LA-based singer-songwriter and guitarist Leah Capelle has returned with heavy-hitter single and video for “on accident,” a violently honest song about mistakes and the inevitable aftermath. Balancing the line between alternative-pop and hard rock, Capelle wails over a massive punk-rock stack as she begs, “did I hurt you? You know I didn’t mean it… Did I hurt you on accident?”
The release arrives as the third single off Leah Capelle’s forthcoming full-length album entitled triptych due out April 3, 2020 via The Orchard/Little Cabin Entertainment.
Leah Capelle elaborates on the new single: “‘on accident’ is a very vulnerable track – though enhanced by the visceral drum arrangement and pulsating synth parts, its a meditation on weakness at its core. It’s difficult to accept your faults, your selfish habits, your flaws – and even harder to ask for forgiveness in light of those flaws. But there is strength in brutal yet tender self-awareness.” The video for “on accident” is part two of her visual series and the prequel to part one, “know me better.” Filmed in the same location and featuring the talent from part one, Capelle and her partner devolve from veiled contentment to an explosive, chaotic fight that is paralleled by their counterparts expressing the true, raw emotions of each scene. As the song escalates, so too does the intensity of the argument and the uninhibited push and pull of the dance. “The connection between the two videos becomes very clear when watching them back to back,” Capelle explains. “‘on accident’ is what happened – the descent into madness; and ‘know me better’ is what happened after – the seven stages of grief.”
