A pair of months prior to now, Minnesota’s somegirlnamedanna (that’s “some girl named Anna”) launched herself to us with a easy song titled “Hi there I Am.” On her most modern commence, she’s long gone deeper, probing aid into her childhood on “Kitchen Table,” a inner most entry that appears to be like to be aid on her life so far.
As she instructed MTV Info, she wrote the song while learning and working in Nashville, homesick for both her family and the youthful days she’d never get aid. “I started writing freely about what I missed aid dwelling, and I noticed that rather a number of it surrounded my kitchen desk,” she acknowledged. “I be aware drawing rainbows in my notebook there even when situations were laborious, feeling fancy, telling the truth, getting caught for skipping a class and getting grounded, crying in my hands when my americans got divorced, and hugging my mother after I discovered out I got into college.”
Naturally, a music video for this form of inventive assertion needed to be correct as intensely inner most. And the “Kitchen Table” clip, which premiered this day (Would possibly maybe well also 14), is certainly that, built spherical dwelling motion images and self-shot images Anna captured while self-setting aside aid dwelling in Minnesota. Rather plenty of it takes set commence air, which became a shrimp bit a question to movie in the 28-level climate.
“These were a number of of the recollections that flashed aid after I became writing the song,” she acknowledged, “after which my brother and I shot the remainder of the video on the same VHS camcorder to picture a flashback of me at an older age. I wished to get my horse in it that I grew up with attributable to horseback riding taught me work ethic, carry aid my remembrance of running in the fields barefoot, and I wished to visual show unit americans the set I came from.”
There are actually two horses in the clip, apart from as some dogs and cats. (In maybe the most becoming returning-dwelling gift ever, her dog ended up moving a number of of the tapes for the video.) But it be the horses Anna took sizable satisfaction in exhibiting off.
“The sorrel horse’s name is Tate, who I nickname Tate the Sizable,” Anna acknowledged. “I’ve had him since I became about 15. The bay is named Jack, nicknamed Jack Attack, and I competed with him via excessive college. They are both mature visual show unit horses and were my most effective pals rising up. I became most for jog a horse girl.”
As she works toward a debut commence, Anna’s been maintaining busy, spending time with her brother and mother and getting better from the shoot in the below-freezing climate. Her mother even had to behave as on-region medic, wrapping her in blankets to warm her aid up after running spherical barefoot. “Filming this total video became any such memory in itself,” she acknowledged. “I now ogle it aid and snigger attributable to of your total silly recollections we built spherical the making of it and I wouldn’t wish to commerce that for something.”
It is becoming, then, that the song itself, re-playable in the same draw a particularly shifting journal passage is re-readable, started with that one object — the solid-oak kitchen desk, which Anna and her brother carried so she would possibly pose on it for the video shoot. “It is no longer genuinely foremost what became going on in life, the kitchen desk became a congregational insist the set we would unify as a family, and every memory there helped make me who I am.”
