Turtlenecked – “Sewing Machine”

Turtlenecked’s Harrison Smith makes music at a rapid pace. Just a few months ago, he released the High Scores Of The Heart EP and in the time since then he’s moved to Brooklyn from Portland, OR and scrapped a full-length. He’s still working on the proper follow-up to last year’s Vulture, but for right now he’s presenting another new EP, Springtime In Hell, that’s made up of songs from the album that never came together.

“This time around I felt really pushed to make music that was more emotionally earnest and epic,” Smith said in a press release. “I intentionally wanted Springtime to be less informed by anxiety and more influenced by a wide range of emotions. I think what sets these songs apart from my earlier songs is that the subjects are more confessional and personal.”

The EP’s lead single is “Sewing Machine,” a floral and bright song that’s filled with a childlike desire. “When you’re getting frayed/ I’ll get the sewing machine/ And I’ll stay, stay up all night,” Smith sings in its blasted-out climax. “We’ll do the things that you like.”
