Molly Tuttle Shares ‘Sleepwalking’ Video
Molly Tuttle shared a video for the song “Sleepwalking,” which appears on her 2019 album When You’re Ready. Filmed at the Dive Motel & Swim Club in Nashville, Tuttle wrote the Dylan Reyes-directed visual herself.
The singer-songwriter and guitarist spoke about the personal nature of the song and video in a statement:
‘Sleepwalking’ is one of the more personal songs on the album. I wrote it by myself, digging into the anxiety I have felt for many years about the effects of climate change and the ever-rising cost of living in the San Francisco Bay Area (where I grew up). I wanted to symbolically incorporate my experience as a woman with total hair loss (Alopecia Totalis) into the video for the song, because that part of who I am also informed the lyrics, in a subtler way. I lost my hair early on in life, and at times that experience has made me fear change and hold onto the past. With the visual, I wanted to raise the question of what it means to ‘be yourself’ again after a part of who you are disappears. What do we cling to in times of change? Hopefully each person who watches what we made will find a personal meaning in it.
The video also features strings from Lillie Mae and Ivalee. Check it out below:
