Kate Bollinger’s new “Feel Like Doing Nothing” song hits the public with an enthralling and original music video in which the young artist tries to help a woman escape from a group of comical villains by which she was held captive.
Written by Kate as part of her 2019 EP I Don’t Wanna Lose, the single is a indie-rock breezy tune, with a hint of pop and jazz, representing the right to procrastinate during hot summer days, when the feeling of doing nothing and being unproductive hits the most.
Exactly as the woman in the video is trying to escape, Kate herself wanted to share with her listeners her strong need to take a break from her Virginia-based busy life. Even if she admits to enjoying it to a certain extent, she also feels it is time to give herself a break from it.
She wrote in a email to the FADER saying, “I know that I am happiest when I’m keeping myself as busy as possible, but with that I always seem to make the same mistake again and again, which is trying to do too many things and wearing myself down“, giving a reason why this new video represents her willingness to escape.
The video, directed by Phineas Alexander and Graham Barbour, is indeed the perfect metaphor of what she further explains to her public about the track.
“This song was written at that point, it’s meant to feel playful and like an abandonment of all responsibility, but it’s also supposed to feel a little uneasy. It’s a song about avoidance and escapism at its heart”, she says, and the message is loud and clear.
