A gentle, hazy musing on trying to stay afloat in an unpredictable time, Northern Irish born, Berlin-based artist Party Fears (aka Maggie Devlin) has shared a new video to accompany her latest single ‘Time in Space’. Shot by and featuring Devlin herself and edited by James Byrne, the visuals reflect the track’s day-dreamy nature, giving listeners further insight Devlin’s ruminations on what it means to question your instincts.
“’Time in Space’ is a song about prioritising security over authenticity; not necessarily bad, but sometimes hard,” Devlin explains. “For this song, I did a bit of projecting, imagining selves beyond this self; maybe some of them more authentic than the me imagining them. It’s a weird year that calls for some light astral projection.” Released via Babywoman Records, ‘Time in Space’ is an otherwordly offering that stretches the boundaries of self-perception, but in true Party Fears style it remains charmingly optimistic.
“I see me living a lie / You see me doing alright” Devlin sings, gently exposing the duality that comes with living your best life online vs the struggle of day-to-day existence. Devlin’s close-ups and still-life-like shots in the video reflect this perfectly, as she muses about being somewhere else in the solar system – a thought many of us have most likely had throughout 2020.
