Seattle-based singer/songwriter/classically-trained cellist and illustrator Jeremiah Moon is debuting a new Brent Driscoll-directed music video for ‘Housesitting’ a track off his debut EP ‘Sputnik,’ out now via Enci Records. Read our review here.
In regards to the track, Jeremiah says,
“Housesitting is a song about the moment when a relationship starts to end. Not about love ending, but about things growing apart; a fork in the road turning into a chapter heading. It’s about the strange truth that sometimes it’s easier to see clearly and feel deeply — even, or maybe especially the good parts — once you’ve already made up your mind to leave.”
Of the video, he adds,
“Brent and I shot this video at a friend’s treasured family beach house out in the San Juan Islands. We wanted to capture the eerie feeling of being in a stranger’s house – a home, saturated with years of memories that aren’t your own. Your ears become very attentive to small sounds: the refrigerator kicking in, the low hiss of the rain, pipes running beneath the floorboards. The feeling, not of a presence, but an absence so palpable you can almost taste it. Alone but not alone – make yourself at home.”
Moon’s haunting vocals, decorated with some gorgeous soft vibrato, float gently as his cello dances with the quiet cacophony of percussion. It’s mesmerising like the sound of rain and just as beautiful to listen to.
