Chastity Belt

Seattle’s Chastity Belt are offering a second slice from their eponymous album in the form of single, “Elena.”  “Elena” is a reflective and downbeat number that recalls 90’s music at times.  Elena is awash in guitar jangle and bassist Annie Truscott says of the song: “Over the past year, we all read and loved Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels. We individually related to the ways in which the main character’s sense of self is inextricably linked to her desire for love and validation both from lovers and friends. The overlapping voices on top of the whimsical wave-like instrumentals captures the universal feeling of having a conversation with yourself about yourself.”
