Naima Bock has shared a new single called ‘Campervan’, the latest offering from her forthcoming debut record Giant Palm. The song, which follows earlier cuts ‘Toll’, ’30 Degrees’, ‘Every Morning’, and the title track, arrives with an accompanying video directed by Cassidy Hanse. Check it out below.
Speaking about the track, Bock explained in a press release:
‘Campervan’ is another collaboration between myself and producer Joel Burton. This is a song about the falling apart of a relationship and the bleak impact that it seems to have on us as humans and the renewal that it can provide afterwards. We thought it would be fun to approach the song from a more tongue in cheek perspective; Joel’s arrangements draw on western cowboy nostalgia as well as orchestral influences such as ‘Concierto de Aranjuez’ by Joaquin Rodrigo and ‘Pure Imagination’ from the 1971 Willly Wonka film. The process of writing the song was a joyful and creative one, turning something depressing into something that doesn’t take itself too seriously whilst preserving the poignancy and melodrama of heartache.
Giant Palm is due out July 1 via Sub Pop/Memorials of Distinction.
