After sharing his infectious new single "Weakness" earlier this month, rising Irish singer Tim Chadwick is back with a video for the track.
While there's clearly a lot going on in the world right now, the newly released clip, which is premiering today on Variance, is the perfect antidote. Shot on an Alexa Mini & Hi8 at The Chocolate Factory in Dublin, the video sees Chadwick surrounded by flowers and fruit, while his co-star (a tiny, charcoal-colored kitten) steals the spotlight.
It's fitting because the song is about accepting the things which break down the walls in your life. And as we previously mentioned, the song has an arguably HAIM-meets-Troye-Sivan vibe, which might also come as no surprise, as those are two of Chadwick's inspirations, as are Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Years & Years and more.
“There is a big change in the sound this time around. But the content has and will always remained the same. Personal and honest experiences," says Chadwick of the shift in his new material, which finds him breaking from the singer-songwriter confines.
He adds: “I think in the last year I’ve really focused on who I want to be as an artist, rather than just sticking to the singer-songwriter genre. I wanted to create music that I listened and danced to and didn’t want to be held down with labels."
The new video comes ahead of a handful of shows Chadwick is playing this month, including The Great Escape festival in England.
