Bess Atwell - Co-op (Official Music Video)

English singer/songwriter Bess Atwell today returns with her elegant new single Co-op. Having recently signed to Lucy Rose’s Real Kind Records, the track marks an exciting start to a new chapter for the talented artist as we get a taste of her swooning folk-intrinsic pop. Speaking about her new single Bess says, "Flipping between past and present tense, I think of this song the same way I think of a memory that keeps interrupting the current moment. It's a snapshot of a time of refuge and routine. It's an illustration of mine and my partner's life together. The relationship seemed to provide me with some sort of permission to recuperate from family trauma, as if realising for the first time that there was a life outside of that chaos lulled me into an emotional slumber. Through the song I grapple with the desire for, and fear of, comfort. I used references to Virginia Woolf's 'Mrs Dalloway' to depict a vivid nostalgia and an affinity for trivialities that serve to calm when darker thoughts set in." Take a listen for yourselves below with the accompanying self-directed video.
