Hope Waidley Helps You Get "Closure" With a New Music Video
To say that the human heart is delicate would be a complete understatement. The organ that keeps our blood pumping can only put up with so much at the end of the day. Hope Waidley, 19, of Grass Lake, Michigan, just dropped the primer of her haunting new music video for “Closure” for Flood Magazine. Music & Mojitos thinks that this young singer has got that special x-factor, with some serious vocal chops to back it up.
Attempting to overcome heartache is one of the most Herculean tasks on the planet. Waidley uses the real pain in her voice to let listeners know that they aren’t alone in the fight of all fights. In the music video for “Closure,” Waidley wears all of her emotions on her sleeve, as she plays the piano out in the wide open. The sounds she creates are beautiful, but they didn’t come without a hard, cold price. Director Diego Cruz had a specific vision in mind.
The singer-songwriter lets it be known that at the time she wrote “Closure,” she felt overwhelmed with a sadness she couldn’t escape. In order to capture the rawness of her hurt for the music video, she had to find a way to feel the pain once more. Please just don’t ask her if she’s into sadomasochism, you bunch of scoundrels.
“I decided to jump in the pond the day of the video, hoping it would capture the drowning feeling I felt during the time I wrote the song, and then the escape that came from that,” Waidley says in a press release. “The director got on his goggles and we went for it.”
Waidley’s “Closure” is the shoulder to cry on when nobody else is around. Waidley effortlessly makes you feel that you can relate to her, even in your darkest of hours. If you’re down and feeling miserable, there’s a light in “Closure” that will make you want to fight for a better tomorrow.
This is just the very beginning for Waidley’s journey. Since she dropped her EP Hope in 2017, she racked up over a million streams for “Closure” and the track’s remix. How’s that for an impressive start?
Music & Mojitos knows while Waidley might be closing the first chapter of her career, her next one will be even more gripping. With plans of a new album this year, and a tour to go along with it, the sky is the limit for the “Closure” singer.
