RACHEL BOBBITT SHARES BANDAGES
NEW TRACK FEATURED ON UPCOMING EP THE CEILING COULD COLLAPSE OUT JULY 15 VIA FANTASY

TORONTO, ON – June 30, 2022 – Today, emerging Toronto-based artist, Rachel Bobbitt, shares Bandages, another dazzling, deeply personal track from her upcoming EP, The Ceiling Could Collapse, out July 15th on Fantasy Records. Listen to Bandages and pre-order The Ceiling Could Collapse.
“Bandages is about the helpless feeling of loving someone who is struggling,” Bobbitt explains. “It’s a very hard pill to swallow that sometimes loving someone is not enough to make them better.”
Her piercing and profound new EP, The Ceiling Could Collapse, (which Bobbitt co-produced with Justice Der and was mixed by GRAMMY-nominee, Jorge Elbrecht,) centres on the cycles of life and how we find meaning in extremes: pain, joy, wonder, and love.
“Every woman I’ve ever talked to is in some amount of pain almost all the time,” she says. “That could be physical pain, emotional pain, familial pain, but it’s there in cycles.”
In addition to music, Bobbitt draws those same feelings from horror films—and pulled the title to this EP while reading the script to 2018’s Hereditary. A deleted scene offered a revelation: “We need to accept that we can’t have our minds fixated on all these things that could happen, and we need to move on—but also the ceiling could just collapse,” Bobbitt says and laughs.
More than unpredictability, it’s the endless repetition of life that suggests both things are true, that there’s no reason to worry and something terrible is about to happen. The ceiling collapse may be inescapable, but once it’s gone, there’s just more room for the sunrise to peek through.
Bobbitt is hitting the road this summer for solo shows and dates supporting Men I Trust and Bad Bad Hats, and will also be playing her first headlining show at home in Toronto, on August 9th at The Drake Hotel. See below for all dates.
