Chelsea Lankes - Paralyzed

Texan-born, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Chelsea Lankes returns with her new single, "Paralyzed", which also serves as the third track following "Home" and "Bullet" to be lifted from her forthcoming self-titled debut EP, due out on April 8th via B3SCI Records.

Beginning with hushed piano, misty synths, and samples of seaside birds, the track eases in as Lankes opens up about a burgeoning love, revealing their intimate moments as she sings "sitting so close, your leg touches mine, the way you hold back, I can tell it's a sign, a sign / when we stayed up til 5 and stared at the ceiling, laughed about nothing, I could tell it was real, was real." And after reassuring her beau on the sensual chorus, it's the first-kiss of a bridge that spins the intimate track into the indie pop stratosphere, as Lankes leaves listeners transfixed once again by her alluring auteur-meets-pop star prowess.

Speaking on the track, Chelsea says:

"I love this song because of how honest and vulnerable it is - describing all the moments and emotions you have when you realize you've met someone you know is going to change your life. It's never been easy for me to express how I feel in situations where I know I have something to lose. Everyone is scared of getting hurt but having been there and taken the chance on someone and fallen in love - it’s worth getting past all of your heart's reservations regardless of how things transpire."
