Zella Day – “Only A Dream” music video
“There are times we must bury our broken hearts in the garden so that spring can do the work we cannot do ourselves. Living in the memory of what was eventually becomes a memory in itself. The years grow like flowers and the faint scent of love hangs low so that we may remember all of those we wish not to forget.” – Zella Day stated
‘Only A Dream’ is a song that reflects on all-consuming love and conquering the darkness that can come from within such an exploration. The breathtaking visual, directed by Samuel Richard and Gianennio Salucci, captures Zella Day at the forefront of an intimately-filmed and emotionally-charged love story. The video was filmed within the iconic Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, CA, and along the golden beaches and sun-soaked highways of the California coast. Also, the visual is a poetic ode to the sprawling, beautiful, and sometimes tragic journey called love.
‘Only A Dream’ contains a dreamy narrative, spell-binding vocals, and rich harmonies. Also, the mesmerizing ballad possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with a strong indie-alternative aroma.
“Only A Dream” single
“Shame on you, I’m dying in the garden. Everlast lilies in my hair. The black cats hiding in the hedges. Superstitious. I was first to galvanize the magic. Dipped my eyes in the glitter of a curse. There you were in a world of enchantment. Unimagine. I don’t care if it was only a dream. It was all too real to let go. I don’t care if it was only a dream ’cause it’s better than being alone.” – lyrics
‘Only A Dream’ follows hot on the heels of Zella Day’s “Purple Haze”, “My Game”, and “People Are Strangers” singles. All three songs serve as wonderful presentations to what listeners can expect to hear on Zella Day’s upcoming EP, entitled, “Where Does the Devil Hide”. The five-track project is a stunning collection of songs that ignite a new chapter in Zella’s exciting journey. The EP was produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and is due out August 28, 2020.
