Elisa Flynn’s new single “Before He Went Down”
This song is feral and sensual Apocalyptic-Americana, from Brooklyn-based artist Flynn’s album The World Has Ever Been on Fire, dropping 11/17.
“Before He Went Down” is the stern but aching, rocking bass-looped opening track from the album. “This is based loosely on a true story of someone I know whose partner had a psychotic break and thought he was Jesus,” Flynn explains. “This is not unique! It’s a break that many have had. and it fascinates me.” Musically, it feels like a desperate confession of losing control on the knife edge of time.
Flynn had been processing her own broken relationship as she was creating the ten tracks for The World Has Ever Been on Fire. This study of relational damage and a loss of faith in both the personal and the spiritual is what Flynn has been obsessed with for some time. “Many of my songs, in general, skirt around and incorporate religious themes. I was raised Catholic, and even though I’m an atheist, I still use the imagery in my music and art.”
Don’t miss this first single and futhermore don’t miss the upcoming album, as each track warrants its place on the album.
