Honeycrush Experiences Emotional Cleansing on New Single “Thorn”

The futility of letting go

Honeycrush’s latest offering, “Thorn” depicts the ritual of ridding yourself of grief for good — or at least attempting to. There’s a stillness and a contemplativeness in the song that singer/songwriter Alexandra Antonopoulos (aka Honeycrush) wanted the video to support. The story told is one of letting go, and when the pages of her (real) journal are being ripped out and burnt, it’s being done as a way to completely erase the past. Honeycrush wanted there to be a rebirth in this story, though, which is illustrated by the presence of water. As the video reaches it’s climax, Antonopoulos poses a question to the viewer:

What if you do all the cleansing and all of the burning and it doesn’t work?

The second EP from alternative indie rock artist Honeycrush, (Alexandra Antonopoulos) The Drowning Room (out now) tells a story of tragic love with a twist: What if you were the unreliable partner all along? What kind of damage can you do to another with your carelessness? And what happens if you care too much?

Written over the course of four days during a bleak midwinter, The Drowning Room is a sparse and stripped back vehicle for singer-songwriter and producer Antonopoulos to examine the past. Written, recorded and produced entirely by Alexandra in her home in Brooklyn, its three tracks chart the course of a doomed love. With bare bones arrangements that support Antonopoulos’s vulnerable vocal performance, the veil between listener and storyteller is thin by design.
