My Idea, aka besties Lily Konigsberg (Palberta) and Nate Amos (Water From Your Eyes), have unveiled their latest single “Crutch.” The track captures finding comfort and escape from chaos in something or someone. For the duo, music has served as an outlet that has helped them get through the chaos of their environment. 

“‘Crutch’ was written at a time when both of our personal lives had begun to collapse around us,” says the band. “Outside influences began to disappear and as we began to rely on each other more and more – the music was the only thing that functioned amidst the chaos. This song became kind of a beacon leading us through the remainder of making the album.”

The track is from their debut album CRY MFER, which will be out on April 22nd via Handly Art. They’ll be playing a few shows in April.
