Wouldn’t it be great if we could fix our problems before we face them? Local songwriter Eva B. Ross wrote her debut single about that very thought. The song, “Messy,” will appear on her forthcoming EP, which features just as many light-hearted melodies as you’ll find in today’s premiere. Watch Ross attempt to get it together in the new video, directed and edited by Marcella Cytrynowicz with cinematography by Gus Bendinelli, below.
Nothing is as precarious as a house of cards, but Ross has the solution: tape. Of course, that’s not a solution so much as a temporary bandage, waiting to be dealt with at another time. Another great metaphor in Ross’ new clip is her manipulation of traffic: with a can of yellow paint and a fleet of toy cars, she’s in charge, and yet things still go awry. Her sunny disposition encourages us to accept our flaws and find comfort in the fact that everyone has them. So rather than pretending to be perfect, go ahead and get messy.
