Hannah Georgas premieres video for “Don’t Go”
The official music video for Hannah Georgas’ “Don’t Go” premiered today at Idolator and Clash Magazine. Watch / share the video below. Of the song, The Wild Honey Pie asserts, “…strikes a perfect balance between lush production and dynamic quiet. The track slowly builds in intensity, as striking percussive hits and her vibrant vocals lead towards the powerful chorus.” Pre-order Hannah Georgas‘ forthcoming album, For Evelyn, on iTunes to receive the track instantly.
Directed by Sammy Rawal (Metric, New Pornographers), the video was produced with the financial assistance of MuchFACT, a division of Bell Media Inc. Of his inspiration behind the video, Rawal comments, “I wanted to play with the idea of ghosts being trapped residual energies within a physical space and used the back-n-forth gif effect to convey this idea of moments from the past replaying on auto-loop.”
“Don’t Go” is the lead single from Georgas’ anticipated new full-length album For Evelyn, which will be released June 24.
