HALSEY Shares Video for ‘Graveyard’
Aesthetically and sonically stunning, Halsey’s vision in Graveyard is simply magical.
‘Magical’ and ‘whimsical’ may not be the first words that come to mind when you imagine the video for a track titled Graveyard, yet any other description of Halsey’s video may fall short of conferring the enchanting character of it. Directed by Anton Tammi, and featuring Sydney Sweeney of ‘Euphoria’ and ‘Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood’, the pair whisk you into an imaginative fairground of dancing and the delights of good company. The track is lifted from her upcoming third album Manic, which will be released on January 17th 2020.
Channelling a flutter of vulnerability, the delicate acoustic guitar opening sets a tranquil accompaniment to Halsey’s breathy vocals. As claps slowly build through the track, a slow gaining traction drives the urgency behind the lyricism. Brushing upon the theme of chasing one can get in love, there’s a yearning earnestness and dedication that underpins the track which one can only convey when they’ve had personal experience of it. Opening up her heart, it’s an introspective track that gives a glimpse inside the head of Halsey, and this tenderness makes the already-dulcet track just that little bit sweeter.
