Jilian Linklater captured the essence of BBQ, lots of laughs, and maybe even some beach volleyball with her new video and single, “Queen of Dandelions”.
Everyone has those images that pop into their head when someone mentions a family reunion. BBQ, lots of laughs, and maybe even some beach volleyball. A time to make new memories and enjoy the Summer as it should be; refreshing and nostalgic. Jilian Linklater, a singer/songwriter based here in Nashville, captured the essence of those memories with her new video and single, “Queen of Dandelions”.
Self-shot and edited, Jilian filmed the video on her iPhone, something we’ve seen become more and more popular and not always done well. Fortunately for Jilian, the aesthetic of this video matches the feel to the song perfectly. Quick cuts of smiles, sunshine, and backyard games lay the groundwork for “Queen of Dandelions” to really shine through. With soothing vocals reminiscent of a mid afternoon coffeehouse performance gliding over the first verse, Jilian shifts to a more folk sounding chorus, rounding out the record and really showcasing her ability as a songwriter. “Queen of Dandelions” drops officially on September 21st, the last day of Summer.
I hope ‘Queen of Dandelions’ helps you to relish in those moments – both past or present, imaginary or real, and to soak up every last drop of sweetness that you can out of summer and out of life.
