SRSQ has shared a new video for the single “Temporal Love,” the track appears on a 7″ recently released by Dais Records. She is also announcing a slew of European tour dates including stops at the Roadburn Festival & Tomorrow’s Ghost Festival, as well as select dates with HEALTH.
“Temporal Love” is about the condition of experiencing time, how moments can be warped and stretched, and how memories can pervade in disorienting totality. The video, directed by Kennedy Ashlyn and shot/edited by Leigh Violet, takes place on prom night in an alternate reality, seeped in the romantic nostalgia of a woozy “night to remember.”
SRSQ is the solo project of singer and songwriter Kennedy Ashlyn, the founding member of the bay-area dream pop duo Them Are Us Too. SRSQ’s pulse began after the loss of Kennedy’s closest friend and Them Are Us Too collaborator, Cash Askew, in the tragic Ghost Ship fire of 2016. Driven by this sudden, heartbreaking loss, SRSQ became the vehicle for Kennedy’s transformative process for her to explore nostalgia, reflection, and reconciliation, manifesting in the aural landscape of her 2018 debut album, Unreality.
It’s been a year since the release of Unreality and 2019 has taken SRSQ around the world, touring extensively with Black Queen and Uniform, sold out performances in support of Cold Cave and Godflesh, tours with Torche and Drab Majesty, and a current run with TR/ST this fall. Amid performances and writing in preparation for her upcoming 2020 album, Ashlyn went into the studio with producer Jorge Elbrecht, who mixed down two new tracks featured on the 7” single Temporal Love b/w Unkept.
Temporal Love b/w Unkept was produced by Kennedy Ashlyn, mixed by Jorge Elbrecht (Ariel Pink, Wild Nothing) and mastered by Josh Bonati. The single comes packaged in a pocket sleeve with insert designed by Nathaniel Young featuring photography by Jess Garten
