"At first I want you so // Then girl, you gotta' go // And I don't even know why I'm like that"
A while back I starred in a music video for a song written and performed by my good friend, Freddy Hale, and above you can see the result. ♡ Pretty sweet if I may say so myself!
Some of you have probably already seen and listened to it, which I'm really happy about, but I felt like sharing it on here as well. Recording this video was a lot of fun, despite the fact that I came home with what felt like a billion mosquito bites... In one of my scenes you can actually see a mosquito landing on my head (Did I get an itchy bite there, you may wonder? YES. Yes, I did. I noticed in the comments of the video that some people have already noticed it, but they just thought it was a regular fly, but I sure to know the god damn truth)!
When the instrumental for this song was made, I didn't yet live in Stockholm, so my friends took turns letting me stay at their place during the times I were there. I stayed at Freddy's sometime last year, and he asked me to lay some humming/harmonies on the song (which you can hear, if you listen to the intro and beginning of the verses). I didn't hear the instrumental being used for anything in a long time, so finally hearing it in a finished song now makes me feel kind of nostalgic, haha.
I'm glad this is what came of it though. It's a very good song and it gets stuck in my head faaar too easily.
The video is very interesting as well. I didn't quite catch exactly what my "role" was when we recorded it, but looking at it now it's really obvious to me. I'm love. Which gives new perspective to the ending of the video, doesn't it? I'll leave you to see for yourself, if you haven't yet.
Either way, it may sound incredibly biased, but I really love this song, and I'm so proud of my friend for getting this far in his music making, and for following his dreams. Supporting that in some way means a lot to me.
I truly wish you enjoy the video as much as I do, and as I did being in it! I'd be thrilled to know what you think about it.
Until next time,
