Having been named as one of The Guardian’s ‘Artists For 2020’, and being championed by the likes of Iggy Pop and Alex Kapranos, North London based artist Meggie Brown has previously charmed our ears with the scuzzy energy of ‘Dusty Smells‘. Now, with their new EP set for release next month, they have shared a brand new video to accompany their stirring single, ‘Angel Like You’.
Propelled by twinkling hooks and a lilting energy, ‘Angel Like You’ offers an exquisite reflection on the beauty of intimacy. With its poignant lyricism, it oozes a captivating allure as it ripples with an effervescent emotion and chiming musicality. Maintaining Brown’s deadpan-yet-poetic ruminations, with shades of the likes of Aussie favourite Courtney Barnett, it flows with a dreamy, majestic haze.
Of the beautiful accompanying video, director Sim Gray explains:
“A psychedelic cult, fairytale, astral projection, daydream – a queer, shapeshifting collaboration with Sim Gray, Bianca Scout, The Creature Fleur, Shivani Thussu, Sokora Xilber and Lucy Marie. Wildflowers on the horizon, dancing through each season, whatever the weather. Softness gets crushed into dust, or lost, guided away from the crossroads. A zone of flowers flattened down, the pathway into a shadowed forest.”
‘Angel Like You’ is taken from Meggie Brown’s upcoming EP Home. Written and recorded with Sunny Robertson at Float Rock Home Studio, with backing band Forrest Flowers and long time music companion and drummer Kayleigh Cheer, it explores themes of gender identity and reflects on Brown’s feelings surrounding recently coming out as Transgender.
Home is set for release on 24th September.
