Phoebe Bridgers Rips A Bong, Shares Single 'Garden Song' + Video

Phoebe Bridgers Rips A Bong, Shares Single 'Garden Song' + Video

A.K. / Thursday 27th February, 2020 11:17AM

Everybody's favourite California folk-pop songwriter and Twitter royalty Phoebe Bridgers shares her first new solo music since her breakthrough 2017 record Stranger In The Alps and her follow-up deluxe edition two years back. In fine Bridgers fashion, 'Garden Song' is a frank confession of dark times delivered with too much detail not to be true, but never too bleak for too long – forever lightening the mood with lyrics like "The doctor put her hands over my liver, She told me my resentment’s getting smaller". The accompanying visuals for 'Garden Song' were directed by her brother Jackson, who was given instructions to film her getting fully baked, then surprise her with whatever he saw fit – which turned out to be human-sized worms on a string, Tig Notaro in monk's garb, and what can only be described as May Queen Grimace eating a dog. You should probably just watch it.

Speaking to Zane Lowe, Bridgers let slip the story behind the rumbling bass BVs on the track: "So on ‘Garden Song’ my tour manager sings with me – he’s 6 ft 7. He’s a Dutch man named Jeroen. I realised he had the voice of an angel when he was singing Mitski with me in the van and he was two octaves below me and I was like ‘You sound like a Dutch Matt Berninger from The National.’”

Take a hit of the dank new single from Phoebe Bridgers, and see where you can catch her supporting The National in Aotearoa this April...
