Following on from the release of his In Between EP earlier this year, Collington today premiered the music video for Trouble.
We asked him about the song’s origins, and he says, “This was the first song I wrote for the record. When I finished it I loved it and knew I wanted to write a record around it. For me, it was also the beginning of an honest conversation with myself. I went through one of the hardest years of my life and put my hands to the plow to try to get through it. A friend of mine used to say “the painting knows more than the painter.” With that in mind, I learned about myself from the song. I started to come to terms with how I was feeling inside despite me trying to blow through a difficult time. I took this song, along with four more demos and sent them to my producer, (Eric Owyoung) to see which he liked best. Sending the rough iPhone demos off in an email, I crossed my fingers that this song would stick out to him. I’m so glad it did.”
The music video can be seen below, where you can also pick up the Eric Owyoung (Future of Forestry) produced EP In Between. Our interview with him is also below.
