Lafawndah is back with her latest genre-bending pop single, “Storm Chaser”. A track filled with fluidity and freedom, the song is a devotional praise song for a tempestuous, anti-authoritarian spirit, celebrating a much-needed surrender to turbulence as an act of emancipation.
This seals a long-running motif in Lafawndah’s music: an intuitive symmetry between the emotional interior and the elemental exterior. As Lafawndah sings: “if only you can open up/just let her show you”; how to face uncertainty; how to feed on the breaking points; how to forge complicity with forces bigger than yourself.
Speaking exclusively to Wonderland about the track, Lafawndah said: “Storm Chaser is the personification of a particular longing: to be moved by a force more powerful than yourself. The kind of larger- than- life force that plummets with abandon towards chaos– not to celebrate disaster, but to rebuild the present.”
Lafawndah’s debut album, ANCESTOR BOY, is out this Friday. Listen to the track below…
