Romy has shared the latest single from her debut solo album, Mid Air. Following ‘Strong’, ‘Enjoy Your Life’, and ‘Loveher’, the new song, ‘The Sea’, was produced by Fred again.. and Stuart Price. It arrives with a music video directed by Mollie Mills and featuring Romy and her wife, the director and photographer Vic Lentaigne. Check it out below.
“Romy always evokes this feeling of euphoria — and with this track specifically touching on wrestles of romance — through a queer lens, it intuitively evoked something about this kind of intertwinement of bodies, both in intimacy and in club culture,” Mills explained in a statement. “I had loosely referenced Louise Bourgeois’ sculpture ‘The Couple’ which actualizes that soul-rupturing entanglement of falling in love — and this is what we wanted to feel in these seascape scenes. This light, blissful, euphoric togetherness that happens alongside these memory slices of euro-heaven. There’s a power that can live in the simplicity of these domestic moments between two queer bodies too — when I think back to the loves of summers past, the memories I have are always the small details, a billowing curtain or a lovers hair after they shower.”
Mid Air comes out September 8 via Young.
