Twenty-five-year-old singer-songwriter and Belfast native Conor Scott has a powerful voice and melancholic soul, which he displays on the new performance video for “Overthinking”. The single has received praise from Clash Magazine, who proclaims that it is “continuing his soaring progress, and it finds Conor dipping into his own life.”
“It’s not a break-up song, it’s more about just accepting the emotions that you are going through, saying your thoughts out loud and then seeing where your head is at… It is melancholic positivity,” Conor said.
The new visual, directed and edited entirely through video, is made up of a collage of footage made under quarantine by Conor and his bandmates. With a focus on vocal performance and live instrumentation, the performance video showcases Conor’s dynamic songwriting and deeply atmospheric sound.
Discussing the video, Conor explained “Coronavirus killed the opportunity to record the music video for my single Overthinking. So I got a bunch of friends “together” to put down a 1-Take recording video and audio to give the best possible “live” video we can get. Here is the result!”.
Conor’s music pulls inspiration from classic rock, indie, and folk, which has led him to headline stages at the Camden Assembly and The Guildhall, and even tour Europe supporting Ryan McMullan. While he is most recognised for Watch Me Go and Move On, Conor is now stepping forward with his music, revealing an aesthetic voice not heard in today’s music landscape.
