Naima Bock

Today Naima Bock is sharing a new video for “Campervan,” directed by Cassidy Hansen, and a standout from Giant Palm, her forthcoming full-length debut.

Naima says of the track, “Campervan” is another collaboration between myself and producer Joel Burton. This is a song about the falling apart of a relationship and the bleak impact that it seems to have on us as humans and the renewal that it can provide afterwards. We thought it would be fun to approach the song from a more tongue-in-cheek perspective; Joel’s arrangements draw on western cowboy nostalgia as well as orchestral influences such as ‘Concierto de Aranjuez’ by Joaquin Rodrigo and ‘Pure Imagination’ from the 1971 Willy Wonka film. The process of writing the song was a joyful and creative one, turning something depressing into something that doesn’t take itself too seriously whilst preserving the poignancy and melodrama of heartache.”

Today, she is sharing the official video for “Sundown,” which she co-directed with her manager Ava Solomon. Hannah says of the video, “We shot this video on iPhone because we really wanted to tap into the DIY vibe of the project, especially since it’s how I made the EP.  I also wanted it to capture friendship and my teenage years. I feel this “Sundown” video really ties the whole EP together.”

“Sundown” was the first song that helped Hannah realize that music could be a way to express what she was otherwise unable to articulate. She says,“‘Sundown’ takes place when I was a junior in high school and I decided to write a song about how I was feeling at the time,” she says. “I was exhausted from schoolwork, extracurricular activities, college-prep, and overall life of being a pre-college teen. ‘Sundown’ was a way for me to express thoughts I’d kept to myself.” She continues, “Sonically, this song is layered with many different background vocals, uses of reverb, chorus and pitch shift. It’s very telling of the music I was consuming at the moment.”
