Hailing from Hamilton, ON, Ellis (aka Linnea Sigglekow) takes us into an intimate encounter with anxiety in her new video “Fall Apart.” Directed by Habron Jibril, the video features Ellis battling her own anxiety in isolation. “And now you see me on my bad days / Falling back into my old ways / Spinning in circles in a black haze” she chants. Hit play:

Regarding the single, Ellis shared:

“This is really just an honest reflection of my struggle with anxiety and how I can’t hide it from the people closest to me. It’s about the feeling the first time someone you admire sees you in your most vulnerable state, about putting in the work to get better but still having moments of weakness. My anxiety comes over me like a tidal wave, and it feels like I am spiraling out of control. I am finding better and healthier ways to cope, to talk myself down when I can feel myself starting to fall, but it still happens sometimes even though I wish that it didn’t.”

The track is from Ellis’ upcoming record Born Again, which will be out on April 3rd via Fat Possum. She’ll also kick off her North American tour in March, so go say hi:
