“I think there’s a humbling process that happens when you’re in some of your darkest moments. And when you’re really at that rock bottom, you kind of see how small and insignificant we all are in the grand scheme of things. And then your sense of self or your sense of ego kind of dissolves.
And there’s kind of a lightness that comes in that relief..” – @Indigo Sparke
Today, as a part of Suicide Prevention Month, we’re releasing our next video in partnership with the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline and our “Song That Found Me At The Right Time” series. This one features the rising New York City-based indie folk artist, Indigo Sparke performing the song “Dry” by the legendary @PJ Harvey.
Sparke is releasing her incredible new album “Hysteria” next month.
On it she “examines love, loss, grief, a newly realized rage, her history, dreams, and the emotional weather patterns surrounding those sensations: her words tell the stories, and the sounds act them out. It’s a diary built for big stages”.
“White chalk hills are all I’ve known
White chalk hills will rot my bones
White chalk sticking to my sH0es
White chalk playing as a child with you
White chalk stands against time
White chalk cutting down the sea at Lyme
I walk families by the Cerne
On a path cut fifteen hundred years ago
And I know
These chalk hills will rot my bones”
