Vancouver singer-songwriter Ché Aimee Dorval’s new album Between The Walls And The Window, is evocative and raw, marking a new territory of intimacy for the singer. Dorval recently released the latest single off the album, “Afraid,” accompanied with a video that follows the singer in scenes that evoke feelings of loneliness and melancholy as she makes a solitary trek across Vancouver. About the video, Dorval said, “This song is probably the truest reflection of a part of myself that I’ve had to work very hard to try and quell. I can be quite a fearful person. It’s difficult for me to step outside of my comfort zone sometimes and that is especially true when it involves being in the spotlight. We thought it could be powerful, both visually and personally, to shoot me singing a song about fear in public prying places where I would have to muster every ounce of courage and confidence within myself to perform.”
