In January, Ella O'Connor Williams will launch her first full-length below the title Squirrel Flower. It's known as I Was Born Swimming , and we've already heard one monitor from it – the slow-burn surge of “Red Shoulder.” Right this moment, she's again with one other one, “Headlights.”
“Headlights” is a sparse, meditative monitor, primarily pushed by Williams ’vocals and flickering guitar notes. It’s a misty composition that sounds just like the form of headspace you enter whereas in transit, on a journey between issues that is likely to be meaningless or would possibly transform momentous. Seems, that’s the form of place Williams was in when he wrote it. Right here’s what she needed to say in regards to the monitor:
“Headlights” takes place in a second of solitary reflection; a look again and a look ahead. I wrote it on tour driving via the Pioneer Valley in Massachusetts in some heavy fog. Out of the blue I used to be conscious of the house the automotive was plummeting via, each bodily and temporal.
The music comes with a video directed by Bao Ngo, who described it as being “inspired by cheesy, classic imagery of actors riding in cars through LA – evoking glamor and sunshine.” Whereas nonetheless making an attempt to seize that outdated Hollywood vibe, Ngo and Williams transposed that iconography to chilly Massachusetts day, transferring nearer to the autumnal temper of “Headlights.” Test it out beneath.
