On the heels of the successful release of her critically-acclaimed single “I’m Fine,” renowned indie pop artist Kingsley is back with the second song and video from her forthcoming album Crying On Holidays (Spring 2021). “Therapy,” which Kingsley says was inspired by her “journey back to self-love after giving so much away in a relationship,” is available now on all DSPs and the empowering video athttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OINmQaJ-6wQ, just in time for Women’s History Month.
Working with Sean Berahmand of Sunset Digs Studio, who recorded, mixed, and mastered the single, Kingsley describes the the process of bringing the song to life as “an incredible one” and that she is “truly humbled by how the song came out.”
According to Kingsley, “Therapy” – as well as the rest of the music from her forthcoming album Crying On Holidays (slated for Spring 2021) – embodies a more mature sound that is “shaping into its own.”
To support the release of the single, Kingsley teamed up with an all-Black American, female team to produce the inspiring “Therapy” video. The entire cast and crew for the video, including director, choreographer, camera women, photographers, stylists, and dancers were all Black-American, female women from Portland, who came together to tell a somewhat twisted Cinderella-inspired tale.
“I wanted to write a song and make a video about saving yourself. Because like life, you start therapy because other people are making your life hell and you need a way to cope with it all,” said Kingsley. “But, all the while you learn that it is you …and only you …who can determine the outcome of your life. You find out that YOU are the prince in the end.”
“Therapy” is the second in a series of singles and videos that Kingsley will be releasing prior to her Spring album launch. According to the artist, she plans to unveil each new track on the 15th of the month and the video on the last day of the month.
Kingsley first earned critical acclaim in 2017 when she found herself at the forefront of Portland’s fierce, female-led underground music scene with her hit single “Ghost” and subsequent EP I Am Because I Am (2018). Hailed as an artist who has “crafted a sound that transcends genres and challenges expectations (PRP),” Kingsley’s Crying On Holidays is her sophomore release and is expected to drop Spring 2021.
“Therapy” is available now on all DSPs and the video is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OINmQaJ-6wQ
