GABRIELLE APLIN Releases Video for ‘Waking Up Slow’

Gabrielle Aplin has released visuals for lead single Waking Up Slow, off of her forthcoming EP Avalon, out next month.

The female-directed video (Charlotte Rutherford) stars an all female cast of dancers with Aplin featured heavily throughout. The dreamy shots in forests and abandoned streets almost give an 80s-dance vibe to the song. However, the slower pace of the cutting allows a focus on Aplin’s amazing vocal performance.

In regards to the video, Aplin states:

‘Waking Up Slow’ as a song is about appreciating life as it is and focusing on the positives and deciding to just be. I wanted to focus the video around the idea of not being able to sleep, and turning that night into an adventure instead of a frustration with no real line between reality and a dream. I wanted to incorporate an all female cast to blur the lines between day time and night time whilst having fun with fashion and colour.

Avalon EP is due out on October 6th. Aplin will be heading out on a sold out headline tour in support of the release.
