Perth muso Helen Shanahan has taken the covers off a brand new clip, sharing with us today the visuals for her stirring new single, ‘I Only Hide’.
Filmed amongst the stunning rural surrounds of Nannup, Western Australia, the video for ‘I Only Hide’ deals with the external and internal struggle between introversion, anxiety, and a desire to break free from your shell.
“The concept was based around the idea of ‘two Helens’,” explains Shanahan. “One Helen was what we called ‘outside’ Helen, and the other ‘inside’ Helen. ‘Outside’ Helen encompassed the parts of me that were positive, free and fearless. ‘Inside’ Helen showed the parts of me that felt fearful, isolated and negative. We wanted the ‘outside’ Helen to be coaxing ‘inside’ Helen out of the house and into the light.”
Shanahan has also announced the official single launch at Perth’s Villanova Music on February 15th and will also play at the Perth International Arts Festival on March 4th.
Watch the clip and see the upcoming show details below.
