Brisbane based folk singer/songwriter Angharad Drake (ang-ha-rad) has revealed her new video for ‘Baby‘ (our Song of the Day) which is released as a single and will feature on her upcoming album. The song is both haunting and melancholic as the lyrics unfold the turmoil and confusion in a relationship coming to an inevitable end.
The songs protagnist unveils her torment wrought upon her through the selfishness of love… “Baby it’s a lonely place in between your love and your vanity.” The heavy air of loneliness and sadness reflected in the lyrics and music is heightened by the work of Sen Wong and Esteban Rivera in the video. The house scenes, in particular, are filled with an atmosphere that you could cut with a knife while the lone brooding walks in the outdoors give a sense of that internal torment growing to its ultimate climax – one of eventual release in whatever form that may take.
