Track Of The Day: Hilary Woods – ‘Inhaler’

Dublin-based musician & performance artist Hilary Woods has shared ‘Inhaler’, the first single from her upcoming debut solo album Colt, which is set to be released via Sacred Bones Records on 8th June. It’s a pensive, delicate, melancholy track about her struggles with homesickness.

Speaking about ‘Inhaler’, Hilary says it’s “a response to a relenting absence that was constantly present. 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 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 playing as a member of JJ72, Hilary Woods should be on your eclectic radar.
