Back in March, Katie Bennett of Free Cake For Every Creature released a nine-song demo collection recorded throughout Schenectady, NY, Mullica Hill, NJ, and Philadelphia, PA. Moving Songs is, as the title suggests, a documentation of a time in transition and uncertainty. The opening track, “Take On Me,” sets the album’s finding-your-footing tone. “My room is empty / Another year behind me / Sitting on the floor,” Bennett sings, faltering at first before steadily moving on. The song’s new video presents a distorted and saturated VHS tape of Bennett performing a series of activities: listening to a Devo record, reading a book, tying a shoe, and finally creating her own Energy Dome hat. Bennett consistently pours affection and attention to detail into her songs, and it is always exciting to see this love translated into her carefully crafted videos.
Moving Songs is out now via Double Double Whammy.
