Having broken through earlier this year, grunge-pop musician Blondshell is continuing to build momentum with her excellent new single, Sepsis.

The artist (real name Sabrina Teitelbaum) explains of the track: “In the thick of COVID, I became obsessed with Hole’s song Doll Parts and it inspired me to write something cathartic and pissed. I wrote Sepsis as a way of getting anger out – anger towards people who have treated me as if I didn’t deserve very much care and anger towards myself for accepting that treatment. I wanted to create some accountability with this song and also sing about the counterproductive nature of trying to outrun loneliness.

“Most importantly I wanted to give myself permission to be as dramatic as possible and say aloud that I'm afraid bad feelings might actually kill me.”

Watch the video for Sepsis below:

Blondshell is set to make her UK live debut next month, on September 26, at new London venue The Lower Third (Outernet).
