Today Caught A Ghost mastermind Jesse Nolan tells us about their new song and video "Somehow," which comes from their brand new EP "Nightworks". Here is the story:
I was super depressed on my birthday when I wrote 'somehow.' Since I was 12 or 13 I've had an acute sense of my own mortality and the trajectory of my life around the time of my birthday. The reality is I'm a pretty cheerful person, but I get this hilariously profound adolescent sadness that 'settles in,' just about every February, which makes me feel that all my efforts are totally pointless and fills me with despair. I was feeling this way before heading out with a group of friends to celebrate and I picked up a guitar and Somehow just spilled out, in about 20 minutes, in it's complete form.
The video was fun to make, we just shot it off the cuff while I was visiting Tessa in Toronto, and then shot some more in Hudson, New York, where her family lives. We had the idea to use projections of the footage as a way to simulate memory. The song deals with the illusory and transitory nature of life so we wanted the video to reflect that.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and check out the new video here and learn more about the group right here!
