Alt-pop band Wilmah just released a music video for their new single "Television" and to celebrate we asked them to tell us about the track and video. Here is the story:
The song is inspired by coming to terms with losing an intimate person in your life, despite your thoughts being clouded by the facade caused by nostalgia and heartbreak. Like television shows, what you see is not often what you get. The song is a departure, both sonically and lyrically, from our first single "Welcome to America" which tackles different human rights issues we have witnessed growing up in America. We feel it is our duty as artists to talk about our view of the world while also experimenting with genre and voice. We love to be creatively free and explore different ways to keep listeners on their toes. (continue)
