SPELLLING – “Haunted Water”

In February, the Bay Area artist Chrystia Cabral will release her second album as SPELLLING, Mazy Fly. It’s the follow-up to her debut album, Pantheon Of Me, which came out in 2017. Over the last few months, she’s shared “Hard To Please” off the album and a cover of Sparks’ “My Other Voice,” and today she’s officially announced the LP alongside a new song, “Haunted Water.”

True to its title, it’s a submerged and eerie piece of work, all aqueous beats and vocals stretched to their limits. A press release describes the track as “an intensely heavy song about the memories of colonial violence that haunt the historical slave ship routes of the Middle Passage.”
