Twenty Seven is absolutely dripping in vibes. Echoes of disco and 80s synth bounce through the debut single from the High Waisted front woman’s solo venture: Hello Lightfoot. I dare you not to bop your head to the chorus.
“I finally had the courage to finish the solo EP I started nearly ten years ago after the sudden death of my best friend. It was a heavy, cathartic process and I am really proud of myself for pushing through the process.”
– Hello Lightfoot
The emotion in the vocal performance is apparent and weaves through the song.
The music video is a fever dream of color and texture. Taking place in Las Vegas, and featuring some absolutely top tier fashion choices, Hello Lightfoot is accompanied by an Elvis impersonator as she tells a story of detachment and detangling wrapped in fairy tale metaphors by way of what seems like a mild acid trip. Lightfoot’s vocals are airy, emotional and carry you through the melody while you are intrigued by the story she tells.
If this is just a taste of what we are in for with this EP we should all buckle up for one wild and well done ride.
