It’s a massive chunk of news today (February 26) from alt-pop artist Yorke. The singer-songwriter has announced her upcoming debut EP ‘Liberosis’ with a video for its first single, ‘Treading Water’.
“We really wanted to create something abstract and emotive,” Yorke said of her latest music video in a press statement. “We set out to interpret the transition from internal struggle to strength and empowerment as per the song’s message.
“I think it sums it up perfectly.”
