PiPEllA Releases New Song “Castles (Scene 3)”
Nashville-based cinematic rock singer-songwriter PiPELLA released a new song “Castles (Scene 3)” on May 18, 2023.
The song is taken from her upcoming debut project “PiPEllA: The Worlds Traveler”, following “Robot Overlord (Scene 2)” released back in March.
The track was written by Abigail Wynans, and produced by Chris Doss.
A poignant tale of disillusionment and shattered happily ever afters, the song conveys the nuanced heartbreak-to-anger trajectory that comes with realizing that the happy ending was nothing more than a hollow facade built on an illusory fantasy.
PiPELLA said, “I wrote this song for Cinderella from Into The Woods and Lagertha from Vikings and all of my favorite heroines who get the worse end of the deal but never really got to rage about it.”
She continued, “Her trust and the illusions she's built up are broken slowly as the story progresses. That's why the song is not overwhelmingly passionate; I wanted it to break your heart in a way that's subtle.”
The previous song “Robot Overlord” is about identifying as a member of the asexual community while fighting for the representation they deserve in order to strengthen the community.
She said of the song, “I had been called a robot more than once by people outside the Ace spectrum because they couldn't fathom that a real person might not experience sexual attraction.”
