Dear Reader Shares New Video and Music “Then, Not Now”

With Dear Reader upcoming album Day Fever due Feb 24th via City Slang, the South African artist is sharing her new single & video “Then, Not Now”.

The new video was created by Dear Reader herself, aka, Cherilyn MacNeil and Annie Boman and filmed in Berlin with the help of a projector, a generator and a 15 year old laptop. MacNeil offered some insight to the making & meaning of the track, “I love the fact that we made an ‘analog’ lyric video to pair with music that was recorded all on tape. The song is about how I have changed since I moved north, almost seven years ago, and the juxtaposition of light and darkness, naivety and cynicism (or realism, depending which way you go). So I feel like it is really fitting that the video portrays my new neighbourhood under the cover of snow and night.”

Watch/listen below the new single & video “Then, Not Now”.
