Girlpool — the Los Angeles duo comprised of Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker — release the title track of their forthcoming album, which drops on Feb. 1. The slow-burning record follows the three previously released singles: “Hire,” “Lucy’s,” and “Where You Sink.”

“Everything’s overrated,” sings Tividad. “I’m watching from too close / I’ll take one ticket to heaven / Dress up as the Holy Ghost.”

Discussing the song, Tividad says “‘What Chaos is Imaginary’ is a song very close to my heartmind… closer than most. I wrote it at the most vulnerable point I have ever had thus far in my life. I was living very far from ‘home’ and not taking the best care of myself on any level… no matter what I did, I was getting into situations that were emotionally, spiritually and physically putting me at some type of risk.”

“These situations culminated in me having horrific PTSD (I didn’t realize it was this until long after) during which I found it completely impossible to imagine living beyond the time I was in,” he continues. “The ‘present moment’ was impossible to even begin to participate in-there was very nearly a white noise over all interactions and I couldn’t focus in any social situations unless I somehow found a way to be in my wrong mind. This song is about reckoning with this-trying to find a path to forgiving myself, attempts to redevelop a relationship with the world where I could find some illusion of ‘safety’ and belief in the fact that I could ultimately take care of myself.”

What Chaos Is Imaginary follows up Girlpool’s last full-length album, 2017’s Powerplant. Listen to “What Chaos Is Imaginary” above.
