As It Is Have Released A New Music Video

“The song is an apology I’m relieved and proud to have finally said.”

As It Is have dropped a music video for ‘Hey Rachel’, taken from their new album okay. 

Speaking on their Facebook, lead vocalist Patty Walters explains, “‘Hey Rachel’ was an especially cathartic song to write, reopening old wounds after nearly ten years. Writing the song demanded being painfully honest with both myself and my sister, neither of which I was particularly comfortable doing. I had to relive past feelings of fear, sorrow, anger, pain, and, most of all, regret.”

Speaking further about the song, Patty says, “the video was written and directed by Joshua Halling, who also spearheaded the video for ‘Pretty Little Distance’. I love his interpretation of the song – reimagining mine and Rachel’s story with an empowering, inspirational feel with a happy ending in hindsight. It’s such a beautiful and powerful music video, and I’m ecstatic to finally be sharing it.”
