Gifted Melbourne singer songwriter, Lauren Glezer has announced her new single, This Living (out September 12), lifted from her debut EP, Searching For Tall set for release on September 19. Glezer will be celebrating with an east coast tour kick starting in Canberra at The Co Op on September 10 and moving through to Melbourne for shows at The Wesley Anne on September 20, The Evelyn Hotel on September 28 and The Breslin Gallery on November 9.
Lead single, This Living is a stunningly poetic folk pop tune. Glezer’s honest, raw vocals set amidst the beautifully simple musicianship work perfectly to complement her heartfelt songwriting. “It’ll be alright in the end, and if it’s not, it’s not the end.” An ode to those who work too hard, Glezer explains, “this song was written in the name of my dad and for anyone that feels like they haven’t done it right. It’s never too late to make a change.”
Filmed by Edwin Tedjokusumo (The Pierce Brothers, Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes), the clip for This Living “was always going to be about the mundane ways of every suit wearing, train taking corporate,” says Glezer. The clip follows a corporate man through the daily grind of working life and is contrasted by a sweet, carefree young girl playing hopscotch and chalking the street. “For me, the contrast between these two characters shows how many of us have forgotten about the child that resides within us. We are too busy working hard to consider how we want to be spending our precious time on earth… I hope this film clip raises one simple question for people; am I living the life I had imagined when I was a child?”
