Victoria artist Connor Phillips tries to fill the emptiness in his new video single “Nowadays”
Victoria, BC – On Aug. 6, Victoria artist Connor Phillips released a brand new video single titled “Nowadays.”
Produced by XXYYXX, “Nowadays” is one of the best songs I’ve heard this month. The track is a moody, lonely PBR&B ballad about the slow progression of self-destruction and heartache. It’s a song for all the lonely people trying to navigate love and trying to fill the void by drinking to pass time, smoking to oblivion, and turning up just because: “We should drink just to pass time/ I only hate you when you ain’t mine/ Maybe we should smoke just to waste time/ You said last time was the last time.”
The video itself is a haunting mishmash of video clips and shots of people masked in tin foil. They’re all faceless but that really resonates. Because realistically they are every and any one of us. We all know the loneliness that takes over when someone in your life leaves. And you’re stuck with a void that’s seemingly impossible to fill back up.
