Just in time for spooky season, Maggie Lindemann dropped her brand-new single “Scissorhands” for Halloween lovers and music fans alike. Lindemann describes Edward Scissorhands as “one of [her] favorite movies for a long time.”
“It’s such a cute, quirky movie, but if you really dig deeper, you realize the struggles he faced with society’s norms and his inability to get too close to the people he loved without hurting them,” she exclusively tells Alternative Press. “I feel like I really relate with that, and the concept was just too good to not write about.”
In fact, the heavy guitar, metal scraping sounds and soft vocals all uniquely complement her raw lyrics about her own insecurities and desire for love but being unsure how to attain it (“Hold you closer, but I can’t/I don’t wanna kill a man,” she sings).
This hard-hitting alt-rock track will appear on her forthcoming EP, PARANOIA, due out Jan. 22. Listen to ” Scissorhands” below and read more on altpress.com.
