Totally Mild release first single and video from new album Her
Melbourne lush pop quartet Totally Mild have just revealed the first single and video from their upcoming second album Her.
Today Tonight is two minutes thirty seconds of soaring pop bliss, with a video directed by KEWL’s Tobias Willis, referencing classics of faded glamour and isolation like Sunset Boulevard and Woman Under the Influence.
About the song, singer Elizabeth Mitchell says “Written during a long period of unemployment, Today Tonight is quite literally me passing the days waiting for my girlfriend to come home from work. Sinking into the kind of depression that comes from doing nothing when you have the time to do whatever you want, the guilt of unproductivity. The house becomes a trap, you’re not interesting enough to leave it anyway.”
Director Tobias Willis adds: “After hearing the track and the initial concepts from the band I was thrilled when I was approached to make the video. I really enjoy any opportunity to incorporate that classic Hollywood cinema aesthetic into my work, films from that era are some of my favourites.”
Chapter is thrilled to be releasing Her in February 2018 on LP, CD and digital. Her follows on from Totally Mild’s acclaimed 2015 debut Down Time. More details soon!
