Nova Scotia born, colourfully creative art-pop artist Language Arts is back with her new single “Falling Out of View”, which can be stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“It’s about the idea that our past self is still present in our lives and we imagine a future that can be made of fantasies of where and how we expected to be,” says Language Arts. “Sometimes I fight with my past self or feel nostalgic but there are times where I wish I could just erase moments of time, from my brain and let that part of me die. Britt Proulx and I thought it would be best to create theme and variation of visuals morphing into one another. They obviously represent the past, present and future. But then it was decided that to best serve the song and the prose, that making the video, a lyric piece, would give the viewer a true connection to the illustrations that are delivered through the words.”
Language Arts is the alias for classical guitarist turned art pop songstress, Kristen Cudmore which started in Halifax in 2005 and is now based in Toronto via Vancouver. After suffering a traumatic brain injury, Cudmore began writing a new album Lemon//Lime from her hospital bed. The album which is set for release sometime in 2019, took Cudmore a few years to write, record and complete, and is the result of a collaboration with multi-Grammy-winning, David Bottrill (Tool, Peter Gabriel, Smashing Pumpkins) and Juno-winning, Joel Stouffer (Serena Ryder, Lowell, Dragonette).
The album narrates the healing process of getting hit by a drunk driver. Cudmore’s lyrics are heavy and honest, about how she has become a “lemon” and the music is a juxtaposition, being a New Wave x Vapour Wave, dark dance boogie -a zesty lime flavour!
