Edith Crash just released a video for “Ton Ombre,” out November 1 on her new album, Frenzy, via Stormy Wave Records.
In something of a departure from her last album, Partir, a meditation on the loss of her mother, Crash has worked some upbeat notes into the dark electronic web of Frenzy. Songs ranging from the melodic ambiance of cuts like “Keepsake” to the utterly danceable “Hope” illustrate an artist emerging from grief, inspired to seize every moment, embracing the nuances of the title.
“Frenzy here is about an emotional agitation going from extreme euphoria to madness, flirting with all the feelings in between in an unstoppable whirl, craving to devour every second of life,” says Crash. “Before writing this record, I literally witnessed the passing of two of the most important persons in my life; this and the energy of L.A. really shaped the songs. This city can be a tornado of so much doing and achieving; this is also such an extreme place where the most beautiful and horrifying stories coexist.” The love song, Guárdame, was written for her wife Florencia P. Marano, the photographer behind the album’s cover art and director of accompanying video for Ton Ombre.
The song “Ton Ombre” was co-produced by EdithCrash and Jeff Berner (Psychic TV) and Alain Johannes (Queens Of The Stone Age, PJ Harvey, Eleven, Mark Lanegan) collaborated on the track playing additional guitars.
