Blondshell Shares New Single “Sepsis”

Recording and performing under the name Blondshell, Sabrina Teitelbaum has quickly put herself on the map with the release of her first two singles this summer: her debut “Olympus,” and last month’s “Kiss City”.  Today, new single “Sepsis,” once again exemplifying her incredible songcraft through tension-building soft-to-loud transitions. Raw and anthemic, its brutally honest lyrics cover therapy, toxic men, and ‘getting saved by validation’ – but with an optimism that things can get better if you ask for what you deserve in a relationship.

The video for “Sepsis” was shot in Los Angeles on a Super-8 camera and directed by Seann Bryan. Of the single, Teitelbaum shares, “In the thick of COVID, I became obsessed with Hole’s song ‘Doll Parts’ and it inspired me to write something cathartic and pissed. I wrote ‘Sepsis’ as a way of getting anger out – anger towards people who have treated me as if I didn’t deserve very much care and anger towards myself for accepting that treatment. I wanted to create some accountability with this song and also sing about the counterproductive nature of trying to outrun loneliness. Most importantly I wanted to give myself permission to be as dramatic as possible and say aloud that I’m afraid bad feelings might actually kill me.”
