Everything Is Simple by Widowspeak

Darkenin Heart

Dreampop band Widowspeak will release The Jacket, their sixth studio album, on March 11th, 2022 on Captured Tracks. Everything Is Simple is the first single from the upcoming album, a track "about shifting perspectives in increasingly complicated situations," while the entire album is based on themes of performance and music-making.

Everything Is Simple is released together with a music video directed by OTIUM. The band comment: "At the beginning of something (a relationship, a project, a job, a new place) you have this very pure feeling toward it. Everything feels less complicated because you’re oriented wholly toward that potential. It’s undefined, and that makes it easier to understand, because you can’t see the problems yet. As time goes on, you learn more, you experience more, and you see where the limitations exist: not even necessarily ones imposed upon you, but where you draw your own lines. Maybe you can’t see what was holding you back until it’s in the past, and by then others’ perspectives contradict your own. Everyone is constructing their own versions of reality. The song was originally going to feed into the drama of the imaginary band, but it’s about our own band too. I was thinking about how I’m an inherently unreliable narrator about my own life, and at the same time maybe there are no “true” stories."

OTIUM adds: "The concept is centered around the idea of trying, knowing that even if things turn out differently than you intend, the very act itself is what you are striving to achieve."
