hemlocke springs first emerged last year with "girlfriend," an addictive, high-energy earworm that promptly blew up on TikTok. She followed that up with "stranger danger!" in January and today she has dropped another new song. "sever the blight" begins in melodramatic fashion with springs situating herself in a dank basement tied up by the ankles. It's not all doom and gloom, however, with the song powered by a sleek synth-laden beat courtesy of BURNS, the EDM-adjacent producer who contributed heavily to Lady Gaga's Chromatica.
The track's playful tone is matched by a medieval-themed video that imagines a world in which springs drinks wine from a goblet, dances wildly in her turret and stages sword fights for entertainment. It, like springs' whole vibe, is a great deal of fun. Check it out below.
