Annie Dressner by Rose Petal Deer (Emily Katherine Reader).
We introduced you to singer songwriter Annie Dressner earlier this year, and now she’s back with a new single Don’t Feel The Same, accompanied by a lo-fi video that suits her conversational style down to the ground. Here Annie explains her inspiration and process.
“I never like to give away too much about what specifically inspires my songs, but to put it in two words, the song is about: unrequited love. Rather than writing from the perspective of a forlorn lover, I thought it would be interesting to write about someone who wished they could love someone back, but couldn’t. That’s where the title Don’t Feel The Same comes from. My conclusion is that love is weird.
Normally when I write a song the music and lyrics come at the same time. This time it was a bit different. I sat down with a pen in hand and put lyrics to the melody.
Lost in a Car: Annie Dressner by Briony Jose.
I thought it would be really fun to make a quirky video for this song, but unfortunately I had no budget. I found myself at home alone on a Friday night and decided “tonight’s the night.” I took out my iPhone and danced around my house for about two hours and edited it. Five hours later, after losing all of the the footage and reshooting it, my video was born.”
Well, we think it looks brilliant. Ain’t modern technology great? You can preorder Don’t Feel The Same by Annie Dressner right here.
