Kristine Leschper – “Ribbon”

Kristine Leschper – “Ribbon”

Last month, Mothers leader Kristine Leschper announced that she was now putting out music under her own name and released her first solo single, “Figure And I.” Today, she’s announced a whole solo album, The Opening, Or Closing Of A Door, which will be out on March 4. She’s also shared a new track, the sweeping and subtle “Ribbon.”

“I found myself wanting to explore love songs, and this is really the framework of The Opening, Or Closing Of A Door,” Leschper said in a statement. “‘Ribbon’ is a love song that holds a certain tension — it is the taut line of attempting to read the intentions of another, built with imagery of opposing materialities: a knife meets a ribbon, asking for a kind of vulnerability. A suggestion of something new emerging at this intersection.”
