Margaret Glaspy’s breakout 2016 continues with the release of her new music video for her debut album’s title track, “Emotions and Math”. A video that shows the longing that comes with a long distance relationship, Clare Marie Vogel directed Glaspy in the new clip.
"I've never worked a desk job and this was my one opportunity,” Glaspy said of the video’s concept. “At some point in your life you miss someone with all your heart, whether it be your mom on the first day of school or a long distance relationship. Touring constantly, I know this feeling well. I wrote the idea for this video in the back of the van on tour, naturally, and flew out to LA between tours and shot it with the director, Claire Marie Vogel, who was a joy to work with."
Vogel also spoke about the making of the video, adding, "Immediately after hearing the song, I knew I had to make a video for it. Being in a long distance relationship myself, I couldn't help but relate to Margaret's lyrics and felt inspired by my own similar experiences.”
Having made her way from California, relocating to the east coast, Glaspy spent much of her time playing in various bands whilst harbouring thoughts of a solo career. The first fruits of the newly forged partnership heralds the emergence of a remarkable songwriter with the release of her debut album ‘Emotions And Math’.
‘Emotions And Math’ depicts an array of emotions, wonderfully tempered by Glaspy’s impassioned vocals, and bolstered by some exquisite guitar accompaniments that harbours an underlying defiance from a personal perspective. Having recorded the album several times in her bedroom, Glaspy self-produced the record, knowing these songs inside and out. A remarkable album from a new artist that was suitably summed up by one critic, thus; “whatever expectation you might form for her, she will upend it.”…
‘You And I’, crashes into earshot, raw guitar riffs countered by a vocal that bristles, a captivating but no bullshit tale of heartbreak that nonetheless tugs at the human emotions, delivered with a captivating honesty that encompasses the album.
