The Root Note

Bathtub cig is the intimate depression pop band of Hilary James. Born in a Minneapolis bedroom in 2017, it is an honest attempt at coping with her long struggle with mental health. Her new 2022 full length "Night Blindness" puts a positive sonic spin on lyrically-challenging songs that deal with depression, anxiety and other hard mental health issues. The resulting product is an incongruously joyous record that allows the listener to celebrate along with the difficulties and nuances of life- reveling in the fact that we often are able to find ourselves at a higher point after crawling out of the dust.”
