Wallflower’s of the world, rejoice – It seems as if you guys have your anthem for 2015. Newcomer Alessia Cara has enjoyed a buzz recently after her track “Here” (which nobly samples Portishead’s classic “Glory Box“) blew up on Soundcloud and Spotify.
Today we got fitting visuals for the track, apparently re-creating a party she attended which inspired the song (with the video including many of the original partygoers). The track is a moody celebration of social anxiety, with the Aaron A directed video smoothly highlighting the experience of feeling alone in a crowd of people. The 18 year old Canadian reaches a hand to all those who feel unease at turn up events, and we’re glad she’s created something that transcends the generic depiction of crazed party scenes in music videos.
Alessia Cara is set to drop her debut album via Def Jam. Watch the video for “Here” above.
