Allie Crow Buckley, the Malibu-born, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter, has spent the last couple years quietly introducing the world to her starry-eyed sound, building up a loyal fanbase for her gorgeous live shows and racking up over 500,000 Spotify streams in the process. Buckley is kicking off 2019 in a big way, announcing her long-awaited debut release, a six-song EP called So Romantic, due out February 5. So Romantic features Jason Boesel (Jenny Lewis band, Rilo Kiley, Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band) on drums, Dylan Day (Jenny Lewis band) on guitar, and Grammy-nominated producer Mike Viola on guitar and Moog. Today Flood premiered Buckley’s dreamy new single “Cherry Stems,” alongside a stunning video.
“For me, getting caught up in the romances and fantasies are inevitable in the beginnings of a relationship – illusions are so easy to cast and get lost in,” says Buckley. “The video depicts a girl (yours truly), dancing alone in a house whimsically surrounded by bunnies and satins, but completely alone in the fantasy – and frankly, a little deranged.”
