“Overload,” the title track of Georgia Anne Muldrow’s latest album released in October, has now been given the music video treatment.
Directed by Capricorn Clark, the dreamy clip draws inspiration from an old photograph of the late Aretha Franklin. “[The song] felt like such a contrast between chaos and control that I wanted to find a subtle way to relay,” Clark said in a press statement.
“Aretha Franklin kept coming to mind, and an image of her in her dressing room kept coming back to me, so I built a world around that. Georgia is a huge being. She emotes this light, but she isn’t aiming for the spotlight, so I had to bring the light to her.”
The clip opens with Muldrow speaking to a group of nosy journalists who bombard her with endless questions. Our heroine, however, is unfazed by the overwhelming situation, remaining cool and collected while sneaking smoldering looks at the camera. In between cuts of her interview session, Muldrow performs the soulful jam to a mystery man.
