Lily Konigsberg of Palberta and Nate Amos of Water From Your Eyes have shared "Crutch," their second track as My Idea. It follows the lead single and title track of their debut album, CRY MFER, out April 22 via Hardly Art.
The new song is two minutes of breezy folk-rock fun with Konigsberg's double-tracked vocals and double-edged lyrics elevating it to more rarified air. "Silence, sadness, pain / Gladness, I'm into all that stuff / Still I'm sorry that you're my crutch," she sings, saying a lot with a little.
“‘Crutch’ was written at a time when both of our personal lives had begun to collapse around us,” My Idea write. “Outside influences began to disappear and as we began to rely on each other more and more — the music was the only thing that functioned amidst the chaos. This song became kind of a beacon leading us through the remainder of making the album.”
