South London-based band Dahlia Sleeps recently signed to Beatnik Creative, and with it comes the release of their video to Storm and the news that their latest EP, ‘Love, Lost’ will be out on December 3rd. ‘Storm’ is a beautifully atmospheric and haunting piece of music. The video accompanies it perfectly as it brings out the emotional rawness of the song. Watch it above.
Speaking about the video, singer Lucy Hill said:
“The directors Ruby and Leo did such a beautiful job exploring the emotions that ‘Storm’ brings up. We wanted to keep the video super simple when translating those emotions onto screen – they are such a universal struggle but they play out differently in each of us. I hope the video captures that for people.”
ABOUT THE SONG
Written about the blurred boundaries that we so often encounter when two hearts or two bodies meet, it’s a song that was formed initially on the piano in Lucy Hill’s living room. Luke Hester, the band’s producer then built the beautiful instrumental piece around it the very next day. Hester’s haunting, skeletal electronic production, paired with Lucy Hill’s delicate, soulful vocal make for a stunning partnership – and signifies a new dawn for the band.
“It’s a song that feels truly us – I feel this comfort in it that I don’t think I’ve felt before. I’ve been reading a tonne of poetry in the last year or so and that’s massively inspired me to step up in my writing. When you’re telling a story that’s important to you, each word has to count for something. I think that philosophy runs through everything we’ve created on this upcoming EP.” Lucy Hill
