Kaity Dunstan (aka CLOVES) is opening up about her battles with anxiety and depression on her newly released single "Nightmare."
The brooding, cinematic new cut, produced by none other than Hudson Mohawke, arrived Wednesday along with news the London-based Aussie artist will release her sophomore album Nightmare on Elmfield Road on May 21. The record is said to offer a glimpse into the singer's inner monologue as she embarks on a mental health journey for the first time, with help from Dua Lipa collaborator Clarence "Coffee" Jr. as well as Unknown Mortal Orchestra's Jake Portrait.
“'Nightmare' is about being gaslit by your own brain,” says CLOVES. “ I think a lot of the time when people talk about gaslighting they are touching on how it feels to be manipulated by others; I wanted 'Nightmare' to represent how it feels to be getting that same kind of toxicity from conversations with yourself.”
