Laura Gibson – ‘Two Kids’ rennen um die Wette.

0

In letzter Zeit ist es etwas ruhig geworden um die Songwriterin Laura Gibson. Das heißt aber nicht, dass sich die Musikerin seit Veröffentlichung ihres großartigen Albums Empire Builder zurückgelehnt hat.

Sie ist permanent unterwegs, diese Woche startet ihre Deutschlandtour. Auftakt ist bereits morgen in Nürnberg und passenderweise gibt es jetzt das brandaktuelle Musikvideo zu Two Kids.

Regisseur Ben Fee, der zuletzt bei Videos für Band of Horses oder The Lumineers Regie führte, hat sich den Song Two Kids vorgenommen und das Ergebnis ist “literal, abstract and weird at the same time”.


Laura Gibson über den Song: “‘Two Kids’ arose from a challenge I gave myself: to write a love song that was the pure ‘I’ll lose myself for you’ kind of love song.

Every song I’ve ever written has something to do with love, but generally it’s the difficulty of love I feel compelled to explore. Writing about myself, a women, in this particular moment and culture, I found I was shying away from those love sentiments that might be taken needy or weak or co-dependent, avoiding wide-eyed naivety, and always writing from the perspective of wise observer.

But that feeling, ‘I would give up everything for this person’ is a real thing, isn’t it? Just as true as any more considered perspective on love. At first it didn’t seem to fit among the other songs on the record, all of which speak to the idea that love is complicated.

But at times, love can be quite simple, and in the end “Two Kids” seemed to complete whatever it was I was trying to say.”
