Watch: Lisa Hannigan – Undertow
A highlight from her critically-acclaimed, Choice Prize-nominated third album, At Swim, ‘Undertow’ by Lisa Hannigan is a wonderfully-woven chamber pop gem meditating on the mystery of belonging and the lure of escapism. Speaking to NPR, Hannigan said Alden Volney’s brand new accompanying video for the single aimed to capture “watery drift of the words” and to communicate that sense of floating “we felt the best way was for me to learn the song backwards, so that all around me would move upwards, not down. It took a while for the reverse words and melody to sink in — but now I tend to sing the backwards version when on my own.” It’s certainly impressive stuff. Have a peek below.
