CASSIDY KING Shares New Single “Safe Places”

Today Ohio’s Cassidy King has revealed a new single, “Safe Places,” which exemplifies King’s penchant for creating a song that is at once confessional and ear-wormy. She notes “‘Safe Places’ was inspired by a poem I wrote about dating a girl who wasn’t fully ready to commit because she had a boyfriend. She was with us both at the same time and we had no idea. I was overwhelmed by the feeling of him taking credit for every smile that ran across her face. He was the human she could display and I was the being she was hiding. He was the shell, the face, and body but I was underneath the surface making her feel. To everyone in her world I was just a friend because our love always had to be hidden. The infatuation I craved by chasing a straight girl ended up turning into a love that tore me apart because I could never fully have her. I felt myself breaking more and more everyday because I kept hoping she would wake up one day and choose me but to this day she’s still with him.”The video was directed by Peter Theisen Amlie and you can watch it here

Along with TyC, Cassidy has been working with Mike Tuccillo [c, Ingrid Michaelson], NYDGE, JestyBeatz, Ben Schigel, and Nicole Cohen. And while she has been compared to Jade Bird and girl in red, King’s own brand of indie-electro pop is one all her own.
