SPELLLING explores her own youth with epic ballad “Boys At School”

“Boys At School” is taken from SPELLLING‘s upcoming album, The Turning Wheel, out June 25 on Sacred Bones Records.

Bay Area artist Chrystia Cabral aka SPELLLING recently announced the release of her third album with the theatrical and orchestral single “Little Deer.” Recorded with an ensemble of 31 collaborating musicians, while dedicating more attention to the lyrics, the self-produced project is one of high ambition. Today, she continues in this direction with the epic, 7 minute-long new ballad, “Boys At School,” whose goal is to “step back into my younger self, my teenage self to voice my angst, desires and disillusionments.”

“I knew when I created the main motif on the piano that it was striking something really raw and both delicate and fierce,” she added. “The notes just immediately transported me to the era of my youth, of this time when you are really beginning to confront the mirror of yourself to the outside world.”
