Stay High (feat. Hippie Sabotage) [Habits Remix] by Tove Lo
I own no rights and am seeing to make no profit from this.
Let me tell you a story, because this is the second time this has happened.
Some of you will know about my song No Nimbus.
Basically I was driving one day, having had a rough few months, and I heard this song in my car.
On that drive I started to write some lyrics over it.
The next day I recorded them.
And, without getting all Craig David, within one week the song was written, recorded, had a video shot & was up for your eyes and ears.
Well...it's happened again.
I was driving a long drive home last week and a song I've been familiar with for sometime came on my shuffle but, for some reason, this time I was hearing all the gaps.
By the time I'd got home, I'd written my whole vocal.
I recorded it and fired it to Worgie.
As well as the vocal, I'd planned a video in my head.
So I sent an email out to Tom Coles (who has shot and co-directed everything since we came up with Introdiction), Chris Glasson (of the drunk podcasts and many projects over the years) and Gemma Stoddard (an amazingly talented choreographer and friend of ours).
We met the next night and started to plan this video.
Tom and I love a one shot so that was the plan once again.
Through Facebook posts on Wednesday we managed to get Amy, Caroline, Holly & Liam to volunteer their dance skills.
When we met Friday evening at 7pm none of them had heard the track.
By 10pm Gemma had choreographed the whole thing, the dancers had learned it and, with Tom shooting from a borrowed wheel chair Chris & I strapped a load of torches too, we had shot the video.
Saturday I edited it together (you'll see that, whilst there are no cuts, there is some magic).
And on the 7th day I rested/watched Progress & EBI.
And that is the story of how we got to... No Whimpers.
As with No Nimbus, I don't own the original track so can't release it but I highly recommend the original as its a banger and was an honour to fuck wit.
These little fuckabouts mean the world to me.
No Nimbus came at a time when I was having a real crisis in confidence (whether that be due to personal life stuff or even just a switch in professional focus) and getting to make some kind of art, from conception to completion, in just 7 days is amazing therapy.
And this one has similar meaning to me.
Thank you for listening and huge thanks to everyone that helped.
