CLARE EASDOWN - Scopolamine
Scopolamine" is about the power of love, loss and the knowing deep down that she honestly may never ever see or hear from the one person she loves ever, ever again.
On Clare Easdown’s Spotify page, the artist describes “Scopolamine” as “open heart surgery of the deepest kind.” In a way, it feels like a heartbreaking lullaby: calm, but with the tears of longing still palpable in her lyrics and her voice. The Sydney-based singer and producer has released a slew of singles throughout the year, but her latest may be her best yet. Filled with ethereal vocals and synths, Easdown pines for a former lover who has ghosted her, only to receive no contact back. The song is highly molded by some of her influences, including Grimes, Lana Del Rey, and FKA Twigs.
Easdown herself describes the song as being “about the power of love, loss and the knowing deep down that she honestly may never see or hear from the one person she loves ever, ever again.” In a way, the song also calls to mind the classic ballads of the 50s, albeit with more atmospheric elements. “Scopolamine” is a stellar song, and Clare Easdown may be one of the brightest talents coming out of Sydney today.
