With the release of their monumental The Wrack Line, Your Heart Breaks (a.k.a. Clyde Petersen) demonstrates their careful observation of a life well-lived. The song is a collection of collaborations, chronicling Petersen’s misadventures in the freak fold world. Petersen is also an accomplished filmmaker, and in our interview they share how these interests — combined with their activism — work to create a one-of-a-kind experience at their shows: one where everyone can feel welcomed.
