Aerial East Makes Beauty of the Ordinary

Brianna Capozzi has made her mark as a photographer, author, and now music video director. She recently made a video with one of her best friends, and one of the eight women who was featured in her book Well Behaved Woman, Aerial East for her folky and breezy song “The Things We Build.” The single is part of her new album Try Harder, which was released last week. East makes music that’s both intimate and melancholy, warm and understated—perfect for a wintry afternoon spent in the comfort of your own home. The video for “The Things We Build” takes place in a slew of random places like Times Square and a department store, as we follow East throughout her day. With an interest in the ordinary and a penchant for sweetness, East is an artist to watch.
