Earlier this month, Ellis (aka Linnea Siggelkow) announced her anticipated debut EP, The Fuzz with the release of her latest single “Frostbite”.
“The Drain,” was the first Ellis single to be released back in July, and today Ellis is sharing the video for that single, self-directed by Siggelkow in collaboration with Andy Friesen.
“My good friend Andy Friesen and I directed ‘The Drain’ video together, and the creation of this video was really DIY as it was my first experience directing,” says Siggelkow. “Neither of us had really done anything quite like it before, but we borrowed a camera, rented a fog machine and went for it. The concept of the song is about mustering up the courage to dive into the ‘deep end’. I’m actually not a very good swimmer, so it’s a metaphor that is really real to me. I had this picture in my head of wading out into the lake, something I haven’t always felt brave enough to do, but I’m not afraid of it anymore.”
Watch the video below.
The Fuzz will be released on November 9th and in support of the release Ellis will be playing a Toronto headlining show and her first American date in NYC on November 15th.
