Her latest single, “Underground,” is a bustling instrumental centered around an immaculate violin performance. The four-and-half-minute single is a somber and enticing introduction to Stirling’s highly-anticipated upcoming album, Artemis. The song is backed by driving progressive synthesizers and captivating percussive rhythmic instrumentation, which comfortably sits beneath Lindsey’s beaming lead violin. The video for “Underground” is set in a futuristic dystopia and features neon lights, acrobatic dancers and of course none other than Lindsey herself.
Tackling themes of overcoming obstacles, and fighting through life’s downfalls to reclaim one’s happiness and strength, Stirling tells the story of Artemis, Goddess of the Moon, and uniquely draws parallels to her own personal experiences. When speaking about the new album, Artemis, Lindsey notes: “There have been times of my life where I have felt completely overcome by the “shadow” of grief, or depression; I felt like I’d never feel full happiness again. But the moon has taught me a powerful lesson. Just because she gets covered in shadow doesn’t mean she isn’t still there… and that she won’t fight back to reclaim her full light. Artemis is the goddess of the moon. This album tells her story; it tells my story; I think it tells everyone’s story.”
