Pearla Shares New Single/Video “With”
Pearla today shares her swooning, slow-burning new single “With” from her forthcoming debut album, Oh Glistening Onion, The Nighttime Is Coming, out on February 10th, 2023, via Spacebomb Records. The song is out now alongside a charming, self-directed video, which premiered today.
“‘With’ is an ode to solitude. It’s about accessing a certain kind of magic when I’m alone, that I haven’t quite learned how to hold onto amongst others. In this song, the ‘with’ is not referring to another person, but to the Earth and the giant magnitude of the whole universe. Being alone, but ‘with’ everything,” explains Nicole Rodriguez, aka Pearla. “I directed and edited this video and Tyler Postiglione, who produced the record, shot it. We recorded half of the footage near my childhood home at Turkey Swamp Park, which is referenced later in the album, and the other half in my apartment. Directing/editing is brand new territory to me, and a lot of this was just play and experimentation. I really wanted to capture what solitude feels like for me. In the process, it became more about connecting with and honoring my inner child.”
