Told Slant, the solo recording project of Brooklyn songwriter Felix Walworth (they/them), has shared a video directed by V Haddad and shot by Emily Sprague for “Whirlpool,” the latest single from their anticipated album, Point the Flashlight and Walk.
Of the song and video Walworth says: “‘Whirlpool’ is about communication breakdowns, patterned, cyclical behavior, the kinds of relationships that render us incapable of giving and receiving care, and having nowhere else to turn. It’s about the impossibility of knowing something again once you’ve forgotten it.”
Known for their bare, down-tempo, guitar-driven arrangements and understated lyricism, Told Slant’s third full-length is their most complex work to date. The album weaves through hypnotic rhythms, tumbling piano, and delicate harp, continuously complemented by Walworth’s keen ability to evoke tangible intimacy through vocals and unconventional percussion.
