LISTEN & SHARE: Eden Sela – “Nothing But Dreams” Track
NYC-based artist Eden Sela has shared her new video “Nothing But Dreams” (directed by Nick Ace & Mari Juliano) via Impose, who describe it as “light, spirited, and dreamy.” The track is from her forthcoming new EP, Snake Mother, out July 7th. Check out the video here + the track here, and stay tuned for more new music coming soon.
Through a gradual evolution—a shedding of scar tissue and skin amongst the sandscapes and snakes lurking outside LA, in isolation and freedom—Sela wrote these songs of self-reconciliation.
The four avant-pop songs on Snake Mother tell this autobiographical tale against a restless backdrop of rusty beats, lean piano lines, and melancholic melodies. From the stutter-step samples of “Nothing But Dreams” to the come-hither keys of “Ready For Love,” it’s as if we’ve been drawn into a radio dial that exists outside of time and space.
“Jazz standards, folk, and soul are at the center of my songwriting,” explains Sela. “I am interested in raw, vulnerable expressions of emotion because I feel like I don’t see them enough.”
Sela’s brash storytelling digs in deep and doesn’t let go, channeling lucid memories—both good and bad—of long, neon-streaked nights spent in Las Vegas, New York, and Hollywood. She draws on bold and iconic expressions of femininity, like Cindy Sherman, and paradigms of servitude and romance like Cinderella.
“Snake Mother,” explains Sela, “is about the road between the world of vanity and materialism and the deep inward world of the spirit. The deals we make with ourselves to thrive in both worlds simultaneously.”
