Misery Over Dispute


Waxahatchee returns with the new single ‘Misery Over Dispute’, released on 20 October 2013 via Wichita, the second to be taken from the highly acclaimed album Cerulean Salt.

The brilliant new video involves the multi-talented Katie Crutchfield doing a spot of tap dancing, no less. Having danced throughout her childhood, Katie always wanted to incorporate her favourite style, tap, into one of one of her videos.  Watch the stylish clip where Katie gets to combine two passions, dance and music :

Praise for Cerulean Salt:

‘This combination of musical innocence and lyrical experience draws you in... one that sounds just a little more epic with every play’ ‘Album of the Week’ The Observer
‘This is intimate, confident songwriting… Crutchfield’s lyrics are simultaneously starkly honest and tricksily complex’
‘Album Of The Week’ 4/5 Time Out
‘Truths rarely come as beautiful as this’ 8/10 NME
‘Crutchfield would no doubt laugh it off, but she’s already something of a star and, whatever direction she chooses to take, her potential seems boundless’ 4/5 Mojo
‘An intimacy and directness which will surely make Cerulean Salt one of 2013’s biggest albums… a lethally brilliant concoction’ 4/5 Q Magazine
‘The songs Katie Crutchfield sings as Waxahatchee are like scalpels; they slice through her life, her loves and her dreams’ The Guardian
‘Deceptively deep… if at first it seems like Cerulean Salt is a straight forward affair, it’s only because you haven’t taken the time to dive into its carefully constructed dramas and astonishingly stark confessions’ 8/10 Loud & Quiet
‘While it’s always been clear that she is a talented songwriter, Cerulean Salt represents an outstanding example of Crutchfield’s talent blossoming into one of US indie’s most vital and compelling voices’ 8/10 DIY Magazine
‘It’s something of a triumph’ The Fly
‘Katie Crutchfield has a way of delivering a line so casually that it takes a half-dozen listens to fully realise how devastating it is… the work of a songwriter skilled enough to make introspection seem not self-centred, but generous’ 8.4 Pitchfork
