Ahead of her trip to America for SXSW 2018, English singer/songwriter Lucy Rose has just premiered a new and deliberately simple promo video for ‘All That Fear’, a b-side track from her 2017 LP ‘Something’s Changing’. The video originally appeared at Billboard, where it was adeptly described as “unvarnished.”

The intimate black-and-white visual approach to ‘All That Fear’ meshes perfectly with the song’s elegant musical setting, which features jazz-tinged piano harmonies behind Rose’s delicate vocals. Her opening lyrics, “think what you want about me / tell me something I don’t know / tell me something that is real”, encapsulate her mindset during the recording of ‘Something’s Changing’. At the time of its release, Rose said, “I feel more comfortable in my own skin than I’ve ever felt in my life. So there is a lot of searching as well as a lot of discovery on this record.”

Filmed by Rose’s husband and tour manager William Morris, the video for ‘All That Fear’ takes place in an Australian hotel room, at the start of a run of shows Rose played there last month, including headline dates in Sydney and Melbourne. Rose described the setting and the inspiration for the video on her Twitter: “My husband Will and I filmed this on our first night in Australia. I was jet-lagged, had no makeup on & had nothing to hide. I wanted to show a side of me that for so long I wouldn’t have shown anyone & a side of me I’ve grown to love.” Watch the courageous video for ‘All That Fear’ just below.

As with all of the SXSW 2018 showcasing artists we feature here at TGTF, Lucy Rose’s appearance in Austin is subject to change. We recommend that you consult the official SXSW Music Festival schedule for the latest information and updates. Rose’s third album ‘Something’s Changing’ is available now on Communion Records.
