Singer/songwriter Annie Blackman has been writing her way into and out of heartache since adolescence. The Brooklyn artist releases her forthcoming EP Bug, on April 28th via Father/Daughter Records (Remember Sports, Miss June). A compulsive archivist, Blackman draws inspiration from her own diaries and the hallowed grounds of the notes app on her iPhone. With measured vocals and hypnotic production courtesy of Evan Rasch (Skullcrusher, Runner), Bug was recorded with engineer and mixer Allen Tate of San Fermin at Better Company Studios in Brooklyn, and marks the artist’s studio debut.

Along with the album news, Blackman has shared the EP’s first single, “Ash.” The track is a vivid take on a bad date with “one hell of an introvert,” and ends with an address to an entirely different listener: “My asbestos-cut confessional/Out loud to you at last,” Blackman sings, turning an admission into a confrontation, and further complicating an already fraught dynamic. The delicate finger-picking of an acoustic guitar dances alongside a woebegone slide, vacillating between folk and pop. Listen to “Ash” and watch its music video directed by Max Kolomatsky, Blackman’s friend from high school Film Club turned talented filmmaker and illustrator, and Cameron Pazol.
