Squirrel Flower, the project of singer-songwriter Ella Williams, returned with her sophomore album Planet (i) last year via Polyvinyl, her quick follow-up to 2020’s I Was Born Swimming.

Last week she brought her tour in support of the record to New York for a headlining performance at Mercury Lounge (days before a show at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right), which saw her bring out special guest – and fellow rising talent Tomberlin – to join in on “Deluge in the South.”

Our photographer Kevin McGann was there to capture photos from her set, along with opener Addy. Find photos from both performances found in the gallery below.
