Toronto’s Caitlin Woelfle-O’Brien has shared a video for her new single as Blunt Chunks, “Part of Me.”
The track comes from Blunt Chunk’s forthcoming self-titled EP, out May 6th via Telephone Explosion Records. The tune features Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning on backing vocals and piano. It’s an intimate tune with soothing melodies. Directed by Woelfle-O’Brien and Emma Cosgrove, the accompanying visual
“I wrote this not long after being in Berlin about realizing how the people you love are inherently a part of you and how sometimes you want them to just get out of you,” Woelfle-O’Brien explains. “But also that you desperately want them to love you right and give you all the things you need… but then you realize you have to do the self-improvement on your own. I also think this song is kind of a narcissistic anthem… ‘me me me, I want this, blah blah blah’. It’s very self-involved and just a pleading cry to the heavens to be a better person and have a better life and be loved.”

More on “Part of Me”:
“It’s got a real element of fantasy and desperation,” Woelfle-O’Brien adds. “I recorded a demo of it in the studio one night kind of free-form (I hadn’t figured out a structure yet so it was essentially improvised) and we just built the whole song on that recording! David had a wild idea near the end of the recording process to add a “choir”. We reached out to some amazing singers/musicians and they agreed to record at home and send it in! I’m seriously honored.”
In addition to “Part of Me,” Blunt Chunks features previously released singles “Natural Actors” and “BWFW.”
