painting us a picture in my head' based on the lyrics, I made the reunion inspired by 'The Lovers' painting by Rene Magritte."
