A pensive, delicate track about her struggles with homesickness, Dublin-based musician & performance artist Hilary Woods has shared her new single ‘Inhaler’. The track is taken from her upcoming debut solo album Colt, which is set for release via Sacred Bones Records on 8th June.
“‘Inhaler’ is a response to a relenting absence that was constantly present,” Woods explains about her new single. “It’s a song about homesickness, longing; an attempt to find new ways of being in the wake of separation.” She explores these emotions through electronic and classical sounds, with her tentative, mysterious vocals floating calmly above these elements.
Woods directed the accompanying music video for ‘Inhaler’ herself, working alongside cinematographer and long-time collaborator Joshua Wright and dancer/choreographer Justine Cooper. With her multi-talented approach to creating art and extensive musical experience (including playing as a member of JJ72), Hilary Woods should definitely be on your musical radar.
