Alt-Pop Artist Cyprss Tackles Body Positivity In Latest Single, ‘The House I Hate’

CYPRSS‘ new single addresses her struggles with self-confidence and body positivity. 2020 sparked a conversation about mental health, and within that, the way we see our bodies. ‘A House I Hate’ tackles this issue head on, using the image of a house to represent her body. Sonically, the song is inspired by Billie Eilish’s eerie dark pop sound and contains a hip-hop inspired groove.

‘A House I Hate’ identifies the things CYPRSS wishes she could change about her physical being while also expressing a desperation to accept herself. After the second chorus, there is a an “ear-wrenching explosion of synthesizer sounds” that CYPRSS says “resembles the intense energy of animosity I felt towards my body when writing this song”.

Cyprss says: “My favorite thing about this song is that, though it is honest about the pain of self-hatred, it doesn’t end there. As I’ve been working the steps of recovery in my own life, it has changed my perspective of myself. Am I always super confident and never struggle now? No. But I’m learning to silence the negative voices in my head and give power to the healthy ones.”

‘A House I Hate’ ends with the thought that perhaps healing doesn’t come from covering up or changing our bodies, but rather from changing the way we see ourselves.

CYPRSS has always been an advocate for mental health through her music. Her signature song ‘Underworld’ dives into a place of “ice-cold terror”, describing the experience of someone in the midst of deep depression and anxiety.

The name CYPRSS is inspired by the strength and resilience of cypress trees which can grow and thrive in very harsh environments.

Beth Crowley Shares Emotional Ballad, ‘Storm Chaser’

On the heels of her last single, ‘Cry’ and with over 20 million streams on Spotify, BETH CROWLEY follows up with her new single and lyric video ‘Storm Chaser’.

Rumbling thunder and a piano melody opens ‘Storm Chaser’ before Crowley pours her heart out while reminiscing about a love that could only occur once in a lifetime. The emotional ballad follows the story of someone so tormented by the past that they can’t even imagine a future that compares.

Speaking of her latest single, Beth says: ‘Storm Chaser’ was inspired by the Alexander Graham Bell quote: “When one door closes, another one opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” I thought about how sometimes we are not so far down a path that we couldn’t imagine what it would have been like to have chosen differently. This song is from the perspective of someone that is daydreaming about an ex-lover that parted ways with her, and she is wondering if she will always be longing for what they could have had.”
