Mandy Kim Clinton, also known as Pearl Crush, is back with new material: “Bend Until U Break + 원주시” which takes a huge electronic leap from her previous release that we covered last year. “Bend Until U Break + 원주시” is much darker, bass-heavy, and will send you into a trance while you ponder the limits of love. The song cracks open with twinkling synths and Clinton’s voice cutting through the ambling bass.
“I’m trying to change” she laments, relating those ever-relatable questions of should you change for someone you love? Are you enough on as you are? We might change, bending, as she sings, until you break. Then you’re back to how you were in the beginning.
You should listen to this musical moment while under the stars, letting the music swell over you and sync up to your heartbeat. Nod along to the infectious bass and know that you are enough. Clocking in at just over five minutes, the song still leaves you wanting more.
