Nicole Yun, best known as the singer and guitarist of Virginia dream-pop favorites Eternal Summers, is venturing out with Paper Suit, an album all her own, due out this Friday, June 7th via Kanine Records (Wooing, Weaves, Weeping Icon). Each single released so far has a unique personality to it, the bright pop empowerment of “Supernatural Babe,” the motorik groove of “Tommie,” and the electronic waves of synth on “And After All”. Three singles in and we’re eager to hear the record in full, to submerge into the world of Yun’s thoughtful lyricism and to stumble through the many nuances of pop music. Before that however, we’re excited to share Yun’s “Supernatural Babe” music video.
Directed by Hunter Christy, the clip finds it’s main character waking to a dead-end morning, day after day, putting on a face that is best perceived rather than truly being herself. That conforming to how others think you should be only lasts so long, and eventually our hero decides to be themselves, finding happiness in their choice to be the person they are. It’s a fitting clip for the song, one that finds Yun singing about a “supernatural babe” who strives to make it in the world by playing the part, but finding strength to break from those expectations and be the amazing person inside themselves. We don’t get to post a lot of positivity on this site, but it’s a great reminder to be yourself, and it let it all go.
