Change is an altogether familiar theme in the music world. From Black Sabbath to Fleetwood Mac, the propensity for things to never stay the same frequently comes up in famous songs. Today we’re premiering a song that’s thematically along those same lines, the tender chamber pop of “Changes” by singer and producer Seersha.
Seersha is the musical project of Kara Revnes, who hails from Atlanta, GA. The name Seersha is actually the phonetic spelling of the Irish name Saoirse, which means “freedom.” While many of her songs can be described as synth-pop or electronic dance music, “Changes” breaks from those genres significantly. Instead, this is a tender, acoustic-guitar led ballad with Seersha gently singing the lyrics in a vulnerable manner. The video features the singer at a dinner party with a large group of friends, with many of the attendees wearing masks to conceal their identity. Surprisingly, the video’s theme was inspired by, of all things, The Walking Dead (which fans of the show will remember is set in her hometown of Atlanta).
“I wrote and produced this song after watching The Walking Dead Season 6 and feeling impacted by Glenn and Maggie’s love story,” said Seersha. “For me, the song reflects on the fast pace of life and the interconnectedness of those around us. We all have choices to make in the face of inevitable change, and I wanted this song to reflect the pain and beauty, hope and hopelessness in that. ‘Changes’ is a personal reflection on our interconnectedness with those around us, and the team couldn’t envision the video without a fairly large cast. It’s the largest project I’ve ever taken on as a producer (with a cast and crew of over 30 people), but the organic camaraderie on set and incredible work of the team during the overnight shoot mirrored the crux of the song for me.”
