Kate Nash releases a new music video for “Horsie,” her latest song. “Horsie” as Nash stated before was the first song she had written during the pandemic and is also in the process of a documentary about adapting as an artist during the coronavirus pandemic.
Nash shared via NME about how she felt when she wrote “Horsie”: “The song was the first I wrote in the pandemic. It’s lacklustre, it’s barely lifting the pencil, it’s being lonely, about missing those lost and curling up in that heavy blanket and the comfort of well practiced sadness. This was the first song that inspired the new record and I really just wanted to not try and lean into whatever I was feeling and thinking, be as honest as possible and I found so much beauty and comfort in that.”
The new music video really encompasses the lyrics she is singing and what she’s doing during isolation. The video does require some viewer discretion. As a cinematic video it comes across as a home made video especially the part where she stands by the giant pole in the parking lot. She tries to make use of all the time she has by possibly sending a message to someone when she sings “you don’t even know” and telling them all the places she’s been going to.
