Sophie Jamieson has released a new track, ‘Downpour’, alongside an accompanying video directed by herself and Ros Bullard. Check it out below.
The new song is lifted from Jamieson’s debut album Choosing, which is slated for release December 2 via Bella Union and was led by the single ‘Sink’. “This song came from a desperate need to fill a void I could not seem to fill myself,” the singer-songwriter explained in a statement. “I wanted to fix, and be fixed by somebody who was in no position to do so. I was blinded by this idea that they were the way out of my pain, and when they said no, the walls came tumbling in every time and I didn’t know how to hold them up.”
“The video was filmed at my local riverside in South East London,” Jamieson added. “I was fascinated by the movement of water and everything that changes its direction and its force. The way it both moves around, and pushes against everything it touches… even pushing against itself and eventually calming down. The way it has the ability to create space, and also to overwhelm, to drown.”
