pure xtc Is Queen of The Pity Party With New Song “Fall Apart”

Inspiration can strike at any moment, even when it feels like everything is going wrong. For example, take pure xtc’s new single Fall Apart. The artist was at a dark point when a friend said something that spoke to her.

“Last September, I was feeling extremely down”, she says. I hadn’t toured as much as I had planned. I felt like I wasn’t doing enough, and I was financially struggling. Being present amidst all of this felt like a Herculean task. I took some time to just focus on being human, without forcing any creative output. During that time, I was hanging out with a friend who was also navigating the challenges of being a young adult post pandemic. We had a venting session, and when I asked about her weekend plans, she replied, “I’m just gonna rot in my apartment.” That hit me hard, I quickly jotted that line down in my notes app.

When I finally returned to my studio, the first verse lyrics poured out of me, and the music quickly followed. I remember feeling that excitement and spark for music that I was so afraid I had lost. That euphoria helped me produce a handful of new songs that I’m beyond excited to release this year!”

Accompanying the new song is a short film set for release on March 20th. Throughout 2024 pure xtc will release a series of short films that will culminate with her debut album. Fans can follow the music and short films via social media and purextcmusic.com
