Hadley McCall Thackston – Slow Burn (video)

One more late night video post. Hadley McCall Thackston’s Slow Burn has been my favorite song and music video during the last few days (ok, together with Fight by Vanessa Peters). I thought I share this a little bit later when I’ve spent more time with her debut full-length and can write a little bit about that too. But I love this too much to wait, so let’s share the video now and return to the album within a few weeks. This is such a beautiful and compelling folk song that leaves a lasting impression. My own reaction was complete opposite to slow burn though, because I instantly fell in love with the song. Oh and the video itself is also pure perfection. Especially the ending where the man at the back stands up, Hadley finishes the song with the striking last words, time stops for a split second and then the heartfelt smile and the reactions from the audience take away the pain. So brilliant.

And thanks to Adam Wilson’s Quiet Revolution for tweeting this last weekend and bringing it to my attention.
