Los Angeles, CA, April 11, 2018 - On “Watch It Fall,” pop-folk artist Joseph Eidtells the story of a life lived as a spectator, an existence filled with perception, insight, empathy, and, of course, sadness. The song is told from the perspective of someone who’s lived in the same building for years, something they never intended to let happen. And yet, mingled with the regret of a static existence is the beauty of knowing a place so well, and feeling a profound connection with that shared history. Hardships become strengths.
Set to lovely and light guitar strings and a melody which marries quiet joy with melancholy, this is Eid at his most honest. The music video, filmed and directed by Patrick McPherson, brings the vision behind the music to life. On half the screen, we see Eid – on the other, we see what he witnesses: lives unfolding amongst his building’s shared hallways, gardens, and laundry rooms, turning corners and stepping through doorways. From these lives, in this place, he draws inspiration. Even if he isn’t in his ideal place or circumstance, his art blossoms.
On April 13, 2018, you can watch Joseph Eid’s “Watch It Fall,” a touching new video release from one of indie folk’s most thoughtful artists.
