Set to release her debut album, ‘Dreaming In Slow Motion’, next month, Danielle Lewis has released the video for her latest single, ‘Slow, Sad And Real’.

With the track focussed on her effected voice, the instrumentation highlights her vocal performance, accenting the drama and tension she builds throughout the song.

“‘Slow, Sad And Real’ brings to light the array of emotions, thoughts and dreams I’ve felt that have sometimes conflicted within”, she says of the single. “It’s the desire to resist suppression and embrace every part of the human emotional state. The lyrics play between conflicting states, eventually resolving to a place of strength and realness in embracing feeling deeply”.

Of the album as a whole, she goes on: “‘Dreaming In Slow Motion’ captures a sequence of my thoughts and emotions floating through my mind, particularly from my early 20s. It holds moments of growth and awareness. The album was written across a crucial part of growth for me, so it feels very retrospective but present at the same time. It’s helped me capture the radiance in those reflections”.

‘Dreaming In Slow Motion’ is out on 19 Nov. Watch the video for ‘Slow, Sad And Real’ here:
