To complement her latest single Stuck In My Ways, Gold Coast singer-songwriter, DENNIS. today shares the track’s accompanying music video, which premiered via MILKY. The striking visual for Stuck In My Ways was produced and edited by The Edit Suite in collaboration with The Gold Coast Music Awards, as part of the Gold Coast Music Prize, awarded to DENNIS. in 2020.
“While it would have been very fitting to shoot a music video showing two people moving in together for the first time, I chose to visually represent the more reflective side of this significant life event and the feelings I personally had about moving in with my partner for the first time,” DENNIS. explains.
“When moving into a new space with a new person starting a new chapter in your life, I imagined it to feel a bit like being from another planet. Thus choosing to film the video at Jumpinpin which visually looks very deserted and “like an unfamiliar world”. The two versions you see of me represent being in two minds about the situation. The white version of me is very uncertain of the future and the decision to take a leap of faith while the red version is more excited about this next step of the relationship and reassures you that she is ready for whatever comes next.“
Stuck In My Ways is a heart-on-sleeve account of moving in with a partner for the first time. DENNIS. says:
“‘All your fears and worries suddenly are thrown in your face and there is nowhere to hide. However in my experience you realise that your new home is not so much about that four letter code and how you fit into this new world together, instead your home is the person you share this new way of living life with.”
Underpinned by a timeless groove and pulsing beat, Stuck In My Ways sees DENNIS. showcase her soulful vocals atop a delightful indie pop instrumental.
The track was written by Olivia Dennis (DENNIS.) and Cam Nacson, and produced by Tom Eggert, with mixing by Jarryd Shuker and mastering by George Georgiadis.
