VALLENS “Tennessee Haze” video premiere on NOISEY ~ “Directed by fellow Torontonian Shelby Fenlon, the clip finds Vallens mastermind Robyn Phillips wandering through a forest and other nature zones. It’s appropriately soft-focus, and the off-kilter chord changes of the song add to the feeling of dreamy disorientation.

‘Tennessee Haze’ was one of the first Vallens songs recorded,” says Phillips, “The video is inspired by a lot of different things, but it’s emphasis is on the silver lining of the day-to-day, like the lyrics of the song.”

“It’s a staring contest with ignorance and it isn’t about to blink. It’s discomfort for those given no reason to feel uncomfortable in the first place. It hopes to be a getting out of the way of inherited or old ignorance. It hopes to be an opportunity for compassion, for individual and social progress and awakening. It’s two boys kissing.” ~ NOISEY (UK)
