“Overhead” music video

Madeline Kenney confronts societal pressures about motherhood in her new track, “Overhead.” Check out the haunting music video via Stereogum. This is the second single from Kenney’s forthcoming release, Perfect Shapes, out October 5th. Pre-orders available now.

Kenney on the track: “Lyrically, ‘Overhead’ is about the societal expectations of women to have children, my own grappling with those expectations, and considering the value and depth in my life without children. For the video, I wanted to express that idea through the image of an arid, lofty, haunted house β€” not traditionally creepy, but moreso haunted by my own personal demons. The women dancers come in to exorcise those demons out, offset the heaviness, and call attention to the fact that a lot of us are having the same internal conversations. During the video shoot, we talked a lot about this, and a few of the women agreed to share some words on what the song and video represent to them.”
