Whitney Fenimore Embraces Self Love With Her Video For “Find Your Love”

Nashville-based singer-songwriter Whitney Fenimore revisits the soulful and harmonically-rich “Find Your Love” with a brand new music video. Backed by a song about “finding love for yourself in the midst of pain,” the video follows Whitney through two distinct sets: a sunlit beach with her head resting on another’s shoulder, and a dimly-lit room with neon cycling between electric blue and fiery orange. Just as the track showcases her masterful ability to seamlessly blend the genres of rock, pop, and folk, so does the video.

Drifting In Silence Announces New Album Away On Labile Records October 25 2019

Away is the new album released by ambient veteran Drifting In Silence. The project’s signature pure tones and bold minimalism return with a shroud of mystery. Just when the environment seems familiar, the entire terrain shifts, revealing what has been hiding in plain sight. The album glows with maturity and gentle attention to sound design.

Away moves slowly but methodically, the smooth swells gradually climaxing in a sublime cascade of sine waves and delicate piano work. Each track is a meditation anchored by deliberate details; enormous, lush textures are balanced with bright electronica (“Breathe”) or soft, thrumming percussion (“Obscure”, “Darkwithin”). Away revels in its use of space and the massive territory allows for Drifting In Silence to photograph with a wide lens, stretching from melancholy to exaltation in its exploration of absence and the transformational effects of time.
