We are truly excited to premiere the new video from Zander Hawley entitled “Redcoats” today. The visually pleasing video follows Zander over a few days while recording “Redcoats” and is a perfect accompaniment to the lush track that features gentle guitar and sweeping violin. “Redcoats” immediately pulls at your heartstrings with Hawley’s soulful lyrics, which are sung with a sense of loss and pain, but from a place of acceptance, which we can only admire. The gorgeous tune is off Zander’s upcoming EP called I Invented Time Travel, which is due out on 5-15-20 and we can’t wait to hear more.
“The Redcoats video is a hybrid BTS/music video showcasing the creation of I INVENTED TIME TRAVEL and the Los Angeles – Seattle – Los Angeles road trip Mason, Joey and I took to make it happen. All of the songs on the EP come from a really personal, reflective and delicate place, Redcoats especially, so it was wonderful to have two people I trust so much with me to document the songs coming to life. I’d be hard-pressed to name a time when I felt more free than during the making of these songs and even now, 7 months later, I can tell I’ve regressed a bit as the video sort of intimidates me. It’s one thing to feel unabashedly yourself and quite another to see it captured and packaged to be shared with the world, but given that Redcoats centers around the idea of letting go, I imagine that’s probably a good thing.” – Zander Hawley
