September 17th marked the release of Jillian Lake’s new single XVII. It’s a number that’s connected to many events throughout her life and one which she’s inked on her skin to keep those memories alive, both good and bad.
On the single, she offered:
‘XVII’ is a song about grief, and finding yourself all messed up in the aftermath just watching the world go on around you. A lot of floor-laying, a lot of driving down endless gravel roads, and a lot of shouting into the abyss. When you lose the sense of yourself and even breathing is hard. It’s a song about trying to find your footing again.
