Austin based artist, singer-songwriter and producer Nora Lilith has revealed the achingly beautiful new music video to compliment release ‘Misfed’. Recently signed to Majestic Casual, the young and talented musician has gifted us with her most raw and vulnerable release to date. Following on from the more upbeat offering ‘Buttons’, ‘Misfed’ is organic, deceptively simple and utterly breathtaking.
With cascading vocals, detailed intimately in Nora’s soft and gentle tone, she delicately breathes life into this moving piece of music, finding space between the expertly played keys. Her storytelling is authentic, brave and incredibly unique as ‘Misfed’ delves deep, exploring the shadow of ones self.
Now with a visual representation to match, ‘Misfed’ takes on an even deeper meaning as Nora and another dance between each other, the balance of light and dark, good and bad so effortlessly depicted. Nora goes into great detail explaining the meaning behind the track and video,
“The lyrical meaning behind this song definitely falls into the same theme as many of my songs; an expression of awareness of lost and stolen pieces of myself and a desperation for them to be found. It’s all the things my heart has been deprived of, and all the terror associated with entering the world with those wounds. The music video for this track showcases an angle of this: the frictions between various pieces of oneself: the judgement, shame, and mental contortions one experiences in the wake of controlling and being controlled by one’s own shadow selves. The end of the video represents an untethering from this and a liberated entrance into the world.”
“This track was a pivotal one in my evolution as an artist, especially as a vocalist and lyricist. I remember around that time period I was really struggling to write lyrics in a way that intrigued me. When I paid too close attention to the poeticism or emotional accuracy of my own lyrics while writing them, they always seemed to fall short for me.” – Nora Lilith
