I hope people resonate with the concept of finding their ‘Resting Power’ – maybe they don’t have to stay in a shitty relationship, or they can honour their needs, and the process of doing so doesn’t have to be so serious. I wanted the song to feel light-hearted and fun, because that’s what self-love feels like to me.
“The music video explores feelings of isolation and paranoia due to being in lockdown. It was filmed with assistance from my housemates in Melbourne, Australia. We had to work within the restrictions of our COVID-19 lockdown in order to make the film clip happen, which meant doing everything DIY. We turned our entire house into a studio and invested in learning new skills such as green screening in order to make our concept come to life. This film clip was ended up being heaps of fun to make and in a strange way, has kept me sane, despite the film clip exploring the contrary.”
