NEW MUSIC: JESS WILLIAMSON - “Infinite Scroll”
01 Apr 2020
Texan's Jess Williamson shares her second single taken from her upcoming LP!
Jess Williamson will release her revelatory new album, Sorceress, on May 15th via Mexican Summer. Today, she offers its second single, “Infinite Scroll,” which follows lush lead single “Wind On Tin.” “Infinite Scroll” is a sly commentary on life online (infinite scroll is a web design technique employed by social media outlets like Instagram and Twitter), as well as an appreciation for the magnitude of time itself, and how little we have here on Earth. Glowing synth and a steady drum beat give way to Williamson’s ethereal voice. Its accompanying video, directed by Jim Larson, was filmed at a time that seems so distant now, which Williamson explains:
“We shot this video in early February, when the Coronavirus was a distant murmur and not an immediate threat here in the US. It was lurking in the ether though, and of course on some level we were aware of it, but we couldn't have imagined at the time where we'd all be today. But something was clearly tapping on our subconscious minds, because we made a video about running away from this world and escaping to another planet. Which sounds like a pretty nice option at the moment."
