Exclusive Video Premiere: 'Weekend,' Vérité


09/16/14

ABOVE: KELSEY BYRNE, AKA VÉRITÉ


There's something about soulful pop songstress VÉRITÉ that is ethereal—dare we say, magical. The Brooklyn newcomer's vocals seem to be layered gorgeously into something that could perhaps be described as musical fairy dust—especially in the beautiful pop gem "Weekend." When asked about the story behind the song, VÉRITÉ's Kelsey Byrne said, "The song was written to be a snapshot of a moment. It's caught between the nostalgia of everything that was exhilarating and the reality of how temporary that elation can be."



Accompanying the catchy track is a video that depicts a lot of alcohol, love, tragedy, and an artistic performance of the two (seemingly) star-crossed lovers in California. The video's abstract storytelling (created alongside director Kenny Laubbacher) parallels Byrne's lyrics. "Visually, I tend to gravitate towards the more abstract especially when tied to myself," Byrne says, "so I enjoyed the collaboration because it pulled me out of my comfort zone."

Although VÉRITÉ has only released two singles thus far, we're excited to see what else she has in-store for us with her debut EP, coming out next month.
