Katie Crutchfield’s southern roots are undeniable. The name of her solo musical project Waxahatchee comes from a creek not far from her childhood home in Alabama and seems to represent both where she came from and where she’s going. Katie Crutchfield has been nothing but honest as the artist Waxahatchee . Her careful words carry keen insight — and she writes sharp songs to match. Waxahatchee’s fourth album, Out In The Storm, takes a hard look not just at broken relationship, but also at the spiraling aftermath.

“I don’t want to call it a break-up record, but it was a romantic and professional relationship that fell apart,” Crutchfield says. “I had to end it, and it rippled throughout every little corner of my life.”

“Silver,” the album’s first single out today with a video directed by Catherine Elicson, is the sound of the world crashing down around you — and that humbly recognizes that “the whole world keeps turning.” The guitar-driven track has a diaphanous sheen that unfolds in slow motion, but with weight that sparks a difficult epiphany.

Out In The Storm comes out July 14th on Merge Records. Waxahatchee goes on tour with The New Pornographers through America starting April 18th.
