“Static” is a bittersweet pop number that chronicles Gillian’s inner-dialogue ahead of a night out. “I actually wrote ‘Static’ minutes before leaving my house to go out with my friends… I didn't want to go, but I also didn't want to miss out,” Gillian writes of the relatable concept behind the track. Balancing melancholic, piano-driven verses with synth-soaked pop choruses, “Static” arrives as a track that is lyrically and musically in sync.
Gillian treats her music as a conduit for truth. Whether behind the piano or with a guitar in hand, the Boston-based artist chronicles life’s ups and downs, ebbs and flows, and trials and tribulations with thoughtful clarity, poetic eloquence, and a stirring soulful voice. Documenting the dissolution of a relationship, confronting the pains of addiction, or facing loneliness, she confidently conveys unbridled emotion with wisdom that belies her 16 years of age.
Gillian’s new single, “Static,” follows the release of “High,” a pensive ballad about the pains of addiction, released in late April. Her debut full-length album, 3AM, is slated for release later this year and follows up on last year's impressive independent EP, Unfiltered.
